At Doyle & Doyle, we are constantly inspired by the world around us. Especially our brides. As such, we curated a special collection of engagement rings and elegant jewels specifically for the women of the Style Me Pretty community who inspire us daily with their incredible wedding style savvy. The pieces featured in our collection represent our range of gorgeous looks from a variety of eras at different price points, so we’ve decided to feature two Engagement Rings of the Week handpicked from our mini boutique.
First, feast your eyes on our staggeringly gorgeous Art Deco Diamond & Sapphire Engagement Ring, which centers an Old Mine Brilliant cut diamond flanked by calibre cut sapphires and set with twenty-four single cut diamonds weighing app. 0.28ctw., fashioned in platinum. Pave diamonds and calibre cut stones were common to Art Deco pieces, which were characterized by strong geometrical patterns, with styles embracing the modern age with streamlined design, symmetry and decoration. Rich colors were introduced in Art Deco designs through the use of rubies and sapphires, along with bold emerald, onyx and coral. Today, glamorous diamond bracelets, rings and chandelier earrings are among the most popular incarnations of this style. Our engagement ring of the week is one of many Art Deco style pieces in our collection, which start as low as $500.
Our Heirloom by Doyle & Doyle Bezel Scroll Rings – in white and yellow gold – offer a counterpoint to the decadent splendor of our Art Deco featured engagement ring. They are a modern interpretation of some of our favorite antique looks – a study in simple, yet elegant, ornamentation. The rings’ silhouettes draw heavily from designs of the mid 17th century, but have been reimagined for the modern wearer. Details such as the delicate scroll pattern, which would have originally been created in fragile enamel, have been updated for modern wear. Subtle changes to the shank to add depth to the pattern, as well as durability and comfort, allow the carved pattern to subtly peak out over the edge and provide the wearer a beautifully ornamented piece which can be enjoyed when viewed from any angle. Similarly, an eight sided star shaped a jour beneath the diamond ensures no angle of the ring is left overlooked. The ring’s bezel has proportions closer to rings gracing the fingers of ladies at the Elizabethan court, and in contrast to many modern styles has been given a thicker wall, adding protection for the stone and accentuating the size of its jewel.
The feature rings from our SMP curated collection represent two ends of the incredible spectrum of our collection, and we’re sure brides-to-be will find a whole world of rings to set their imaginations wild.
