What type of bride are you?

by Catherine Angiel November 20, 2015

You've found that special person, the love of your life, the one you want to be with forever. You've likely scoured small jewelry stores, some "big box" jewelers, maybe even skimmed a few pawn shops looking for an engagement ring as unique and special as the person who'll be wearing it. You don't want something plain and traditional, a boring emblem of your love. You want something edgy, current. You want something different.

But you haven't found it. What are you doing wrong?

Likely, you've been hunting for the wrong thing.

Stop looking for a piece of jewelry that says "We're engaged" and find finger candy that cries "No one else like this on earth!"

That's the kind of ring Catherine Angiel designs.

Catherine Angiel is not only a NYC jewelry designer, but also an out-of-the-box thinker who isn't afraid to offer up something that makes a statement.

Too many engagement rings are focused merely on the cut and size of the stone. Bling is best, and bigger is better, right? Well, sure, that's nice, but size and sparkle aren't everything, especially in today's fashion-forward world.

Edgy Black Diamond Engagement Ring

Colored diamonds are emerging as one of the most exciting components in fashionable diamond jewelry, color has turned into a huge statement maker.

Diamonds come in a wide range of colors, from crystal clear to deep black, and Catherine Angiel has created a stunning black diamond engagement ring that's sure to make your beloved's eyes pop.

The edgy hue of the large rose cut diamond is beautifully contrasted with the paleness of the white gold band, making it a fitting companion to any occasion and with any wardrobe. Wearing this ring only amplifies the truth that black and white will never go out of style.

It's all in the band. Gone are the days of a simple, plain band! Today's fashionistas are about "pop", texture, and dimension in everything from home decor to clothing to--you guessed it--jewelry.

Tattoo-Inspired Engagement Ring

Enter the tattoo ring. That's right: a ring with a band inspired by a tribal weave tattoo. The diamond is pristine yet humble, weighing in at a dainty .75 carats, and is the sideshow to the nontraditional artistry of the band. With its ebbs and flows of white gold, this ring's band speaks volumes of the character of the person wearing it. It says, "I'm sophisticated, but unordinary; in vogue, but non-traditional; youthful, but not naive."

Browse the rest of Catherine Angiel's line of engagement and statement rings and find the perfect piece to tell that special person in your life, "I love the one and only, unique YOU".

The difference between lab grown and natural diamonds
The difference between lab grown and natural diamonds

by Catherine Angiel June 16, 2017

Lab grown diamonds are considered authentic, and ecofriendly, with the same composition and structure of natural diamonds.  Scientist grow these stone in 8 short weeks, where it takes the earth millions of years for veins of rough to surface. 


While these stones are very close to natural diamonds in their characteristics and beauty, they are not the same as machines are able to distinguish which are natural and which are scientifically created.

As far as an investment; experts in the jewelry industry have doubts man made stones will go upward, because this is a new concept.  Similar to electronics, they feel in time the prices will go down once they become mass produced.

Moreover, natural diamonds make a positive impact in other countries, specifically Africa’s continent.  The diamond industry provides an honest livelihood, schools, medicine, and hospitals. 


Examples include Botswana who has one of the better medical systems in Africa. The Botswana government has many times said that if not for their diamond industry, the medical system would collapse.

The Kimberly act was created by the United Nations General Assembly, to establish requirements in the industry that controls rough production and trade. This has helped minimize the sourcing of unethical diamonds and has provided ethically sourced diamonds, and reduced the flow of conflict diamonds down to 1%.

Lastly, the diamond industry cares deeply about sourcing ethical diamonds, and ending the crisis in Sierra Leone.
