Is anyone else having St. Paddy’s Day confusion? It’s not until tomorrow – and a Friday, no less, – so I don’t know why both Chicago and South Florida held their parades last Saturday. While green beer flooded the streets of Wrigleyville and my friends in South Florida donned their best shamrock bikinis, I kept pinching myself because a) I wasn’t wearing green and b) St. Patrick’s Day isn’t until tomorrow.
Anyway, I guess that gives us an excuse to celebrate twice, right? And while Jameson certainly has its place, I think here at Designers & Diamonds we should celebrate with some pot o’ gold engagement rings, right? You don’t have to hunt down the end of the rainbow to get to these beauties. You can shop online, and that’s more magical than any leprechaun.
A double dose of sunshine gets us started, with this gorgeous and huge 3.480 carat natural Fancy Intense Yellow diamond. It’s a radiant cut certified by GIA with 1.20ctw of trillion cut white diamonds set in a classic 14kt yellow gold setting.
Guys, I am obsessed with this halo. I love the vintage vibe from its two tone setting nearly as much as I love that big old 1.27ct round brilliant center. The accent diamonds add an additional carat of diamonds, and you really need to check out the side profile of this beauty.
Welcome to the Tacori portion of our talent show! This stunner comes from the Ribbon collection (via the Tacori Gold line.) 18kt yellow gold embraces .42ctw of Gorgeous, Very Sexy (G, VS) diamonds and is just waiting for a round brilliant or princess cut center stone.
It’ easy to mistake this cushion shaped halo for the actual sun in the sky, but it’s *just* a member of Tacori’s RoyalT family. A generous soft square halo is ready for a round brilliant or cushion cut center stone, while the sculpted setting holds another 1.28ctw of diamonds.
This delicate, floral inspired halo features soft petals of 18 karat yellow gold set with impossibly dainty diamonds, plus the substantial diamonds on the band – they all add up to .50ctw.
This stunning three stone vintage beauty is a true classic. With a perfectly balanced trio of round brilliant diamonds, the 14karat yellow gold setting plays backup singer in serenading you. The diamonds are 1.63ctw and J color, SI2 as certified by GIA.
Are you into yellow gold engagement rings? I love that they’re an alternative to white gold or platinum that still feels so timeless. Which of these is your favorite?
