kdd engagement private collection 540x405 Ken & Dana Design Private Engagement Ring Collection

When it comes to the ring , the  token of love and commitment that an engagement ring represents, the choices and possibilities are endless. Celebrity weddings and the focus on gigantic stones have made the average woman think it necessary to be blinded by karats at the expense of  the loving guy who is expected to spend his life’s earnings .

While the Snobettes still have  love for a  blinding Cartier or David Yurman , the idea of a unique/your grandmama’s ring is so much more the hoteness (we’re suckers for a  good story).Ken& Dana designs latest private engagement rings  make the idea of  a unique ring a reality. Radika Chin handpicked a capsule collection of vintage one-of-a-kind  rings sourced from various antique shops all over the country readily available after sizing. You can view the current private collection here.

Pretty  and beautifully crafted jewelry is always interesting and always catches our eye , but when  designers choose to infuse their creation with meanings and tenets of history that have had a great impact on society, Highsnobette had to take notice. Ken Leung  and Dana Chin of Bside recently launched their “Rights Collection” using the numbers of   4 major cases that have dramatically changed our society:

Romer vs. Evans (Protection against discrimination by  sexual orientation), Leser vs. Garnett ( 19th Amendment women’s right to vote), Brown vs. Board of Ed.
