The only ring graded VSOP.
Harvest time in the Cognac region of France. We're in the middle of a walking tour of the brandy vineyards. Big names, little names and every one in between. The trick is to pace yourself. These grapes have been here since the Romans planted them 2000 years ago. They aren't going anywhere.
Walking upstairs from the still cellar, wandering through the vaulted stone hallways of the 11th century castle-I can't wait to get outside. The old copper stills were impressive, but what I'm looking forward to is a taste. We sit in the courtyard, walls thick with ivy. I swirl the brandy in my fat glass. A sniff, then a sip. It tastes like pure gold and sunshine. I may never leave.
Inspired by the art and science of crafting a fine aged brandy, we created the Cognac Ring. At the center, an impressive 9-3/4 carat, lab-created DiamondAura. The cushion-cut, brandy-colored centerpiece sits high on a four-pronged gold vermeil setting. On either side, two half-moon white DiamondAura fit snug against the pale golden superstar. Cognac-colored diamonds are incredibly rare and have shot up in value over the years. Our goal was to match the subtle color of prized natural stones that can fetch upwards of $15,000 per carat. After close inspection of the Cognac Ring, I'm proud to say that I can raise a glass and offer a toast to our glowing success.
