It’s summer and with Kate Moss (sorry Hince’s) nuptials only just behind us, we can announce that love is truly in the air, and this season designers have been falling back in love with romance.
This week we’re smitten with Alex Monroe’s gorgeously feminine Forget Me Not ring that will capture your heart faster than you can say Prince Charming.
A stunning promise or commitment ring, the romantic symbolism of the Forget Me Not flower whispers the sweet nothings of balmy summer nights, while the beautiful design of the ring itself proves that this summer, romance is the real deal.
Unlike many traditional commitment rings which all too often have an air of staid and polished formality, this youthful, nature-inspired design has a carefree air to it that captures the free-spirited side of love.
But youthful though it may seem, this ring is no childish accessory. The cluster of Forget Me Nots, with their beautifully crafted white gold petals, each detailed with a diamond stamen gleaming against a yellow gold band, breathe sophisticated style.
Wear with this season’s pastels for soft and feminine summer style, and slide over a pair of black leather driving gloves in winter. Even if your summer romance doesn’t last beyond autumn, this ring is perennial.
Alex Monroe Forget-Me-Not Ring, £1,950, available at Astley Clarke.
