Buying just the right engagement ring is always a momentous decision, but if you are searching for something that will speak directly to your intended’s heart and stand apart from any other possibility, the Kirk Kara Charlotte sapphire and diamond engagement ring is a stellar choice.
It is a product of the Kirk Kara house of design, a family-owned business that has been crafting breathtaking jewelry since 1890. Kirk Kara began learning the craft of jewelry making in 1965, when he was still a teenager in high school, and the technology and automation that we enjoy today weren’t yet dreamed of. He learned the craft from beginning to end, from hand-drawn designs, to the selection of just the right stones, to carving and setting them and engraving, all done by hand. Kirk Kara’s Angelique ring, intended for wearing on the right hand, was inspired by his mother, whose name, of course, was Angelique. From his earliest experiences in design, he has said, he had always envisioned the Angelique line in her honor.
Kirk Kara is also well known for his use of gem stones of varying colors, in addition to just diamonds. His feeling has always been that nature’s own color choices could reflect a woman’s personality, and their selection made the choice of a particular piece that much more meaningful. The Charlotte collection, and in particular, the Charlotte sapphire and diamond engagement ring is no exception.
It lacks nothing in appeal, with 1/3 cwt of diamonds, offset by 2 brilliant sapphires and enhanced by milgrain edging and hand-carved scroll work. You may also select the optional one carat round diamond.

Made to be paired with the matching Stella wedding band, its split shank and details ensure that its beauty is displayed from all angles, leaving a breathtaking impression of light and opulence.
The timeless beauty of Kirk Karaguezian's work is the continuation of a family tradition of artistry that his grandfather initiated near the end of the 19th century. In the small workshop where he began the multi-generational family business, he developed a reputation for creating elegant, precisely hand engraved jewelry. Drawing his inspirations from his familiarity with quality carvings of the Armenian culture, he was the first of a line of Karaguezians who carried the torch and grew the enterprise while maintaining the integrity of the quality work that was established early on.
Nothing better signifies the bond between man and wife than an exquisite men's wedding band from the Artin collection. This sand-finished criss cross patterned ring speaks volumes about your taste and style. Available in gold or platinum, in multiple widths, it is an expression of love you'll be proud to wear. The Artin collection offers a variety of designs that are hand-engraved. Inspired by classic styles from the past, today’s pieces are the elegant result of artistic re-workings of extraordinary ideas from the age of elegance.
That era at the end of the 19th century saw the beginnings of a family tradition of artistry. Kirk Karaguezian’s grandfather opened a workshop for designing and producing hand engraved jewelry of precision and elegance. He took the inspiration for his work from fine carvings representative of the Armenian culture.
Following the grandfather’s 1915 death in the Armenian Genocide, Kirk’s father, Artin, escaped to Beirut, Lebanon where he continued to build the family‘s reputation for craftsmanship. Demand for their work grew rapidly.
As he traveled widely through Europe, he became enamored with its aesthetics and his designs began to incorporate the European styles. In his journeys, Artin met and fell in love with Angel, whom he married. For the occasion, he designed for his bride a stunning wedding band engraved by hand. This creation was to be the inspiration for all future Kirk Kara pieces.
The Kirk Kara tradition of excellence and beauty continues today with each piece being handcrafted, ensuring that each is unique. A serial number on every Kirk Kara ring guarantees that it is a genuine work of their Master Craftsmen. This men's wedding band is not just a striking statement of commitment; it is an original and timeless work of art made just for you.
When you think about a typical engagement ring, the emphasis is on the central stone. The Angelique engagement ring from Kirk Kara turns the entire piece into a work of art, as the band is just as gorgeous as the stone in the center. The band swirls and sparkles with 1/8 ctw of diamonds and 1/6 ctw of blue sapphires. The signature handcrafted milgrain edging blends beautifully with the smaller stones to create a sense of vivacious energy that matches the love that the two of you feel for one another.
Choose a stone for the central setting that fits your vision for the ring. A 1-carat round stone blends perfectly with the curvature in the rest of the ring, but select the stone that matches what you want for the ring. Available in both platinum and gold, this is the ring that you should give to the most wonderful woman in the world.
