Tiffany and Cartier.... Just Because

When Corporate Sites Won't Let me PIN, I Turn to My Blog

I was on the Tiffany site earlier today, for one reason - I wanted to grab a few of my favorite Tiffany Rings and add them to my "Jewelry" board on Pinterest -- by the way, you should follow me on --> Pinterest here.

The jewelry I love, I have always loved. My taste, or style, rarely changes, which is a good thing, because if you want a $15,000 ring, at least you know you'll never grow tired of it. I mean you might not get it, but you won't grow tired of it. The rings vary in price, the cheapest is the Cartier Trinity (no diamonds), about $2000.00, the 5 band Etoile by Tiffany is $15K and the MOST expensive is the last ring, Cartier Trinity with all three bands encrusted with pave diamonds, approximately $70K.

Here they are, my favorites diamond rings from Tiffany:

Tiffany Etoile 5 Row Pave Diamond Ring
This has been my favorite ring for a minimum of 10 years
Tiffany Victoria Ring - Diamond Band
I like this ring because it is timeless
Cartier, I've always loved just one Cartier ring, but it is available in three different versions. 

The Cartier Trinity Ring:

Basic Cartier Trinity Ring 
In 18K yellow, rose and white gold

Cartier Trinity Ring with one band of pave diamonds
In 18K yellow, rose and white gold - but the white gold is encrusted with diamonds 
*And, I believe this is my favorite one of them all

Cartier Trinity Ring with all bands with pave diamonds
Yellow, rose and white gold (or maybe platinum) and the bands embellished with white, pink and yellow diamonds

I tried on the this last ring when I was in Las Vegas a few years back. I walked into the Cartier Store and, unlike the Chicago store (where they can be a bit snooty), the gentleman in the Vegas store saw my gazing, walked over to me, opened the case and said, "try it on." I refused at first, he insisted and put the ring in my hand.  At that point, how could I not put this lovely piece of craftsmanship on my pretty little finger? 

It must be good to be rich! 

Which ring do you like best?
