Beholden • East to West Heirloom Marquis 

Dan came to us with a whopping 4 plus carat Diamond Marquis and an idea for the sideways setting as well as some colorful stacking bands. We decided to create a delicate East/West prong setting for the spectacular Marqui, and the bands, made to nest neatly alongside it, have 11 pavé Blue Sapphires and Emeralds in each all made in warm Yellow gold. 

So my boyfriend did a thing.

My boyfriend of over 2 years sent me a game over skype. He said he wants to try and make Pokemon games since I play them so much. I opened it up and was super excited.


It seemed really well done and was super ready to start on my adventure!


He left a lot of cute notes and tips around town.


He remembered my favorite Kanto starter.<3


I was surprised it ran pretty well. I went on my journey and leveled up my Pokemon!


He showed me support and encouragement through a ton of NPC dialogue.


Then as im ending the game I come across this.




Apparently the black community at large frowns on this grown woman’s decision to ask her man to be her husband and I am so confused. These are the same people asking about the “state of black marriage/relationships” and lamenting about the supposed lack thereof. 

I can’t think of a smaller thing for people to be stressed out over. She wants to get married. She got a ring. She proposed. The world continues to turn.


Making It Lovely • Hazeline

The lovely ladies of Bona Drag take Bridal to the next level with their Ceremony Collection and not without fanfare.  Make it Lovely picked up their gorgeous photo of our Hazeline Solitaire Engagement Ring with stacking Crescent Commitment bands calling out that they arepieces that are feminine without being fussy”.
