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".

'Chasing the dragon with jewelry designer Catherine Angiel' July 12 2010, 0 Comments

Dragons, gothic crosses, skulls and the classic arrowed heart that reads “mom”, if you think this is a description of artwork on the wall of a NYC tattoo parlor you’re mistaken. I just walked into Catherine Angiel, a Greenwich Avenue jewelry store located in the West Village.

I’ve always felt tattoos forward implications of danger and mystery onto their owner. Yet, making a lifelong commitment to a particular design is dreadfully disconcerting. (That, and there’s always my mother’s voice in the back of my head warning how it will look when I’m eighty with sagging skin) I conquered my fear of tattoo commitment at Catherine Angiel. Twirling around in front of the store’s mirror with a white diamond dragon pendant shimmering around my neck, I felt like a rock star and I decided that I’d finally found a “tattoo” with which I could form an allegiance.

Now for most of us, a diamond encrusted pendant is not an impulse buy. However, until one can save for the real McCoy, Catherine Angiel also offers silver versions without diamonds that won’t break the bank. You have to be buzzed into the store, which can be a little intimidating, but once inside the music is thumping and the casual atmosphere makes you feel completely comfortable. The store also offers engagement rings and slightly more conservative jewelry designs if the rock and roll experience of her tattoo inspired collection is not for you.
