This gorgeous coral necklace sold before we could get better pictures but we've decided to share it anyway. This is hand carved natural coral from the Victorian era with those deep orange-red hues we're always on the lookout for. The color of the stone will actually change (a bit) depending on how much it's worn & what your ph balance is. Rebekah has a coral ring from the same period that she wears everyday & has gone from a lighter orange to an incredibly deep red. Part of what makes this necklace so special is how each 'tooth' on the strand is completely unique. More like this soon..we hope!

It's been awhile since we've featured diamond engagement rings on the blog but as we're coming in to the height of our season, seemed like a good time to share some of these beauties. The two below came in last week - perfect examples of the singular quality these rings offer. The one at top is quite special with incredible white gold filigree work & a perfectly low profile set off by brilliant antique diamonds. The ring at bottom is more classic but no less stunning, sparkling diamonds with a large solitaire set in gorgeously detailed & engraved platinum - wow.

If there is one stone that evokes all the brightness & light of Spring it would have to be emeralds. We had two orders for large carat emerald engagement rings that are so beautiful we had to share them. The ring pictured at top features an incredible 2 ct (!) oval emerald alongside hand made diamond leaves at either side. The 14k yellow gold sets of the green brilliantly. The ring below is a 1 ct 'emerald cut' emerald in a hand made bezel alongside two sparkling antique diamonds. It featured a florentine finish which we hadn't gotten to yet when the picture was taken but..you get the idea. Stunning!
