Bespoke jewelry brand Taylor & Hart has created a diamond-encrusted Haribo-inspired ring that you can *actually* propose with after being inundated with requests.
Specifically, the ring was inspired by the gummy rings that come in the Haribo Starmix and the company envisions it being used for real wedding proposals.
The ruby red band includes 224 rubies and is topped with an 18-karat yellow gold basket of 40 diamonds and a 2.70-karat cabochon yellow sapphire to create the ultimate proposal ring for your childhood sweetheart.
The London-based jeweler is selling the ring for $34,600 (£25,000), and the company says you could buy more than 12.5 million Haribo treats for that much money.
“We've all used a jelly sweet ring to jokingly ask our friends to marry us when we were kids, haven't we?” the company said. “Inspired by childhood dreams of marriage and ‘forever love’, this Haribo-inspired ring features a vibrant red and yellow colour palette that harks back to an age of fun, play and being home in time for dinner before the street lights come on.”
Kate Earlam-Charnley, design director at Taylor & Hart said they are delighted to bring the brand new design to life.
“Combining custom cut rubies and a syrupy cabochon yellow sapphire, this ring is one of the most ambitious we’ve ever created and definitely one of the most original,” Earlam-Charnley said.
With this design, Taylor & Hart were sure to capture the pure magic of falling head over heels for the first time. Because no matter how old you are, your special day should be filled with the same thrill you felt with your first crush.
“Made for the daydreamers, the hopeless romantics, those in search of something a little more pure and innocent, this ring is the perfect expression of love,” Earlam-Charnley said. “It’ll certainly make a great story while also saying 'love is forever'. We can’t wait to hear 'Yes' stories from our customers across the world!"
Taylor & Hart is a bespoke engagement and wedding ring and jewelery brand based in London.
