This morning we have an amazing art deco style engagement ring and wedding band from a New York bride who just celebrated her one month anniversary. People often ask her if the ring is an heirloom, but both the ring and the wedding band was made by the very talented Leigh Jay Nacht in New York to perfectly suit her vintage aesthetic.
Selecting a wedding band that matches your ring and style can be a challenging task, which is why we are especially thrilled to feature this set which is elegant yet completely unique and creative.
Cut: Round Brilliant (the triple prong setting gives the illusion of a square shaped stone, when it is, in fact, a round brilliant cut)
Setting: 1930s replica platinum mounting. The center stone is held in place by 4 triple claw prongs and the shoulders tulip-shaped “V”s with 7 bead set diamonds within each “V”. An additional bead-set diamond is set below each “V” which flows into a knife-edge shank.
Wedding band: Replica art deco platinum band contains 24 round diamonds set in a pattern of marquise shapes with millegrained edges, with additional detailed design on the sides.
Jeweler: Leigh Jay Nacht, New York
About the ring: “I am 1000% thrilled with the wedding band. It took me a while to pick it out since I just wasnt sure what would go with my engagement ring – I had it narrowed down to this one and a more modern infinity band, but after sleeping on it, it became abundantly clear that this was the one, and now I cant get over how perfect they are together. Leigh is AMAZING!”
Today we feature a ring with a gemstone that we have not seen on RingSpotters yet – Jade. Known for its varying shades of green, Jade can vary from intense, even green (similar to apple green and spinach green), to the lighter and to more heavily speckled shades of green. Jade is considered to be a symbol of beauty, grace, and purity in Chinese culture, and is thought to be the most noble of all gems. Paired with baguettes and rounds on a yellow gold setting, this ring really is one that will be spotted from across the room.
It being the first full week of September, we thought we’d celebrate sapphires – the birthstone for this month. You may not know this little piece of trivia, but not all sapphires are blue. In fact, they come in a variety of colors…even green! Today’s ring is a light green sapphire and diamond floral cocktail ring that is such a delicate beauty. And, its an antique!
We love leaving you with jaw dropping eye candy every Friday. This morning’s ring is absolutely stunning with its triple bands of diamonds that converge into a surprising single sapphire bottom band. Scroll down and you will see what we mean.
Here’s a beautiful piece to end your week…a stunning pearl ring surrounded by a halo of small square cut diamonds. So unique, so classic, so fabulous.
RingSpotters loves cocktail rings. We love the bold colors, spirited designs, and chic edge they give an outfit. Who knew that cocktail rings became popular during the prohibition in the US? Apparently, women wore these fashionable pieces at illegal “cocktail” parties — always dressing up to the nines and showing of their glamorous bold rings. Soon enough, these cocktail rings became status symbols in the ’40′s and ’50′s and have continued to be fashionable, chic, and definitely fun to wear.
This week, we would like to feature to some fabulous cocktail rings we have received. From colorful gems to diamond studded pieces, they are definitely excellent accessories and eye candy galore.
