We’re finally coming up from air after this weekend’s royal wedding (last night, I may have had my last dream that I was besties with Meghan Markle and sat right beside her mama at St. George’s), but remembered that we still hadn’t talked about the #somethingborrowed #somethingblue she was wearing when she and Harry jumped in their vintage ride and road off to their Frogmore House reception. That stunning aquamarine cocktail ring by Asprey that belonged to Prince Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana. Went prrrreeeetty amazingly with her Stella gown, and we’re betting everyone who was watching at home now has a jewel tone crush that they’ve gotta quench. Thankfully, we know someone who has a lot of experience with colored stones and incredibly-unique rings, and Engagement Rings by Irina sponsored this post to share some of the stunners she’s been working on. Yes, there are a lot of blue-green beauties and asymmetrical designs that you’re about to fall in love with.
We’ve been touting Irina’s talents for a while now, but if you’re late to the game (we’ll forgive ya 😉), here’s the quick rundown. Engagement Rings by Irina is a custom-made fine jewelry company based in California. After working for over 8 years for many brands and famous jewelry companies, Irina set her own path of self-discovery and transformation to become a one-of-kind artist and entrepreneur. And we’re so happy she did, because if not for her hustle, we wouldn’t have access to some of the coolest rings around. She is the actual 3D designer of all the rings that you see in her store. No third parties, no middle man, nothing! And everything is custom-made from start to finish in the USA. Yaaaas.
Everything she mints is major, but we’re particularly into her asymmetrical engagement rings RN. Not only are they super pretty to look at - boasting soft, feminine jewel tones - they’re also really different and bespoke in design. Makes them really wearable and everyday ring worthy. You’ll also see ‘OOAK’ everywhere on her Etsy shop and her website, and it’s true, all things are one-of-a-kind - Irina’s only way of doing things.
You won’t see a single center stone in these rings, instead you’ll get a cluster of stones in varying shapes and colors, and even an unbalanced flanking of stones each side. Together, everything blends to create a beyond-perfect, full picture. And we kind of love that, because it goes against any outdated, antiquated ideas that engagement rings need to be solitaire in setting, with one radiant stone commanding all the attention. Meghan had a trilogy ring, remember. It’s a strong look!
Right now, Irina is offering a 60-percent-off sale on all of her ready-to-ship rings, so check them out and start shopping the new styles!
