Valentine’s Day is about love, the heart, and romance. With traditional symbols like heart outlines, and cupid wings. Everyone remembers the days when greeting cards and chocolates were exchanged in the school room in our younger days, but this holiday why not celebrate in a similar by slightly more grown up way.
Not only is pink, along with red, the official color of Valentine’s Day, but it is also one of the hottest color of diamonds in demand. Put on the map in 2002 by Jennifer Lopez and her stunning 6.2 carat pink diamond engagement ring from Ben Affleck, the colorful gems have increasingly been used for engagement rings ever since.
At Verragio, since all engagement rings are made to order, it would be easy to custom design a three stone engagement ring using pink diamonds for the sides. The Couture 0397, for example, features one larger Round diamond in the center, flanked by two smaller round cut diamonds that would look pretty in pink, and smaller Round cut diamonds adorning the shank.
However, if a solitaire style with more subtle flashes of pink is more your style, there is the Paradiso 3074, which boasts a Round cut center diamond, suspended above a shank adorned with smaller round cut diamonds set into the band, with the signature scrolling design underneath. It is that scrolling however, that holds smaller round diamond bezels, perfect to be swapped out with round pink diamonds to add just a tease of pink.
If you’re bride-to-be is a die-hard romantic though, why not go all the way and really give her your heart. The Venetian 5010P from Verragio features rounds cut diamonds that adorn the shank halfway around the shank and the delicate lace detail under the shank, inspired by antique romanticism, is the perfect look for the holiday of love. And by adding an extra prong, the center, which ordinarily fits a Princess cut diamond, can accommodate a rare and whimsical Heart Shaped diamond that she will never forget.
But however you choose to celebrate this February 14th, do it in style, good faith, and try to have a little fun. If a diamond engagement ring is not yet in your cards, Mrs. Field’s offers will be offering a special heart shaped cookie, and pizza maker Papa John’s will be offering a heart shaped pizza for the second year in a row so you can still give them their heart, and in the most delicious way possible.
