Hard Rock

  |   By Nicole Keen

A beautiful ring from JDJ Jewellery.

This week I had the chance to try this gorgeous ring on for size, and I almost didn’t give it back! It fit me perfectly, and it felt so good on my finger that once I got chatting with its super-talented creator, jeweller John de Jong, I completely forgot I had it on. I do believe this is exactly how you should feel in your engagement bling.


Hard Rock

Over champers and chocolate-covered strawberries John and I discussed his incredible new collection, featuring several varieties of hard stone (and diamonds, of course), as well as his inspiration, which happens to be the art and architecture he has experienced during his world travels. This particular ring reflects his time spent in Florence, Italy many years ago. By the way, Florence is definitely on my radar as a haute honeymoon destination! John also revealed some top-secret sketches of his upcoming creations, and let me just tell you they are equally as desirable as this ring. Here's a hint: think colourful stones and statement necklaces for your big-day jewels. Speaking of which, what sort of finishing touches are you wearing with your gown? I'd love to hear!
