Fancy Yellow Cushion Cut Engagement Ring Eye Candy

Surprise, surprise, I’m back with another fresh batch of fancy yellow engagement ring eye candy! We picked up a whole bunch of loose fancy yellow cushion cut diamonds, and had some fun mounting them in totally different styles – with the exception of the first two. They’re twinsies. Albeit with a  major budget difference. But I’ll stop chatting so we can all get to staring at this Fancy Yellow cushion cut engagement ring eye candy. First up is this huge 10.67 carat fancy yellow diamond. It’s light fancy, but warmed up nicely by a yellow gold setting. The clarity is Read More →

Vogue just released their guide to engagement rings for every bride. They’ve helpfully broken up the rings by category, including estate & antique, colored diamonds, “minimal” (?), modern, non-diamond, and traditional. The selection is impressive, with zero loyalty to the halo. Vogue likes to be on the cutting edge.

RoundUp: Peace Out May

TGIF, readers! After a short and sweet work week, I’m still more than ready to get back to weekend-ing. Lilly Pulitzer is calling my name, and I’ve got a summer jewelry wardrobe to update. Not to mention all of the stalking I need to do this weekend – have you seen how great the Couture, JCK and Us Antiques shows coverage is on The Gram?

Luckily (another Vegas joke, I’m stretching Read More →
