#idazzledesires: Erika Winters Thea Engagement Ring

This isn’t just the holiday season–it’s also engagement season. I have heard that almost a third of annual proposals happen between Thanksgiving and New Years Day. I guess this is when promises and wishes really do come true. If you’re dreaming of a “white Christmas,” or if your own ring needs a little holiday overhaul, you need to get acquainted with my friend Erika Winters.

I wrote about Erika earlier this year when she launched her new engagement ring collection. Each incredibly thoughtful ring is christened with a woman’s name, and I immediately fell for her Thea design. It is the ring that Erika chose to set her own cherished Old European Cut into and wear everyday. It’s my #idazzledesires for today (and every day!). Erika gave me her thoughts on Thea, and her wish for the season…

“My Thea Halo (aka #TeamThea) engagement ring is especially meaningful to me, as it was one of the first designs that I produced for the launch of my bridal collection earlier this year. I knew I wanted to wear one of my designs, so I set one of my own old European cut diamonds into Thea, and the result was magic. The diamond is my absolute favorite old European cut that I cherry-picked years ago. Thea remains one of my favorites, because it’s not a traditional engagement ring, and because everyone sees something different in the design. Some see a compass, while others see the sun. Thea was actually inspired by the sun and a play on the word “sun.” My mother’s Korean name is Pok Sun, and her favorite flower is the sunflower. So I always see my mother in this ring.

It’s been one year since I started development on my first collection, so one of my own #idazzledesires for this season is to stay the course–using Thea as my compass–and to grow my collection, starting with my wedding bands that just went into production! I wish everyone much health, peace, and happiness this holiday season.”
