In our age of knowledge and speedy interface, it is easy to forget how much we are 

So it is with jewels; I remind myself that indeed these precious pieces of stone were once implanted in rock in soil. 

This vintage 1930s platinum engagement ring is inspiring in SO many ways. 

Not only does it have a amazing BROWN DIAMOND (my favorite!) it also has a really beautiful artistic composition due to the contrast of the prong set center stone with the linear platinum whiteness of the straight diamonds on either side.

To me, this piece serves as a metaphor and a reminder that in this age of speedy and airy information there is still room to appreciate and honor the beauty of the earth. 

In doing so, let us make a conscious effort to use what is already available ON this earth as to not mine our precious resources IN it. So let's love what we have, and celebrate post-comsumer industries! Happy EARTH MONTH!
