Christmas in July, Doyle & Doyle Style


There’s nothing like last week’s 100% humidity in New York to make us think twice about the merits of Christmas in July. Though we’re staunchly opposed to yuletide-themed summer sale madness, we’re nevertheless comforting ourselves in front of the arctic blast of our AC while day-dreaming of a wintertime wedding, inspired by our Engagement Ring of the Week.

Onyx and Diamond Vintage Ring from Doyle & Doyle

With a Christmas date inscribed on the platinum band and the European cut diamond framed in a bold geometric design of black onyx, this vintage ring represents the perfect balance of sweet and bold. To complement this beautiful piece we’ve dreamed up a winter wedding style that is a healthy dose of sweet with equal parts bold and completely sans schmaltz.
