PW Reader Ring: Caitlin & Steven!

Caitlin's ring!

Caitlin’s ring!

The couple: Caitlin Harvey and Steven Sztenderowicz, from Manayunk.

The ring: My ring is white gold with a round-cut center diamond with a halo of diamonds set around it. There is a sapphire set on each side of the diamond.

We had talked about getting engaged for a while, so I told him that I only had two requests of the ring: it had to have color and the diamonds had to be sustainably sourced. Steven designed my ring with the help of my best friend and the ring was made by Kranich’s Jewelers in State College.

Are we really going to throw shot-taking parties? It was all a lot, and while I think we did pretty well with our selections, it would have been nice to have an expert just give us some guidelines and recommendations.

That’s why we thought our engaged couples might like to know that next week, Liz Scarlett, owner of Old City’s home and gift boutique Scarlett Alley (they’ve got a killer bridal registry) is holding an event during which she will tell you what glasses are what, and what you should get. Here’s the deal:
