Welcome to The Bridal Circle blog.
It’s true that the holidays generally, in addition to being merry and bright, bring with them a barrage of romantic proposals and subsequent engagements… which, naturally, are sealed with a fine jeweled ring of magnificent quality. Whether there’s a diamond on your all-important ring finger or not, we thought a little eye candy couldn’t hurt. So, this holiday season we’re filling your inbox with all that sparkles- the unique, the exquisite, the sophisticated. Every woman has her own style, and Van Cleef & Arpels is sure to have stunning styles that will strike your fashionable fancy.
Built on a love story from it’s very inception, the Van Cleef & Arpels Maison was first birthed out of the love shared by Alfred Van Cleef and the winsome Estelle Arpels in 1895. Since then, the engagement ring has been a dazzling part of the Maison’s High Jewelry offering. Platinum options abound with several styles of bands and settings. Couture solitaires are still the classic dream-ring for many brides-to-be, but other designs featuring diamonds along the band give a slight variation on the theme, creating a more brilliant sparkle when the light hits the band. Twtisting band designs, braided metalwork and perlée bands keep the look simple, with a hint of originality.
In addition to the classic platinum popular for both engagement rings and wedding bands, Van Cleef & Arpels offers a romantic pink gold band option. Crafted with a lovely perlée band in addition to a smooth platinum selection, the pink gold collection is ladylike and demure. Perfect for a bride-to-be who isn’t afraid to let her femininity outshine her sense of tradition.
After viewing the dainty diamonds below, we’re sure you’ll update your Christmas wishlist. Composed of the finest platinum, golds and gems available in pure styles beautifully realized, an engagement ring from Van Cleef & Arpels embodies the most exquisite material qualities, a sense of nostalgia and carries with it an age-old love. Perhaps it’s time to send Santa Baby a little reminder so he doesn’t forget that one little thing— a Van Cleef & Arpels engagement ring.
