My new Delicate Collection debut

I'm so excited to introduce my new prong bezel Delicate Collection! Shown here, the new design is in 14K gold, with rose cut white diamonds and pave diamonds in the gold band - sophisticated and gorgeous while being totally unlike a traditional wedding band, engagement ring, or addition to your collection. My white gold ring on the left is classically beautiful and elegant. More pieces to be added to this collection soon, so stay tuned!

with love

Signature Diamond

Our diamond slice ring has become, in the last couple of years, a signature Tula Design, beloved by brides and regular arbiters of great taste all over the world! This particular beauty shown here is a .44 carat yellow diamond slice surrounded by .23 carat white micropave diamonds. All stones are conflict-free and the 14K gold is recycled, of course, as we believe strongly in impacting the environment (and its humans) as little as possible in the making of our jewelry. 

You can find this ring right here on our site

May's Birthstone

Believe it or not, this craggy hunk of rock is actually the legendary Bahia Emerald, one of the largest emeralds in the world! Weighing 840 lbs (1,900,000 carats), it was found in Brazil and is valued at approximately $400 million. How's that for a May birthstone story?

The price of diamonds

Not only are we moved by sustainability and ethics in our jewelry production, but we are mindful of cost, as well. I found it interesting to see in this weekend's New York Times a comparison of diamond costs based solely upon where you purchase. 

At Tula, our diamonds are 100% conflict-free and are sourced from small, family-run, local Los Angeles businesses!

From NYTimes:
"Color and clarity impact the price of a 1/2-carat diamond solitaire ring, but so does location, as evidenced by the price difference between Van Cleef & Arpels, on Fifth Avenue, and Solitaire Creations, a diamond-district standby."

with love,
