BCBG Max Azria  "Good Style, Good Attitude"

We've fallen in love already with the shows so far. Especially BCBG Max Azria's show.

Luxorius fur was the star of BCBG Maz Azria's 25th anniversary runway show. It was seen on fabulous statement coats and cozy sweatshirts. These pieces were paired with retro inspired caftans and dresses. Tying each look together were knee high boots, giving the whole collection an elegant 1970's vibe. 

We think Catherine's Champagne Diamond Full Finger Ring would look amazing with this collection!

History of Engagement Rings | NYC Jewelry Artist January 05 2014, 0 Comments

It's proposal season!

 

Did you know when engagement rings first originated? Neither did we until we stumbled upon an article from 25karats.com!

The first engagement ring dates back all the way to our prehistoric ancestors, the cavemen! Archaeologists believe that men would place braided cords around the woman's wrist, waist and feet. This tradition then ended when the ancient Egyptians began using rings in their marriage ceremonies. 

The first true example of an actual wedding band, or engagement ring started in Egypt about 2800 BC. Archaeologists uncovered several mummies from that era that were buried with silver or gold rings on their left hands. Ancient Egyptians believed that the left ring finger was connected to the heart, which is a tradition that we still use today!

The first diamond engagement ring Archduke Maximilian of Austria gave to his love when he proposed to her in 1477. It was a unique ring that featured several pieces of flattened diamonds that spelled the letter "M" for her name, Mary.

The tradition of giving rings didn't become popular until the 1700's with "posey rings" in Europe. "Posey rings" were bands that were inscribed with lines of poetry and given to sweethearts as a token of their love and affection.   

In the 21st century, engagement have evolved. Be it  a traditional white solitaire diamond setting to a more edgy black or grey diamond setting a ring is and always will be extraordinary way to say, "I love you".
