and again and again

And he does it again!  Todd Reed's pieces are like no other.  He has a signature style yet his designs continue to evolve, something I am trying to tune into myself as a jewelry designer.  This brown pear-shaped diamond eternity band is exquisite!  The east west setting in combo with the varying shades of brown diamonds is just pure perfection!

yellow gold lovelies

With wearing much more yellow gold now, I have pondered what kind of engagement ring I would have gravitated towards if my love of yellow gold was stronger at the time when I got engaged.  There is no doubt I would have looked for an antique ring and I have so fallen in love with box set engagement rings, I can't imagine not having one at this point.  This ring is like a yellow gold sibling of my actual platinum engagement ring!  But here are some other strong contenders...
This filigree beauty from Erie Basin would have been right up my alley when I first started searching for rings and before I was frightened away from delicate filigree for everyday wear!
This stunning beauty is very similar in feeling, with it's leafy scalloped embellishments, to the first ring I picked out to be my own!

And the design of this Victorian beauty would have been hard to resist!

for September babies

Hands down my favorite birthstone!!!  One of the many reasons I got married in September is so I could incorporate this gorgeous stone into my wedding rings.  One of my all time favorite looks is a classic diamond and sapphire Art Deco ring.  Nothing says classic Art Deco like a lovely geometric design with diamonds and sapphire detail and I could have posted about a million different rings to represent.  But I wanted to make this birthstone post all about sapphires and making sure that stone took center stage.  This lovely Art Nouveau ring represents the true beauty of a sapphire, with a lovely warm green gold filigree setting and a rich blue ceylon sapphire.
