Feb 16, 2012 >> Tiffany & Co.’s Liza Zito shares her favorite engagement rings
As Group Director of Tiffany & Co. Chicago, our Spotlight this week Liza Zito is the go-to authority for any bride who is on the hunt for their perfect ring (or any groom who dares to pick out one without his fiancé’s approval!). When G&F asked Liza to share some of her favorite Tiffany & Co. styles, she jumped at the opportunity, sending back five distinct rings for five distinct brides. We’re dying to know: what kind of bride are you?
The Tiffany Setting was introduced in 1886 and remains the world’s most popular engagement ring. The six-prong setting lifts a round brilliant stone away from the band, allowing the light to shine through to show the diamond in all its brilliance. I love its simplicity and classic beauty.
The Lucida ring is one of our first patented diamond cuts. The diamond has a square mixed-cut shape, with wide corners. I think it has a graceful feel and works nicely with a setting lined with diamonds.
Embrace is pure romance with a diamond-encrusted setting and band. I especially like how this setting works beautifully with a round center stone.
Bezet offers a streamlined look in a minimal setting. When brides are looking for something a little relaxed and casual, I always show them this style.
This Tiffany Legacy has a huge wow factor. It features a cushion-cut stone surrounded by bead set diamonds. I think it has 1920’s era feel of glamour.
Find your perfect ring at Tiffany & Co., 730 N. Michigan Avenue, 312.944.7500.
