The A. Jaffe diamond ring is a philosophical take on marriage itself. When you look at an A. Jaffe diamond ring you cannot ignore the twisting, bending and complex designs put in by artists as if to mimic the nature of relationship itself. The flowing motion of the white, yellow, rose gold and platinum reflects the unpredictability of love, its ups and downs, and occasionally sidesteps. The quilted-like patterns mirror the maze of marriage, as both man and wife seek their way through the turns and bends in their relationship. Will they emerge triumphant? Or fall down into the sudden drops or face a high wall in their marriage, much like the diamond’s facets stop light and bounce it back and forth; or will they succeed and emerge to reach the solitaire aim of all relationships: ever-lasting love like the immortal life of a diamond.
A. Jaffe is available at Shreve & Co. in Portland, Oregon.
