Not only the book made me curious of the ring but I want to know what is art nouveau, of course. I bet I would be curious too if I read about joy jewellers promise rings. I found that art nouveau is the style between 1898-1910 where the design is inspired by the nature forms. Most of the rings that I saw have lovely design and patterns in them – flowers, plants. I am always fascinated with natural designs on jewellery and I reckon I own a few.
Back to the story on the book, it was not an engagement ring but an eternity ring. And it was given with a note and a speech that was so sweet.
