i'm picky when it comes to certain things....furniture, music, JEWELRY. so when it came time for the bf and i to find an engagement ring, i had very particular thoughts on the matter. ever since we've been engaged i've been hunting for a cocktail ring, something unconventional with a vintage feel. i've never been a big fan of the classic diamond solitaire so often found on many females hands. diamonds really aren't my thing. i prefer colored stones and more uniqueness.
this baby popped up on my fantasy furniture/art/jewelry website, 1stdibs. everything tends to be WAY out of my price range but it's a great location to dream and expand your tastes. not only was this one of a kind rings in our range but it also was in our backyard! most items advertised on this site come from new york, chicago and LA.
it is signed Duney....aka henry dunay and is circa 1970. i like his story and i LOVE his work. so excited to find something that is SO me and a piece of jewelry i will wear the rest of my life.
