We bring our engagement rings posts to a close this week with one of our own designs. Probably our best selling ring - the dearly adored Hollin Wheat Band featuring an antique mine cut diamond with gorgeous clarity & color. This ring is an instant classic in that it updates it's vintage inspiration ever so slightly with it's streamlined appeal and offers something that's hard to find - a beauty that's both timeless and utterly wearable.

Today we have a beautiful 18k White Gold early Deco Ring showcasing some incredible filigree work & a stunning 3/4 carat center diamond. The great thing about this is that it's quite substantial yet retains a delicacy & lightness due to the filigree blossom and thinness of the band towards the bottom. It is also notched as they used to do on some rings of this period so that when you wear it with a wedding band it will fit together perfectly. Gorgeous, and you won't see one of these on every finger.

Today we are featuring one of our own designs made specifically for a client. This is a handmade 14k Rose Gold band with a 14k Yellow scroll setting holding an Emerald Cut Ruby (!) adoringly flanked by two antique white diamonds on either side. While an Emerald Cut Ruby sounds like a contradiction in terms, what it delivers is something quite lovely - a large Ruby with beautiful color and translucency that both absorbs & refracts light equally. Our customer was very happy with this as were we!

Every day this week we're going to be featuring a different Engagement ring. Some will be antiques and a couple will showcase our own creations. We'll raise the bar high with this incredible early Deco Platinum & Diamond ring. Did someone say 'Bling'?! The center diamond is a full 3/4 carat with gorgeous side diamonds going down the stunning handwork on the band - all of which adds to the unmistakable sparkle of it. Part of what makes it so special is that it's simultaneously simple & ornate, just beautiful!

Happy Valentines Day to one & all - however you're spending the day we hope you feel the love. This morning in Northampton I was headed back thru town after dropping our daughter off at school & couldn't help notice the huge banner hanging from the Rte 9 bridge that reads 'I love you Claire'. Then as I stepped out of the car to get my much needed coffee I stumbled (literally) on this - rose petals all over the sidewalks as far as you can see.

Due to the inclement weather we are receiving in BOTH of our stores, we have decided to extend our Valentine's Sale through Tuesday, February 12th. We want to make sure that all of the sweethearts out there get something lovely this Valentine's Day, so if you can't brave the storm this weekend (safely of course!) then come by either shop on Monday or Tuesday to receive your discount.
Snuggle up with your sweetie this weekend, and stay warm and safe!

If you're looking for the ultimate special something for that special someone this might be it! Arriving in Cambridge today we have this stunning Art Deco ring with natural corn flower blue Sapphires & mine cut Diamonds. These are the kinds of rings we're always looking for but are so hard to find & this, one of the nicest we've had. The large center Sapphire measures 40 points with two 30 pt Sapphires to each side, the four Diamonds measure 5 pts each with beautiful clarity & color. The setting is perfectly low to the finger which balances the antiquity with a modern look. It looks incredible on the finger, come see for yourself!
