In honor of us "common folk," I thought I'd highlight some of the amazing jewels that I've seen around town. So, welcome to the midwest, this is our scene!
|I spotted this amazing little beauty at the KU (as in the University of Kansas!) basketball game. It's a yellow gold engagement ring with a pear cut emerald & diamond side stones. The ring is flanked by two different yellow gold & diamond wedding bands! I loved the fact the wedding bands were not identical! The common materials (yellow gold & diamonds) unified them but I loved the fact their wearer wasn't afraid to mix & match. Awesome!|
|It was a Rock Chalk Jayhawk kind of night! I spied these little beauties, & after some careful interogating, discovered that the top ring is actually an antique palladium tablet ring from the mid- to late 1800s featuring old single cut, light pink diamonds. It was stunning & it's craftsmanship was so unique! It had this amazing rustic appeal to it that I just love! The bottom ring is an estate piece featuring three modern, brilliant cut diamonds set in platinum. I really loved how the wearer mixed eras & wasn't afraind to mix the rustic-ness of the tablet ring with the more traditional (and modern!) trilogy ring.|
