The other day, we posted an Instagram exclusive on the best engagement rings for #SweaterWeather. The post ended up being more popular than we thought it would be, but it turns out that a lot of folks want their wedding and engagement jewelry to be just as comfortable and practical as it is distinctive and beautiful.
Honestly, it is super-easy to get caught up in what you think your engagement ring should look like. But it's not 'til you get the ring on that you realize there are certain features that lend themselves to being a little impractical. For example, a ring with some height could tear through plastic or latex gloves, make it difficult to wear winter gloves, and snag on sweaters and other fabrics.
If these are concerns for you, as they are with some of our clients in the healthcare field (among others), you might go for a low-profile, "smooth" rings that, in effect, provides maximum comfort.
And guess what; with Dana Walden low-profile rings or engagement bands, you won't have to compromise sparkle or distinctive design for practical comfort. Have a look at a few of our favorite #SweatherWeather-friendly engagement rings.
Athena is a unique sapphire treasure, handcrafted in 14k yellow gold with the tiniest round, princess cut diamond details. All gemstones were responsibly sourced and conflict free, handpicked by Dana and Rad themselves. The star of this creation is a clear champagne sapphire that is perfect for a socially-conscious bride. Athena shimmers with hints of nude, apricot, and gold. We love that her color changes depending on the lighting.
Our Athena ring was also named a beautiful choice for Fall proposals, as the sculptural halo resembles a fall leaf. The detailed etchings are reminiscent of the richness and abundance of the season.
Athena is READY TO SHIP NOW in Size 6. You can have it at your door "as is" in 2-3 days. If you need Athena resized, please add 7 days. Resizing is free. Athena is priced at $4100. SHOP HERE.
Inspired by the popular Allie emerald band, Dana and Rad sought to design a full line of diamond engagement bands that offered a similar ease-of-wear. They did just that, and fast forward to a few months later, the bands have gained popularity as luxe wedding bands for dramatic bridal-set looks and anniversary bands as well!
Shareen is a substantial 5mm diamond band with a lot of presence and sparkle. She features two rows of staggered baguettes (0.75 ctw), set entirely by hand in luxurious 14k yellow gold. Her double row of dazzling step-cut diamonds were designed to create the illusion of stacking bands, without the fuss of wearing two separate rings. Shareen is gorgeous when paired with your favorite DW engagement solitaire, but we love her just as much when worn solo.
The smooth profile and setting ensure wearing winter gloves is easy and your sparkler won't snag on sweaters or fabric this season. Shareen is priced at $3400. SHOP HERE.
