In the Name of LVOE

Jewelry designer Rony Tennenbaum has designed a lot of jewelry during his 10-year employment with Fabrikant-Tara International LLC, but perhaps his most meaningful creations—commitment rings—will be sold this year.

According to Tennenbaum, the gay and lesbian community is an underserved market whose members frequently request commitment rings. To meet an obvious need, he created the LVOE collection, with 42 styles of rings, and launched it at The JCK Show ~ Las Vegas this year. One style features an overlapping squares emblem designed specifically for LVOE that represents “the love between two people of any orientation,” notes Tennenbaum.

Currently, rings are offered in 14k white or yellow gold, or a mix of both, and feature colorless and black diamonds and/or created alexandrite. Suggested retail prices start at $699.
