RE-INTRODUCING: The Torn Paper Collection

torn paper bands

Whether you’re newer to the SKFJ family or have followed our journey for some time, you most likely have come across The Torn Paper Collection. With its signature uneven edges, these sentimental statement pieces draw inspiration from handwritten love letters of centuries past and remind us that jewelry not only brings joy to a moment in time, but has done so through the ages. Though these flat surfaces are inscribed with diamonds instead of pen, the sentiment is the same: a meaningful gift for a loved one. Pieces range from bold, chunky gold rings “cracked” open with pave-set diamonds to minimal gold necklaces with organic nature-inspired shapes.

Not only are these statement bands gorgeous as wedding bands for men and women, but they make stunning statements rings for your right hand – really, any finger will do! Though we typically don’t like to play favorites… (you can shop the entire collection here) scroll on to find some Torn Paper Collection styles we have a little extra love for!

TOP 10 UNIQUE ENGAGEMENT RINGS PICKS TO MAKE YOUR HEART FLUTTER

One sunny Sunday in Santa Monica, a cheery couple by the names of Sarah and Bryan walked into the showroom to do some engagement ring browsing. They had not done much shopping but Sarah knew she wanted a 1-1.5ct round or oval solitaire and was curious what options we had for her. As she slid on a few rings that fit her criteria, she sighed a few hmm’s and ahh’s of approval. It wasn’t until Sarah tried on the Melina, a sparkling 1.62ct Marquise Brilliant Cut, that her eyes lit up and the energy in the room turned luminous. “This is the RING!” she exclaimed!

We must admit that this exact story is, in fact, fictional but many versions of this story play out quite often here at SKFJ. The truth is, you might think you choose your engagement ring but oftentimes, it chooses you. And it’s usually the moment that your heart does an immediate flutter that you just know.

Engagement ring shopping should be fun and magical, so we’re here to drop all the technical stuff for just a minute (although knowing your 4 C’s is important!) and show you our top 10 engagement rings that make our heart absolutely FLUTTER (and we think they’ll make yours flutter too)! All of these styles are available now or able to be made again, with your own bespoke twist.
