Kanye West popped the question to Kim Kardashian with a 15-carat diamond ring by Lorraine Schwartz. I appreciate his timing, because yesterday I launched another Instagram account — @WendyBrandesJewelry — which focuses solely on my jewelry designs and other jewelry news. No cats and dogs (you need to follow @fitzroy_the_cat for those) and no concert photos (those are at my personal Instagram, @WendyBrandes). Just jewelry! (“Just [fill in the blank]” wording will forever make me think of the Just Bulbs store on David Letterman’s show.) So thanks, Kanye! I now forgive you for that whole table-stealing episode.
In a day or two, I will be turning the new Instagram account over to Eryn, my very first full-time employee. Woot! I’ll also introduce her to you here. But, until then, hustle over to @WendyBrandesJewelry on Instagram to get my personal reaction to the Kimye ring and see some of the custom engagement rings I’ve created for my own gorgeous clients. If you want more background on one of the rings you see — or to look at additional rings — click here to browse the engagement ring posts on this blog. If you’re more fascinated by Kanye than by engagement rings, click here to see all my mentions of him.
Yippee I am the first to comment! =)
I don’t care about Kimye. But, I did notice the fact that they got engaged this weekend & that he gave her a 15 carat ring (15!!)
I haven’t seen a close up yet. But, I haven’t really looked & I don’t really feel the need to now after I saw your gorgeous engagement ring on here!
that. ring. is. amazing.
Flattery will get you everywhere around here! xoxo
Its not flattery when its the truth! But, that is good to know LOL
Woot at being the lucky first full-time employee!
Congrats on your new FTE! I’m sure you and Eryn are going to have some fun.
I think we will!

An employee! Wow, WendyB! I wish you more success 🙂
Ugh, those two make me nauseous, and the fact that they chose my town to get engaged in really pisses me off. Couldn’t they have done that shit in LA??
And with one of my rings? That would have been perfect 😉
I bet Kim wishes she had this ring!
You’d think Kanye would go for something really edgy!
Eh. I don’t get the big rock thing. It just looks heavy. Now your ring looks heavy in a GOOD way.
I like hefty-feeling metal — so you can feel the ring is there!

Congratulations on the employee!!!!! The ring is beautiful.
Eryn has made a big difference already!
