Look, we’ll be the first ones to admit that we’re all kinds of giddy when we hear about the latest engagement ring trend. We kind of live for this stuff as modern wedding purveyors. All this said, when it comes to getting engaged and starting a forever-entwined life with your love, your engagement ring shouldn’t be valued for where it sits on the ‘it’s cool’ scale. Instead, its value should be much more personal and unique. Taylor & Hart, the brand that crafts engagement and wedding jewelry inspired ever and only by you, reminded us that an engagement is so much bigger than the ring itself. And as we get closer to the holidays and official "engagement season," we definitely wanted to prioritize that point.
The heart of the brand, according to Taylor & Hart
“We believe in real love. Not the airbrushed version, but the kind of love that makes your heart and your head shout yes. We’ve made love our life’s work and we create jewelry that celebrates your story. We design, create, and listen to our customers with a ‘no limits’ mindset.”
To be completely honest, now being married for over six years (and engaged two years earlier than that), I don’t look at my engagement and wedding rings and see trends - I just see my rings, my rings. They mean everything to me, not because of the diamonds, not because of the gold, but because they were given to me by my absolute best friend in the world, the person who shares a life with me. And while places like Taylor & Hart weren’t around when my husband bought my ring, he still did everything he could to make sure my “first piece of the wedding picture” was beautiful, intentional, and as close to a physical manifestation of our love as possible.
If the wedding-to-be is inspired by the couple, shouldn’t their rings be too?
Really, when you think about it, the wedding that eventually comes to fruition is almost always the brainchild of the couple themselves. It’s their color palette, it’s their preferred date and seasonality, it’s their flair of formality - all of the things are extensions of their personalities and their relationship, it's their choice.
So, the kickoff point, where the decision to say ‘I Do’ is made, should start with the same authenticity and tailor-made mentality.
“We want to break down barriers within the industry and to continue to innovate and allow the customer to help create their own aesthetic. Our goal is for all customers to understand that customization is the way to go with an engagement and/or wedding ring because anything less feels less personal. When you bring a client’s dream ring to life, it’s the unique touches that make the ring that much more special. The custom process is all about communicating your story through a design.”
Yep, that’s ☝️ the long and short of it. Your love story isn’t trendy, it isn’t ‘of the moment’ or subject to change so frivolously: it’s timeless, enduring, and has its own aesthetic.
Set with a secret ruby, your ring will always symbolize love
And your own unique relationship
Okay, so maybe we shouldn’t give any of this away, but it’s just so sweet that we couldn’t resist. Taylor & Hart is so cognizant of the sentimentality and meaning behind your jewelry that they set each of their pieces with a small ruby inside the band (when design permits) as a little secret between you and your partner. The signature ruby serves as an intimate reminder of the love and attention that went into creating your perfect ring. Not to mention, rubies are considered the most emotionally powerful gemstones on the plant, so love and passion will always be on the radar.
