My one engagement ring is pretty run of the mill, though very big and heavy. It is made from my mother’s, maternal and paternal grandmothers’, best friend’s and my father’s diamonds and gold. The engagement ring was in the centre, the wedding and eternity rings are on either side, now soldered together.
My other one is rather unusual. Black gold and a black upside down diamond of three quarters of a carat. I don’t have it anymore but it looked something like this. I wanted something that looked like nothing but was very precious. Like me. The one below comes from this shop on Etsy and is one tenths of a carat.
My wedding ring for that one was white gold and black diamonds. When I got married I stopped wearing the engagement ring and just wore this one.
I have always loved black diamonds and was quite sad when they gained in popularity recently. The good thing about that though is that you can find them more easily these days, though they are usually treated.
So for that reason, these rings from JKASHIArtStudio on Etsy really appeal to me for wedding and engagement rings. They are unusual, beautiful, rugged and for people for whom the traditional choices are not enough.
