The Annabelle Ring

The Princesa Ring
Breathtaking is the only way to describe the 4 carat cushion cut diamond at the center of the luxurious modern estate Princesa Ring. Once our most viewed vintage piece, the Princesa is an unforgettably classic design. The center gem is secured with chic claw prongs, and accented by two half-moon shaped diamonds.
The Reine Ring
It is named for the French word for “queen” and the vintage Reine Ring looks like it should grace the hand of a monarch or Hollywood royalty. This platinum ring showcases a pear-shaped natural emerald of jaw-dropping beauty, accented by two baguette diamonds.
