Uneek Engagement Rings Eye Candy

So RLJ just started carrying this new designer line, Uneek Fine Jewelry, and I’m obsessed. Combine micropave with funky shapes and cuts, plus modern twists on classic jewelry mountings, and you have a recipe for a gorgeous and yes – unique- engagement ring. A solitaire gets a splash of sparkle from three sides of prong set accent diamonds embedded in mil grained white gold. The texture is subtle, but rich. Speaking of texture – again we’ve got diamonds coming from multiple angles, and a split shank that combines micropave, double mil grained borders, and graduated accent stones in the space Read More →

Friday Faves

This is a joke, right? Who would pay this much for this brand? File Under: Rookie mistakes. When we first moved to Chicago, I immediately ordered snow boots. I got the Sorel super chunky bootswiththafur, and wore them the first time I saw a snowflake, and they rubbed my heels SO BAD. I returned them, bought a pair of Hunter boots & wellie socks and all was well in that winter where there was an actual 80 degree in December. Then last year happened. I re-ordered the Sorels, and they still aren’t super comfortable, but they were warm and that’s Read More →

Hot Engagement Ring Trend: The Square Halo Engagement Ring

The square halo engagement ring is taking the bridal world by storm. It’s the perfect combination of the classic round brilliant diamond and the trendy cushion cut silhouette.

The RB isn’t going anywhere, so even if the halo Read More →

It’s high time I start sharing more snaps from my trip to Baltimore last week! Things like BEYONCE  , the Emmy’s (major let down) and a double header of Bachelor in Paradise (CODY! AT LAST!) distracted me. But there’s no better way to celebrate Wedding Wednesday by sharing engagement ring eye candy. And this week I’m sweet on favorites from the Baltimore show. It should come as no surprise that I made a beeline for everything and anything fancy yellow diamond, so yes, today’s eye candy is lemon flavored. I hope you don’t mind and that you won’t be disappointed. And if Read More →

Engagement Ring Eye Candy: Around Brilliant the Bend

Cheesy pun? Check. Wearing pink? Check. It must be Wednesday! And on Wednesdays, do we not only wear pink, we celebrate engagement ring eye candy – luckily, RLJ just got in a nice new batch of fabbity fab round brilliant diamond engagement rings. They’re as varied in style as they are in price point, which is always good for the world’s most popular diamond cut. Round brilliant girls might be classic, but that doesn’t men they’re all traditionalists, or even that they all want a solitaire. Some ladies just like more diamonds, and that’s a trait I’ll never fault anyone Read More →
