Bridal, July–August 2016: Rahaminov’s New Shape & More


On the Movál 

Taking inspiration from an Edwardian ring circa 1920, the Goldfiner family behind Rahaminov Diamonds has unveiled its new Movál collection. Diamond jewelry designed for brides, the line is composed of ovals (movál refers to an elongated or marquise oval shape) set in platinum and 18k gold. “We like the softness of a round tip versus the pointy nature of a marquise,” explains Melanie Goldfiner. There is no buy-in; retail prices start at around $20,000. 

Top: ring in platinum and 18k rose gold with a 2.32 ct. fancy pink oval-shape diamond, 0.56 ct. t.w. trapezoid-cut diamonds, and 0.23 ct. t.w. melee, price on request, earrings in 18k rose gold with 4.68 cts. t.w. oval-shape diamonds and 0.36 ct. t.w. melee, price on request; inset: bracelet in platinum with 18.96 cts. t.w. diamonds, price on request, Rahaminov Diamonds, Los Angeles, 800-742-8864,



Dare to Be Different


Sofia Kaman’s Art Deco–inspired rings are some of the coolest styles on the market. The I Deco Dare You ring features an inverted hexagonal diamond flanked by baguettes, in a contemporary north-south setting. Kaman calls it a “Rocking Traditions” piece. 

I Deco Dare You ring in 18k matte yellow gold with a 0.75 ct. t.w. inverted hexagonal diamond and 0.36 ct. t.w. baguette- and brilliant-cut diamonds, $7,500,


“We are strong with halos and round stones in larger sizes: 1¼ carats to 2½ carats. White gold mountings sell best, as do styles from Valina from Simon Golub and ArtCarved.”
