A recent trip to Paris would not have been complete without a visit to the famous Paris Antique markets. Anyone who has been will tell you the secret is to go early and bargain hard. A dawn alarm call, lots of coffee and a buttery croissant saw us heading out to these labyrinth markets where everything from a grandfather clock to a thimble is for sale. After hours of searching we found a dealer specializing in vintage jewelry. This delicate ring caught our eye, 19th century with the inscription "To my Madeleine, love Always" engraved in French on the inside of the ring. We had to have it and replicated this stunning ring using our lab-created Diamondeau® - flawless simulated diamond gems and finest 925 sterling silver. We have also created delightful earrings and a pendant inspired by the original ring. We may never know who Madeleine was but her memory lives on in this beautiful collection.
