We believe Paul Newman to have been one of the most handsome men to ever walk the face of this earth. Add to that his talent, not only as an actor, but an accomplished race car driver, and one of the most altruistic individuals there ever was, you would wonder what kind of woman would not only attract this fine fellow, but would keep him madly, deeply in love for 50 years. It would be one Joanne Woodward who seized the heart of Paul. She has been quoted as saying, “Sexiness wears thin after a while and beauty fades, but to be married to a man who makes you laugh every day, ah, now that’s a real treat.”
If we were to choose a ring for the young Joanne Woodward bride, with her forward thinking and her modern and independent demeanor, it would have to be a ring that felt substantial without weighing her down- something modern, yet elegant, but definitely a design that would make you do a double take. We would choose the stiletto ring, with the princess cut diamond (She is Hollywood royalty after all!)–A modern aesthetic and old world charm come together in this beautifully executed double-banded 18K gold ring. A sparkling (0.50ct) princess cut diamond is set upside down, or “stiletto” style as we like to call it, framed with a border of micro-pavé diamonds (0.08ctw). It’s a ring that would be as beautiful from day one, to year 50. We wish you all a long and loving marriage like Joanne & Paul!
