Jewel of the day: J. Hannah Diamond Demi Signet Ring
There was a time when a diamond pinky ring was pretty much either the height of tacky or cool – depending on who was wearing it where and when. Basically, a little to “The Godfather” for some people.
But this ring reminds me of the Victorian gypsy rings with channel set stones, like this diamond. It’s a sleek, elegant way to revive an old style that could use an image makeover. By J. Hannah, it features a rose cut diamond in a choice of metals (shown here in yellow gold) and sells for USD$995.
The designer notes, “The Demi Signet, a smaller, delicate counterpart to J. Hannah’s signature Signet ring. At about half the size of the original Signet, the Demi is designed for pinky fingers, a re-envisioning of classic signet rings — it’s the ring your grandfather wore, with a modern, feminine sensibility. The updated size option is designed for versatility: small enough to be integrated easily into a your regular lineup but distinct enough to make a statement when worn alone.
Solid 14k Gold signet set with a sparkling Rose Cut White Diamond. Available in 14k Yellow, White or Rose Gold. Face measures 5mm x 5mm.”
