Engagement Rings? Royal Asscher Has You Covered!

Royal Asscher Eclipse Diamond Engagement RingLet’s have a chat about some of the latest things about the Royal Asscher family – it has been quite a while since I have done a blog about what they are doing right?  Well, I have to say that they are up to nothing but good and as always, they come to impress.

Their Eclipse collection is no different at all and this is just one engagement ring from that collection.  I love the fact that this particular ring not only has a beautifully cut diamond in the middle, but the ring itself is thicker and the circles of diamonds are very attractive.

The Royal Asscher Eclipse collection is something that I took a deep look at every single piece and I have found that they are all beautifully done and once again, the Royal Asscher is a family that I would be very proud to have on my finger!

Say It With A Ruby!

Ruby RingsJewelry is more than just the look of it – when you wear a piece of jewelry, there is something that goes along with it … status.  That is very true when you wear a ruby.  Not many people can pull a ruby off, but there are some of them that can and personally, I think that real rubies are absolutely beautiful.  The Indian population is known for their use of rubies – whether it is on their foreheads or on their toes, rubies are very apparent and definitely part of the culture.

However, that does not mean that you can not wear them either.  Actually, ruby engagement rings are becoming increasing popular and I think that is beautiful!  I love – love, love red gemstones and rubies are definitely my favorite!  Whether you surround them with diamonds or you are looking for just a solitary ruby – your ring will look beautiful!

So really – rubies are the best in the world for the changing of the times and they are becoming popular everywhere!
