March is upon us, which means spring is right around the corner, and we’re excited to look back to our February vintage jewelry Instagram favorites. February saw two big jewelry events, Valentine’s Day and the Oscars, which meant a month full of sweet hearts and lots of diamonds. Our top Instagram post by far was the […]
Every week, we get in new vintage and antique diamond rings – here are some of our favorite new arrivals! Do you sense a theme? We’ve gotten a lot of requests for diamonds set in gold, and we aim to please. We’re in love with the way the golden glimmer plays off the fiery old […]
Our Engagement Ring of the Week is a shooting star of sparkling, golden loveliness! Dating to 1895 and with French import hallmarks, the antique engagement ring features an elongated Old Mine cut diamond set in a 18k gold frame of smaller Old Mine and rose cut diamonds. It’s hard to capture in photos, but these diamonds shimmer and dance in even the slightest bit of light. Each one was skillfully cut by hand and has a unique character all its own.
For our holiday Engagement Ring of the Week, we couldn’t resist this brand new arrival. It’s a French Belle Epoque dinner ring dating to 1900, centering a glittering old Mine cushion cut diamond and fashioned in platinum-topped gold. Asymmetrical curls of rose cut stones create a swirling sense of movement and its long shape beautifully flatters the hand. This beauty is so new to our collection that I literally snatched it from the new inventory tray. It’s item # 101547R and you can see it sparkling in our West 13th Street store, but it’s not yet on the website. Call (212) 677-9991 or email email@example.com for more information.

She was Lily Elsie, a popular English stage star, best known for her role in 1907’s musical comedy, “The Merry Widow.” Lily began her career […]
If there is one constant in the rich tradition and styles of wedding bands throughout the course of history, it is that they have constantly changed. From the earliest rings made by the ancient Egyptians of rushes and reeds, twisted into circles to symbolize eternity, to the iron betrothal rings of the ancient Romans, to […]

As the sons of publishing scion Peter M. Brant and supermodel Stephanie Seymour, Peter II and […]
