Who What Wear Co-Founder Hillary Kerr Engagement Ring by Ricardo Basta Fine Jewelry

As longtime Who What Wear readers, the day a familiar blonde and her soon to be husband, Jonathan, buzzed into Ricardo Basta Fine Jewelry on a recommendation, looking for the perfect setting for her early 1900's mine cut diamond, was an exciting one. 

The center stone of my engagement ring is an old-mine cut diamond from the early 1900s and is set in platinum. Using this as a jumping-off point, we worked with Ernie Eichberg to design our wedding bands. Jonathan opted for a very simple, classic band in platinum, and we created two thin diamond bands for me. Mr. Eichberg sourced vintage old-mine cut diamonds for my bands, as Jonathan and I liked the idea of the stones all being from the same era—it felt romantic and sentimental, creating something new and old at the same time.
