Joe’s Special Box Luxury Edition – Volume 18

Baubles, Bling and A Collector’s Things

Most traditional engagement rings feature one center stone – a singular focal point.  From year to year, generation to generation, the trends evolve and change.  Popular styles are often influenced by celebrities, movie stars and royalty.  In the 1960’s, Mia Farrow inspired an entire generation to fall in love with pear-shaped diamonds.  The asscher diamond rose to fame with a little help from Elizabeth Taylor.  The 1980’s were all about the marquise cut and the 2000’s were positively dripping with princess cut sparklers.  All of these had one thing in common… one center stone.

All of that changed in 2001, when DeBeers launched an advertising campaign that took the diamond ring market by storm.  What was this ground-breaking phenomenon, you ask?  It was a simple three-stone ring.  The marketing masterminds at DeBeers dubbed the “Past, Present and Future” ring.  The stone on the left was for the past, the stone on the right was for the present and the stone in the center was for the future.  Adding this touch of romanticism to an already incredibly sentimental engagement ring was sheer genius.  

We’ve covered engagement rings with a featured center stone and the Past, Present and Future three-stone ring.  Hmmm… seems like we may have skipped something in between.  We skipped from one to three.  What about two-stone rings?  Admittedly, it’s a bit more of a unique look…  but two-stone rings have actually been around since the days of Napoleon and Josephine.  Aptly christened the “Toi et Moi”, the two-stone ring is designed for “you and me”. 

This antique beauty is a bit of luxury from the Edwardian era.  Made entirely of platinum, this turn-of-the-century ring showcases a perfectly matched pair of European Cut diamonds.   With a combined weight of 2.20 carats, these dazzlers are set side by side within the vintage mounting.  Decorated with delicate hand-pierced designs, tiny milgrain beading and platinum scrolls – this two-stone ring is perfection.  Thirty-six supplementary diamonds accent every nook and cranny.  These gems offer an additional .30 carat of bling.  An ideal choice for a non-traditional engagement ring, this two-stone beauty is the latest bit of luxury from Joe’s Special Box.  Make it yours for just $11,800.00.
