Sarah Perlis recently posted some new work. She posted this ring and it has two of my favorite things; Rose cut diamonds and is an eternity band - perfection. This ring would complement any number of her engagement rings. Here are a few pieces that really stand out. I particular love the hexagon shaped diamond, it's very unusual.

Grey Blue Sapphire and Diamond Ring Grey Blue Sapphire with side Rose Cut Diamonds in 20/22k gold. $1500 – $2700 depending on the size of the stone.

OK readers, truth time. I have to admit I used to want an engagement ring that was very conventional. Many years ago, yes I was engaged but never married. At the time I was only aware of the conventional traditions, really expensive obscure companies and brand name stores. I'm not very proud of myself looking back on what I believed was important at the time. The ideas are counter to what I show on this site in style, budget and pure intentions. Something that there is truly no cost associated with. A 10 dollars silver ring can mean as much as a 100k ring covered in diamonds.
I had wanted a traditional solitaire prong set ring with a white diamond with a eternity wedding band; very typical and often overpriced depending on where you shop. I had also loved Nessing, whom my older brother had taught me about. He'd been a jewelry student at Savannah College of Art and Design. Nessing at the time was cost wise was out of the question, although Nessing's rings are technically amazing rings.
I still love the combination of simple engagement rings and eternity bands. But, I have since learned of more variations and options of how this is accomplished. Options that can be more unique, special and affordable. So, I started this site to hopefully help others and share the things I find.

This ring caught my attention because I have a love of orange and pink shaded sapphires. But upon farther examining, I was intrigued that the jeweler pulled into the design of the band facets. By applying these facets to the gold band and with the apricot sapphire the ring seems to have a over all twinkling about it.

With the current trends of being eco-friendly and responsible in choosing conflict-free gems, Dawes Design stands out. In following these principles, Dawes is able to produce wonderful new, elegant and modern work for reasonable prices.
Dawes Design produces a range of work from romantic and Mediterranean-inspired to clean and modern. Above is a selection of rings showing this range. Dawes shows one doesn't have to sacrifice beauty for eco friendly.
Dawes makes great use of rose cut oval and round stones in a variety of rings. I particularly love their use of the half bezel set used on emerald cut, baguette and marquise cut stones. I love that it looks like it's floating.
