Not to further exhaust the cliché, but diamonds really are a girl's best friend. Especially in this case, where Lauren's customer was ready to ditch her gold ring in which these beautiful stones were originally set. Pictured above, the gold ring that belonged to the customer's great aunt, although well-loved, had seen better days. Years, maybe even decades-worth, of dirt and grime along with scratches and gashes left the customer desiring something fresh and new. We took out the original stones, 32 round diamonds and an oval emerald, and set them in this beautiful white gold cross-shaped ring. The ring, custom-designed by Lauren herself, gives these stones a new lease on life.
