Vous sentez-vous français aujourd’hui? Since we’re talking about a ring made by a very famous French jewelry house, we thought we’d throw a little French in to start things off. So if you are, in fact, feeling a little French today and possibly in love, maybe this Van Cleef & Arpels rose gold band is for you. Here’s a little more French for you: Toujours. It means always. And isn’t that what a wedding ring is all about?
What we love about it: It’s French! Van Cleef & Arpels, founded in Paris by a young man and his brother-in-law, both coming from jewelry business families, is an iconic jeweler of both yesterday and today. Women the likes of the Duchess of Windsor, Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor were big fans. We are too.
The Deets: The ring is made from 18kt rose gold, is marked inside as such and also is hallmarked VCA and is a numbered piece. It’s currently a size US 4 and weighs in at 4.2 dwt. You could size it, but we would suggest leaving it intact for the hallmarks and authenticity.
La vie est un sommeil, l’amour en est la rêve. We’ll let you look that one up. 🙂
