This is Lindsay's personal ring. I tried to persuade her to keep it, but she says she doesn't want to hoard jewelry, while I am still Smaug-like about sentimental pieces. She bought it maybe 10 years ago when our business was leveling up from teeny vintage earrings to selling diamond engagement rings to a dozen couples a day at our Atlantic Ave store. We were breaking into the wedding biz, and it was a heady time. We may have found this piece at Brimfield, which we would visit in a single marathon day: 4 hours driving up, tramp around the dusty/hot/rainy fields, crouch to wolf down a sandwich, and 4 hours home to Brooklyn. With it's pillowy framework (the reverse architecture!) and the big, blingy profile, she fell in love and wore this ring for years. Too many fantastic details to list here. Better in person. I'm sad to see it go.
