We have a new favorite! Behold this Art Deco Platinum dome design Turquoise and Diamond Ring. We think it speaks for itself but in case you need any convincing we’ll share this small detail. It’s even more beautiful in person! If you’re in the Los Angeles area, come to our Beverly Hills showroom and take a peek. Circa 1930s, the hand engravings alone certify this piece as wearable art. We imagine you’ll be very happy with what you see. Enjoy!

Diamonds from a Girl’s Best Friend

Cushion Cut Diamond Filigree Platinum Engagement Ring

Cushion Cut Diamond Filigree Platinum Engagement Ring

We’ve all seen it. Marilyn Monroe luxuriously shuffling between tuxedoed men. Singing the ultimate Diamond anthem in the film classic Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Making history in that pink dress as she meditates on the platonic love between a woman and her Diamonds:

“A kiss on the hand may be quite continental, but diamonds are a girl’s best friend.” Sing it, girl.

Yes, “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend” is possibly the greatest song in history about Diamonds. Re-watching that iconic musical number got us thinking about best friends. Not the kind who you gossip, braid hair, or go to the movies with. We’re talking about “the one.” That person who you found and chose to spend of your life with. This person, your best friend, stands (“stiff back or stiff knees”) above the rest. The full package, the whole story.

Just like we love Marilyn Monroe and movie musicals (we’re based in Los Angeles, we can’t help but be movie buffs), we love Diamond Engagement Rings. Today we chose to feature a ring we know Marilyn would have loved. It’s our Art Deco Old Cushion Cut Diamond Filigree Platinum Engagement Ring. The all-hand engraved filigree platinum ring features a 1.71 carats old Cushion cut diamond with a filigree setting further enhanced with eight single cut diamonds and two calibrated triangle cut Sapphires. Circa 1930′s, can you believe this beauty can be worn on the hand of your BFF?

So, how about it? Best friends forever.

Happy August, dear readers! This is the month where we truly sink into summer, letting it become as endless as possible—as if the structure of the calendar year was only a suggestion. Seriously, though, if we were in Europe we’d be vacationing already—far from home, making a home elsewhere for a short while. Those are the best trips—when you feel at home in a new, unknown place. Don’t you think that when you’re with the one you love, you’re at home wherever you are? We do.

Let summer, vacation, travel and escape inspire you. You’ve already found the one you love. Now it’s time to find the time, find the words, find the answer. You already know what it will be: YES. We have the perfect ring for you. This Vintage Round Brilliant Cut Platinum Set Diamond Engagement Ring will look so beautiful on the one you love.

This piece of Art Deco jewelry is set with a 2.53 carat Round Brilliant Cut Diamond and flanked by Baguette & Single cut diamonds. The platinum setting is all hand engraved and it dates back to the 1930′s. Always timeless, our Diamond Engagement Rings will lead you closer to the future you already have in mind. Come visit our Beverly Hills showroom or contact us for more information. Summer, like your love, is endless.

May was a huge month. Still is! We had Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day and Memorial Day. How will June ever live up? Well there is definitely much that June brings—don’t forget about all the Dads out there and a big “Hello!” to Summer. Sunshine, beach, BBQ, travel, escape—summer lovin’. Yes, we’re looking forward to summer and, even though we like it hot, we also love a good cool down.

Let’s start now with this glistening Vintage Diamond and Gold Engagement Ring. Just like all of our Vintage Rings, this piece speaks to the timelessness of love. With a hand engraved hexagon 18 KT white gold setting, this ring is centered around style and grace. At first glance, you won’t be able to resist its stunning shape and refreshing sparkle. The perfect way to cool down as temperatures rise!

Visit our site or, better yet, stop by our Beverly Hills showroom for a better look. Whether you’re in Los Angeles or elsewhere, there’s always a chance for Claude Morady Estate Jewelry to bring a little shimmer to your day. Enjoy the rest of May!
