INTRODUCING MEN'S ENGAGEMENT RING COLLECTION


I am no stranger to making jewelry for men. My work was always meant to be worn by all. Myself, a fan of men's garments, I always tried to fill in the fashion gap between genders. Let's be honest, only recently fashion designers started paying attention to "masculine" fashion and creative, innovative, fashion conscious men or men with a strong sense of style do not have to suffer for a lack of wardrobe and accessory choice anymore.


In my experience, men tend to choose less embellished jewelry, pieces that are perceived as simple and understated. By creating men's engagement ring* collection, I portrayed gold and precious stones in a masculine way. The designs (except the ring I custom made for Paul) are focused on the metal itself, its texture, luster, strength, and durability. The gemstones are incorporated to transform a particular ring into a celebratory piece, but without being overly flashy. Rings in this collection are designed and meant to be worn every day, as a powerful representation of commitment and love.

VENA AMORIS

Although the earliest finger rings are from Ancient Egypt, the history of engagement rings dates back to Ancient Rome. In many countries, engagement rings are worn on the fourth finger of the left hand. This custom also is believed to have originated in Ancient Rome. It was believed that this finger contained the vena amoris, the “love vein” that leads to the heart. (The latin term vena amoris was popularized hundreds of years later by the ecclesiastical lawyer Henry Swinburne in A treatise of Spousals, or Matrimonial Contracts in 1686, in which he references Roman thinkers Apion and Aulus Gallius.) Ancient Roman brides-to-be would receive two engagement rings, one in gold and one in iron. The gold ring was to wear in public, and the iron ring was for around the house.

CHELSEA ENGAGEMENT RING - NOW IN BLACK & WHITE

If you have browsed our website before, you have probably seen Chelsea's Engagement Ring in rose gold and white diamond combination. This metal and diamond combo was chosen by our client, Chelsea, as she preferred the pink color of gold next to her skin and she desired white diamond to give the ring the timeless/classic look. We know you like to customize your pieces (that's why you are on our website reading this post ;o), so Jelena decided to give the ring a more dramatic - black and white "makeover", which is also gives the design more urban, edgy look and provides a great example how same style of the ring can look many different ways.

NEW ROSE GOLD WEDDING RING AND ENGAGEMENT RING DESIGNS - STEVEN AND NADIYA'S RINGS

When Steven came to meet with Jelena to discuss the engagement ring, he knew he liked hand carving, but was not sure of the pattern that Nadiya, his future fiancée, would like. After Jelena asked Steven to list several of Nadiya's favorite things/hobbies to learn more about her and her taste,without hesitation  Steven said: "Red Tailed Hawk, she loves Red Tailed Hawk!" Immediately and without a doubt, this magestic bird's feather became the source inspiration for hand carving design of Nadiya's engagement ring.
The engagement ring design also features white gold four prong Jelena Behrend Studio setting. Wide white gold prongs are incorporated in the design to let the shine through to the round cut brilliant diamond and serve as a secure casing of  the center stone.
The  rose gold wedding band set was created to compliment the engagement ring and rose gold was used for the bands as well, in order to create a monochromatic look.
