Love these Engagement Rings by Hannah Clark in NYC

Beautiful rings from Hannah Clark. Her shop is located in Manhattan's East Village.

Last weekend, my husband and I were wandering around the East Village and quite by chance we came across Hannah Clark’s shop. Glancing through the windows and seeing the lovely jewelry and charming ambiance, we couldn’t help but take a look inside. All of her jewelry was perfection, but I particularly liked the Clay 6-prong ring. He rings all had a character and texture to them that I have not really seen elsewhere.

Hannah uses a number of different techniques when crafting her jewelry, some ancient and traditional, some completely improvisational. She describes her work as a sort of mini-sculpture as she carves, molds and shapes wax and other materials to make the original model. After that she makes a mold and casts the final pieces in various metals. She often works with antique diamonds and you can tell. Her stones really have a lovely depth and color to them. She also works with her clients to help them select the perfect stone for their special rings.

You can check out her blog or website or, better yet, check out her store at 60 E. 4th St. New York, NY. She has many beautiful pieces to see other than her amazing engagement and wedding rings. Her email is info@hannah-clark.com.

An untraditional wedding ring – perfect for a secret wedding

The Fusion Ring by Georg Jensen. Photo from Horton London.

I married my husband just over a year ago. We had been together for years, and by years I mean 13 to be exact. We had been together for so long that people actually stopped even asking us when we were going to get married. So when we finally decided to tie the knot, imagine everyone’s surprise…especially since we didn’t tell anyone until after it had already happened.

I love weddings, the invitations, dresses, colors, cake, decorations. Only one problem, I am terrified of being the center of attention. The thought of all eyes on me, well the terror is indescribable! So, city hall wedding it was. Since we didn’t tell anyone our marriage plans, I didn’t want an engagement ring, obviously some questions would arise if I suddenly started wearing one. However, I also didn’t want a plain and simple wedding ring. I wanted “the wedding ring”, something with some bling to it, something a little different. Enter the Fusion Ring by Georg Jensen. I had been looking at this ring for years, actually my husband had pointed it out to me. Every time I walked past the Georg Jensen store in SoHo I would stop in and stare at it, like a stalker with a sick obsession.

What I love about this ring are the endless possibilities. It comes in rose, yellow and white gold with either white or black diamonds. The ring comes apart and you can mix and match all the interchangeable pieces, and really create a ring that is perfect for you. You can stack as many pieces as you can fit on your finger. I decided on three rings of white gold with white diamonds, but am now in love with the white gold center piece with black diamonds, maybe for my birthday! My husband has a matching ring, two plain bands of white gold.

George Jensen also has engagement rings and other lovely jewelry. Below are some more photos from their site.
