engagementringssantabarbara

My ring I saw many years earlier on a celebrity it was perfect I fell in love with it though I never got it as a engagement ring for my husband decided it was easier to buy from a display case and taking the attractive sale lady opinion of what i would like. I am not saying I do not love the ring I got from my hubby but it never suited me.

It was many years earlier that I saw my perfect engagement ring and details were a little vague what I loved was it had a large center yellow diamond surrounded by white diamonds what a beauty. Many years have passed since I got married and I always loved the award winning Gregore and Jennifer-Rabe Jewelry designs though I had never seen them design a engagement ring until this year and of course they had on their site my ring so I went to them to design one very similar mine is not as large as the one in the picture on their website though this what I could afford http://www.gregoreandjennifer-rabe.com/engagement They did amazing job and I can not thank them enough. I am glad I went with a custom ring design as I had never seen anything that I liked in any jewelry store in Santa Barbara or LA Yes their is many beautiful rings in these stores but there was always something wrong with them.

Do not get me wrong I still wear my engagement ring but now it has a friend to adorn my other hand. And guess which one catches people’s eyes I guess I feel like that celebrity many years ago.

I do wish this was the ring as I know my husband he is easy over sold by attractive young ladies yes his is bigger than the one I I bought it is a lovely ring just more the sales ladies taste or sales ticket.

Pear shaped solitaire lined with diamonds around it. Antique sides and a split woven band with bands all the way around!

I came home from a long 12 hour shift at the hospital to my man cooking dinner. I walk in to give him a kiss before I go shower and he is on one knee with the box in his hand! ❤️

Jamie’s Custom Round Brilliant


This is my RB solitaire with double claw prongs set in platinum. I originally wanted a halo and a pave band but decided I wanted to go the solitaire route. I think all settings are beautiful but ultim

It all started on a humid day in New York City. My Fiancé at the time told me he had made a reservation at a new sushi place he had heard of, (we love sushi and our go to spot is at Momoya-the only place we go) from a coworker. I thought it was a little weird since we always just go to our place around the corner from our apartment. But, I went with it anyway. I had no makeup on, didn't do my hair, was dressed in a lack tank top and a maxi skirt...my fiancé on the other hand was dressed in a very nice shirt and jeans and shoes....I asked him in the elevator why he was so dressed up compared to me and he said "because I want to be" I also asked if he was hot because I was so hot that day!!! Summer was coming early....anyway, we head out and he says let's stop by the Container Store and I oblige. Then he says okay, let's head to the restaurant and as we are heading to there we pass by our "first date kiss spot", and I tug on his arm and say "we need to kiss! We are coming up on our spot!!!"....he ignores me and instead starts calling our dogs name out and I'm like "babe, stop. The dog owner is going to think you are crazy!!" And all of sudden it was our dog running towards us!!! Little did I know because I literally said bye and told him we would be back, 20 minutes ago.....he reached over our dogs collar, retrieved the ring and proceeded to say such a beautiful sentiment...then he got down on one knee in the middle of Union Sq. and asked me to be his wife!!!!! Then we went to a very nice restaurant called One if by land, two if by Sea in the West Village. The sushi restaurant was just a cover!!!!

Custom Engagement Ring at Shira Diamonds


Pear diamonds are unique to say the least. It looks like a delicate tear drop, a shape that is exquisite and much in demand. This wonderful cut is the result of a bold combination of a traditional round cut with a dazzling brilliance and a marquise that is similar to a perfect oval.

The beautiful pear cut diamond is immensely popular among celebrities because of their uniqueness. They have been a hit as engagement rings throughout the world as well. The cut is rather uncommon in spite of its popularity and you might find yourself to be the only one in possession of a lovely tear drop diamond among your social set. The artful combination of two great cuts of diamonds makes the pear cut irresistible as it imbibes the best qualities of each cut. While you are likely to be dazzled by its sheer brilliance when all the 58 facets sparkle together (a trait of the round diamond), you are going to be pleased to observe that the pear cut diamond makes your finger look much elongated than it actually is.A pear diamond is most suitable when set in an engagement ring but they serve equally well as the centerpiece of a traditional necklace or as a pair of simple yet elegant tear drop earrings.

It is not easy to recognize the best quality pear diamond though. Remember to consult a diamond expert or look for the following, if you want to inspect the pear diamond on your own before handing over the requisite amount. The value of a pear cut diamond diminishes when one side of the rounded edge slopes more than the other. A perfect pear diamond has an evenly matched rounded edge. The lowermost point of the tear drop should remain exactly in the center of the rounded edges thus creating a perfect symmetry. The brilliance of the traditional round diamond is mimicked exactly in a pear cut. It is best not to buy pear cuts with dark areas that do not reflect light although an occasional bow tie effect may be noticed in a pear diamond as well. The length to width ratio is all important in this particular cut as well. Choose a diamond that has an average width of 1 along with a length of 1.4-1.7. While you are free to set your diamond anyway you want, diamond merchants and noted jewelers advice having an angular prong in your ring to protect the delicate tip of the pear shaped stone. A plain solitaire is great for showing off the unique cut of a pear diamond especially when it served as an engagement ring. The six prongs help to protect the pear diamond admirably here. You are also welcome to use smaller pear diamond accents. You might also go in for a diamond bezel, if protecting your expensive diamond is your primary concern. A bright, dazzling halo with a pear diamond as the center piece and several diamond accents should serve you well, if you happen to like glamorous settings. We sell a variety of certified and non-certified loose diamonds. Each diamond in our inventory is conflict free and personally hand-picked and examined by our diamond expert. Complete information is available on every single diamond we sell. With our wholesale diamonds in store we have access to a very large inventory around the world.
