Valentine's Day has, no doubt, created a fresh crop of newly-engaged couples out there. I'm sure that this romantic holiday has also inspired some of you to daydream about the perfect engagement ring. 


I, for one, have been dreaming of the perfect ring for a very long time. I favour a classic round stone, dressed up with thin pave bands. Antique rings also appeal to me, for their uniqueness, and for the beauty of wearing something that has been around for a very long time.


I will spare you a discussion of the symbolism of enduring love that an engagement ring is meant to convey, and all that jazz. You've heard it before. I'll just let you enjoy the loveliness of the sparkling diamonds and exquisite craftsmanship of these rings.

Hope you enjoy sighing over them as much as I do.

I do believe we have very similar taste in diamond rings!

Your favorite ring is actually a brilliant earth ring! I've seen it on their website before! http://www.brilliantearth.com/Petite-Shared-Prong-Diamond-Ring-(1/4-ct.tw.)-Platinum-BE1PD25R25-391/?show_setting_tab=true

Do you have any information on where to purchase the first picture on this blog of a piece of fingernail jewelry? Thank you.

Hi Carlos,

Thank you for visiting.

I'm sorry, no, I don't know anything about the nail jewelry in that image. Perhaps your local nail salon could be of assistance in this matter.
