As if the engagement rings Vera Wang designed in collaboration with Zales weren't enough, the iconic wedding dress designer is expanding her bridal empire to include a seven-piece couture-quality collection also called Vera Wang LOVE.
Priced between $24,000 and $47,000, Wang's LOVE collection is designed to inspire with round, emerald and princess-cut center stones weighing in at more than 2 carats. Several of the pieces feature split-shank settings dotted with pavé diamonds. Each ring can be set in white gold, yellow gold, or rose gold, and features the designer's signature hidden sapphire stone on the band's interior.
"When I design a new collection I always think about how the details and quality of what we create can resonate with brides all over the world," explains the designer. "I draw inspiration from the experiences in my own life that I feel every bride can relate to. What makes the entire design process complete is what it says about a woman, that to me is what design is really about."
Vera Wang isn't the only designer to expand her bridal reach into fine jewelry design-Monique Lhuillier collaborated with Blue Nile to create a 23-piece engagement ring collection last fall.
