When a diamond ring is stuffed with bold styles and eccentric designs, you’d think it would end up on the wrong side of sophisticated fashion. Not A. Jaffe. Its rings twist or bend and feature big, bold stones with an army of brilliant cuts around or behind the main stones. It’s opulent and lavish that, at first glance, the loud extravagant operatic lifestyles of the nineteenth century come to mind. Yet the A. Jaffe rings are far from being boastful; they exude order and painstaking precision amidst a seemingly sumptuous flair of gemstones. The rose and white golds flow smoothly, while the brilliant-cut diamonds embrace the center stone with a calm resolve like the clarinet to an oboe. It’s lavish, yes, but it’s also classic in its timeless elegance.
A. Jaffe is available at Shreve & Co. in Palo Alto, California.
