Rings Fit For A Fairy Tale Princess

What kind of ring would one give a fairy tale princess from Brother's Grim tales - an Elegant beauty set against dark forces in mysterious tales? A ring from Cathy Waterman.

Wheat Band with Princess Cut Diamond Platinum / Diamond Wheat Band with Princess Cut Center Stone $4,920.00

Jeweler Cathy Waterman's work is whimsical with little bit of gothic fairy tale. Waterman's work could easily adorn Snow White or Cinderella. Her "Love of my life" series is truly worthy of a princess. These pieces are more refined then some of her other work with fine milgrain and lots of small fine diamonds set throughout a single band or helping accent the large stones.

Hexagonal Diamond Ring / Diamond Hexagonal Bezel Set Ring $2,960.00 Milgrain Band $1,395.00

Single Spidery Prong Ring Diamond Single Spidery Prong Ring with Engraved Shank $3,080.00

Ruby Branch / Ruby Branch Band $848.00
Milgrain Ring with Scalloped Flowers Gold / Platinum / Diamond Three Row Milgrain Band with Scalloped Flowers $1,782.00

For the traditionalist, her simple diamond and platinum solitaire settings are elegant and lovely and can work with any number of bands that she produces. For the non-traditionalist she also works with a wide range of other gem stones; turquoise, aquamarine and sapphire to name a few. With her work its possible to mix and match bands and rings very nicely, so one could easily sandwich a engagement ring between to band nicely.

Dyan Ring
Bezel set diamond, 20K peach gold.
(I've seen this ring with a chocolate diamond it's a great.)

Reinstein/Ross has been a New York City bride-to-be favorite for many years. All their pieces are one of a kind. They are handmade from scratch with no prefabrication process, so each piece is truly made to order. This boutique's designs are Etruscan and Egyptian inspired using classic metal smithing techniques. Their custom peach and apricot gold alloys are signature in there work. Reinstein/Ross claim many women pick their rings long before they have found the husband.

I've only recently discovered Reinstein/Ross while shopping in Soho. Amazing since I've lived in New York 12 years. Reinstein/Ross pieces are larger and thicker then my usual taste in jewelry but they have many options. Here on display are 3 pieces in particular that show the scope of there work and price range. But I'm sure there is something for everyone's style and price range in this collection.

The first time I spotted the Blueberry ring was probably over a year ago while browsing through the Clay Pots site. I immediate loved it for it's simplicity, elegances and delicate execution. I was also surprised at the affordably of the set . Carla Caruso has sculpted a beautiful set of rings that twist and interlock. The Willow rings are a lovely streamed lines version of it the same organic idea.
