My love for antique jewelry is well established, but I want to be sure I don’t ignore the plethora of beautiful things available from contemporary designers.
This regal princess of a ring is by Michael M. A very high profile – I’d be worried it would always be getting snagged on things in my purse – but it’s so pretty it’s probably worth it. I know that halos are very big right now, but I think this kind of design can encompass the same ornate feel in a more unique way. Not that I don’t like halos, but there’s something to be said for variety. This versatile setting can hold almost any cut of diamond.
This beauty is pretty straightforward, but in a glorious way. It features a 2.49 carat cushion cut diamond (color and clarity of H/SI1) within a halo of small white diamonds. Please note how the shoulders taper slightly as they move inwards – I think that’s a really lovely detail. It lends a sense of delicacy and elegance to the ring.
Graff signature pink diamond engagement ring, set with a 5.03ct cushion-cut diamond on a pink diamond rose gold band. I mean…look at it. So fabulous.
Isn’t this one lovely? So lyrical and delicate, with the gently twisting band of pave. It’s also by Michael M, and is shown here with a round brilliant cut center stone, although the website says that it can be set with almost any diamond shape.
