    Vintage Velvet Ring Boxes from The Mrs Box!

    Grey-Likes-Weddingsvintage velvet ring boxvelvet ring boxthe mrs box


    We are SO WONDERFULLY ECSTATIC about the debut of the delicious little velvet ring boxes you see above, lovingly entitled... THE MRS BOX! Our fabulous friends at Grey Likes Weddings asked us to be a part of their first photo shoot to debut The Mrs Box this week, and how could we possibly say no?! These little ring boxes are made from vintage French velvet in just about every color you could possibly imagine, and go just perfectly with our vintage and vintage-inspired engagement rings. We think the only problem is deciding which color to order - we need them ALL!!!


    Lady Grey has been creating these beautiful heirloom ring boxes for the last three years, and we are SO thrilled that they are finally ready to be shared with the world! We feel so wonderfully blessed to be even a small part of this amazing, colorful project. With styling by Lady Grey herself, photography by Jose Villa & Joel Serrato, flowers by Type A Society, and artwork from The Dancing Pine, there was so much creative genius in the room during the photo shoot that we were about ready to burst!! SO many thanks to Grey Likes Weddings for including us in this fabulous project (and of course, there will be more photos to come). Ladies and gents, you know you need one (or five) for your vintage engagement and cocktail rings... head over to to sign up for the pre-sale launch, and DON'T FORGET to follow @The_Mrs_Box on Instagram for updates!

    We're SO ECSTATIC that a piece of T&H jewelry was worn by KESHA at the MTV Video Music Awards last night! The bracelet, a beautiful platinum and diamond piece from the Art Deco era (approx. 1915-1935) looks AMAZING with her dress, which is a total slam dunk in the vintage-meets-modern category! To top it all off, Kesha's rainbow colored locks completely stole the show on the red carpet. You go girl!!

    New Engagement Rings August 19

    Our favorite vintage engagement rings are...

    vintage pearl cocktail ring Hermitage is an incredibly unique antique Victorian cocktail rings featuring pearls, green demantoids, and diamonds.


    Hermitage is an incredible Victorian era 14k yellow gold ring composed of four natural pearls with a beautiful creamy and slightly rose colored hue gauged at 4mm each. These beautiful pearls are surrounded by twenty-eight electric green demantoid garnets and framed by a sparkling halo of twenty-four Old European Cut diamonds totaling about 1.00ct. Consider the amazing task the original jeweler accomplished by sourcing these rare gems; the demantoids were most likely from the mountain rivers of Russia, the natural pearls from the waters of Japan, and the diamonds from India. This ring is a truly special addition to our collection!

    vintage art deco diamond emerald engagement ring Skyline is a completely stunning Art Deco diamond and emerald engagement ring.


    Skyline is a stunning platinum set Art Deco engagement ring centering a 1.01ct EGL certified Emerald Cut diamond graded H color and VS1 clarity. Skyline's sleek, geometric design is a wonderful characteristic of the Art Deco period. This pretty ring is further decorated with triangular shoulders lined with twenty natural, bright Calibre Cut emeralds totaling approximately 0.15ct and twenty-four Single Cut diamonds totaling about 0.55ct.

    For the Love of Peridot

    peridot august birthstonevintage peridot earringsvintage peridot and diamond ring

    Can you believe August is half over already? Summer is just flying by! This month we can't help but stare at the gorgeous August birthstone and ideal summer stone, PERIDOT!


    Peridot is a very old gemstone that was first mined by Ancient Egyptians on the island in the Red Sea called Topazios (today known as St. John or Zabargard), during the 2nd Millennium B.C.. Peridots are one of the only gemstones that come in exactly ONE distinct color. Egyptians called this beautiful yellow-green stone "the gem of the sun," believing that when set in gold, peridot would protect its owner from nightmares.


    Peridot is often confused with topaz and emerald. Legend has it that Cleopatra's favorite gem was peridot, and that most of her so-called collection of emeralds were actually peridot!‚Ä謆Peridot is typically found in volcanic rock, but has also been discovered in pallasite meteorites. Today, Peridot is treasured in Hawaii as the goddess Pele's tears, though most peridot sold in Hawaii is mined in the US on the San Carlos Reservation in Arizona.


    Our favorite peridot pieces from the Trumpet & Horn collection are a gorgeous pair of antique style peridot earrings and the beautiful Strasburg peridot and diamond ring, shown above! We love this stone dearly and hope to add more to our collection soon!
