Van Cleef & Arpels Narcisse Diamond Ring
Glamour, fluidity and an element of surprise are critical qualities to look for before making a lifetime commitment. This ring would be a supreme starting point. The glamour is obvious in the dazzling design centering on a 5.41-carat emerald-cut center stone. Then there is the fluidity of the band that flows around your finger. The surprise comes in the stones set in the sides—rounds and specially cut squares add extra sparkle. Finally, there is a flourish of poetry in the name Narcisse, a synonym for spring and a lovely symbol of eternal love.
