Buccellati’s signature diamond, yellow and white gold bands with feminine lacy cut-out patterns were not designed to be engagement rings, but I know plenty of girls who wear them on the third finger of their left hand. And I know lots of single ladies who dream of doing so. Beth Bernstein author of My Charmed Life: Rocky Romances, Precious Family Connections and Searching for a Band of Gold devotes a whole chapter in her delightful memoir to a Buccellati band. Without spoiling the adventure, she does end up with the jewel and a happy ending as unique as the ring itself.
