DIAMONDs

The engagement ring is an enduring symbol of your love. Choose a handcrafted ring to express your personal style.

Diamonds are composed purely of carbon, making them the hardest gemstone in the world. A diamond's value is contingent not on only its size and weight, but on its cut, color, and clarity. At Donna Distefano, our diamonds are certified by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA).

Consult with our design experts as your ring is transformed from rendering to finished jewel.

colored gemstones

Colored gemstone engagement rings have been popular since the Renaissance. The color of the chosen stone gave meaning to the ring itself. Rubies represented a passionate heart. Sapphires were connected with faithfulness. Emeralds guaranteed perpetual love. Until the late nineteenth century, diamonds were rare and out of reach for most couples. Today, diamonds are ubiquitous, so choosing an exotic gemstone will make your engagement ring stand out from the crowd. Accented by diamonds or standing alone, our colorful options can make your most important jewelry purchase as personal as it is timeless.
