I’ve written about, criticized, adored and appraised hundreds of engagement rings since entering the jewelry industry. I wished and hoped for one day to finally have my own since I was little. I am happy to announce, on a personal level, that I am engaged and wanted to share with all my readers my ring. Here are the details:
Victorian, circa late 1800s, 14k rose gold bypass ring set with two Old European cut diamonds, each in six delicate “claw” prongs. Each diamond is has a VVS-2 clarity and average color of LM range, and total approximately 2.60 carats. Of course, it is from Walton’s Antique Jewelry, where I work.
*thank you Matt, looking forward to lots of fun memories and a lifetime together
ALSO, I will be live tweeting from the Miami Antique Jewelry Show starting tomorrow! So I may be MIA (literally) from here for a week–but daily updates on Instagram and Twitter from the show will continue. So follow me on Instagram and Twitter!
