It's official: petites are so in. These designs were largely inspired by clients with smaller hands who wanted all of the signature details of a Dana Walden design, in a ring that was more proportionate to their hands. But after a wild year, more and more couples appear to be seeking a new symbol of love: subtle and artful representations that are packed full of character and distinctive details without being too "showy." This new line of sapphire petite engagement rings all feature super-saturated gemstones, handpicked by Dana and Rad themselves.
In the process we created a new kind of luxe engagement ring that's a sign of the times, evocative of hope without being ostentatious and, of course, ecofriendly and ethically made with responsibly-sourced materials.
Each ring is designed around an exquisite petite sapphire & with our signature 'ZIA' conflict-free diamond band. Dana designed this series especially for clients that are seeking:
- Intensely-hued, responsibly-sourced sapphires
- Conflict-free diamonds
- Ultra-thin bands
- Delicate accents
Purple Alessandra (shown in the center of the stack pictured above) was the first in the series and features a gorgeous 0.61 carat sapphire glimmers with hues of violet, fuchsia, and mulberry.
All rings were fashioned in 14k yellow gold and pavéd with tiny diamonds, each set by hand in a mix of delicate bezels and prongs. Dana added NSEW compass prongs to cradle and emphasize the center stone.
Each ring is one of a kind.
