Last night I met a lovely woman that was purposed to with a Georgian style engagement ring from Doyle and Doyle. Doyle and Doyle is a jewelry store in New York that specializes in antique and estate sale jewelry. Her ring was rose gold with a very unique setting called a buttercup and a beautiful mine cut diamond set in the center. The stone had a lot of fire and luster.
Rose Cut Diamond Ring centering a buttercup set foil backed rose cut diamond. The ring fashioned in 10k yellow gold. Georgian with contemporary shank. (SKU: 20176) $2500
Rings like this are often passed down from generation to generation. A tradition I fully endorse. If your looking for a antique heirloom ring in New York Doyle and Doyle is a great shop. There are many antique jewelry store out there, you just need to do your homework and look for store with a good reputation. Recently I was in New Orleans and found some really lovely pieces at the Silver Smith in the French Quarter for 1000-1600$.
18K white gold and set with a .13 carat round diamond. A square box with carved corners holds the center stone.$500

Rings from the shadow collection
Sarah Graham's Pebble Collection has some nice solitaries that are simple with unique texturing and petite diamonds. I find her blackened steel work really interesting and different. Grahams mixing of blackened steel with finished gold bezel setting, set with the cognac diamond is seen throughout her Pebble collection. The diamonds really pop with the contrast between the two metals and on the larger band it really shows even more so. If you like the blackened band I recommend looking at some of her other pieces in the Pebble collection. There are some very ornate wide bands worth looking into for wedding bands.
