thrift shops

Thrift shops can be a great resource for finding one-of-a-kind rings. Browsing through racks of pre-loved jewelry can unearth hidden gems brimming with character and history that can inspire your design.

traditional family heirlooms

There's something undeniably special about incorporating family heirlooms into your own jewelry collection. Whether it's your grandmother's timeless diamond ring or your aunt's Art Deco-inspired band, heirloom pieces carry with them a rich legacy and sentimental value. Consider repurposing or resetting heirloom stones to create a ring that honors your family's legacy and tradition while adding a modern twist.

celebrity styles

Find inspiration in the glamour of Hollywood, where movies and celebrity engagements serve as beacons of style. From Audrey Hepburn's timeless elegance to the opulence of Beyoncé and Blake Lively, let celebrity styles guide your journey. Whether you are drawn to vintage charm or modern extravagance, drawing inspiration from the world of celebrities can refine your preferences and define your style.
