I recently had the great pleasure of working with wonderful Scottish engagement ring brand, Maevona, to run their social media accounts while their designer, Maeve, was on maternity leave.
I enjoyed the challenge of taking the helm of a completely new set of social media accounts, but I think that my very favorite part of the experience was getting to know MaeVona’s engagement rings. There’s nothing like spend a lot of time taking pictures of a jewelry line to really learn its ins and out – with the rings on my own hands and through my camera lens.
Many of MaeVona’s designs are inspired by the designer’s home country of Scotland – by Scottish towns, wildflowers, or famous locations. That inspiration mixed with Maeve’s fresh, modern aesthetic makes for a line of truly interesting and beautiful pieces.
I’ve handed the reins of MaeVona’s accounts back to Maeve, but I find myself still thinking about those fabulous rings. And I still have all the pretty photos I took…so I thought I’d share some of my favorites with you!
Here’s the lovely Vaila. How great is the gallery on this design? That’s the bit under the diamond. It has a vintage vibe that I’m totally into.
At the other end of the spectrum: here’s the glamorous Paisley Tri. Its details are much less subtle, and just as fantastic. This piece turns up the volume on a standard solitaire in a more creative way than just making the diamonds enormous.
A whole stack of what I like to call MaeVona’s “simple with a twist” round brilliant cut solitaires. Iconic, but not boring.
This ring is probably my very favorite, if I had to pick one. It’s the Torsa Square Pave, and the utter elegance of the ring’s shoulders – that’s the side part next to the center diamond – just kills me.
Here’s the fantastic Paisley ring. How great are those flowing lines? It’s so refreshing to see bigger diamonds set in interesting designs, instead of just set on plain bands.
This is Tansy Pave – one of MaeVona’s most popular engagement rings. I love how it exhibits clearly floral-inspired details without being overtly shaped like a flower.
Oval diamond engagement rings are well on their way to having a major moment. I love the unusual halo on this one: it’s the Snowdrop setting.
Dreamy side details on the Eriskay Double Loop design. I love the mixed metals here and the peek-a-boo of negative space visible within the loops.
I had 86 rings with me for this photoshoot, but this is the most I could reasonably fit on one hand.
Here are three of MaeVona’s most glamorous rings all together. I love the look of the mixed metals and the finger coverage of the wide, sensuous loops of the settings.
Gairsay is sort of the cousin of Torsa Square Pave (which I already showed you above) and I love it just as much. Those slender, kite-shaped side stones are just too good.
This is the glorious Glenrothes ring. It’s a perfect example of why I love MaeVona’s designs: it’s simple, but with subtle, perfect details that make it memorable and unique.
What do you think, my dears? Which of these MaeVona designs is your favorite?
As I mentioned, I was working for MaeVona at the time these photos were taken, but this is not a sponsored post.
