When I was a little girl, my stoic, well read, and world traveler (read: completely credible) grandmother told me “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend” and I’ve never forgotten her wise words. When I saw the rings from Love Affair Diamonds, they reminded me of the style and quality of jewelry my grandmother would wear- she didn’t skimp on her accessories and she appreciated diamonds like no other woman I’ve met in my life.
Love Affair Diamonds does a few unique things that will catch your attention: they restore one-of-a-kind heirlooms, they design pieces that are a modern take on classic vintage elements, and they’ve just launched their “Try Before You Buy” program. We’re in love and you’re sure to be too!
Love Affair Diamonds’ most popular halo style-the Bella halo setting in platinum and rose gold is pretty gorgeous!
One of the most unique things about Love Affair Diamonds is their revolutionary “Try Before You Buy” policy which launched June 1, 2015. Founder Erica created this one of a kind program in collaboration with jewelry designer and artist Caysie van Bebber, allowing brides and grooms peace of mind when choosing a wedding ring that will last a lifetime. Never before has an opportunity like this existed. LAD’s “TBYB” program is simple, convenient and straightforward. Interested parties pay a refundable deposit and like that, they are shipped a sample ring(s) for consideration. A pre-authorization of the replacement cost of the setting and a basic shipping charge is put on the individual’s credit card. They return the ring(s) within three days from the receipt date and the replacement cost is refunded, less the shipping charge. The shipping charge is waived with a setting order.
This is the Chloe solitaire setting in 18k yellow gold– we’re swooning over the intricate design
This is a vintage reproduction antique cushion cut diamond and calibre cut sapphire ring and it’s pure luxury
Julia and Sophie are the two most popular solitaire settings
(Lisette halo setting in 18k yellow gold and platinum, paired with the Alexandria french cut diamond eternity band in 18k gold)
The bands from Love Affair Diamonds are spectacular; yellow gold diamond eternity bands and platinum diamond eternity bands can accompany a more traditional engagement ring or stand on their own just fine
Of course Love Affair Diamonds has all kinds of jewelry that would be perfect for your wedding. These are some of our faves:
Love Affair Diamonds also works with loose diamonds like this beauty, a 1.74ct Old European Cut Diamond
Many of the pieces are one-of-a-kind so once they’re sold, they’re gone for good, but luckily Love Affair Diamonds owner and founder Erica Derout is obsessed with her work and she is constantly acquiring new pieces. Some are disassembled and made into new designs and some maintain their original design.
