Fellowship of the Ring

I’ve never been able to figure out why, when people we know get engaged, they always want to put up a picture of themselves together. We KNOW what they look like . . . what we REALLY want to know is what the RING looks like. Especially in this day and age of Facebook and […]

Ring-A-Ding-Ding: Tiffany Square Cut

A little addendum to Ring-A-Ding-Ding. You know that my engagement solitaire is a standard v-prong knife-edge band.  I’ve never really cared for the extremity of the massive metal v-prong, but have never endeavored to replace it so far . . . either the jewelers weren’t keen to offer up any good ideas that let it […]

RingADingDing: Octavia Apprehended

I got up really early on Christmas Eve. Not as early as I’d be woken on Christmas Day by my giddy husband.  But close. I knew I had a FedEx delivery coming that required a signature. And it was definitely not a FedEx delivery I wanted to miss. Can you blame me? You need one.

RingADingDing: Octavia on the Loose!

Alright. I want you to steady yourself . . . make sure you’re sitting down. I was totally bowled over when I opened this up today. Ready? Bonjour, Octavia! I’ll be cliche’ and say . . . pictures just cannot do this cut justice. Octavia is a fireball.  Not pinpoint sparkle like you’d see in […]

Ring-A-Ding-Ding: Good Old Gold Octavia and Asscher Cuts

http://vimeo.com/14219774

Good Old Gold is my favorite diamond dealer with an internet presence. Well, wait. Reading that makes it sound like I even have a normal face-to-face diamond dealer, so . . . Good Old Gold is my favorite diamond dealer, period. I really like how Jonathan (Rhino) makes these little videos to demonstrate comparisons between […]

Ring-A-Ding-Ding: Kwiat

Don’t mind me . . . just unloading some more sparkly diamond goodness. This is the ring that actually started my Ring-A-Ding-Ding thoughts . . . and of course, it follows NONE of the rules.  At all.  As always, my sense of logic is one convoluted mystery after another. See?  Oval?  Halo?  A great right […]

Ring-A-Ding-Ding: Tiffany & Co.

You have two camps. People who think that the Tiffany name and tradition of “quality” is worth the extra mark-up.  And people who know they can put together the very same ring, with even better diamond stats, for much less money. Ours is a two-camp household.  Guess who is of the mind that the Tiffany […]

Ring-A-Ding-Ding: Precision Set

Ah, Precision Set.  I like to browse their site b/c their ring pics are easy to navigate as well as being nice and clear and large enough to see the details.  Plus, they have a lot of plain bands and eternity bands that fit in with The Rules. We’ll start with solitaires. Perks:  Follows the […]
