If you dream of a solitaire ring, but are afraid of diamonds (after all, do not always know their origin) or unable to invest in a diamond ring, Luiza Altoé a blogger and jewelry designer, based in Curitiba (the Land of capybaras), is an alternative.
One of my favorite parts of the design is this solitaire ring, it has a classic style, reminiscent of fine jewelery, with the same magic of platinum, white gold and diamonds, but with silver and cubic zirconia, a great option for the engagement ring.
The solitaire ring, is a great accessory option to be used during the day, ideal for birthday gift, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, or such other date in particular, the price is affordable ($60US¹, and Luiza site always has promotions!). If you’re looking to invest in a jewel, this ring is not a good option. Silver and cubic zirconia, generally don’t have a good resale price, but you can long-term sell in a bazaars². It is ideal for those just starting to collect gems, or as a gift.
