LOVE: Due Punti silicone diamond rings

I’m not so much in love with these colourful rings as TOTALLY obsessed. I discovered them last year and they made beautiful (although slightly extravagant but I couldn’t resist ’em) ย Christmas and birthday gifts for a few special people in my life.

I got two.

I usually wear them together but quite like the subtle look of one as well (although not so great on heat-swollen fingers).

Made in Italy, “due punti” means “two points” in Italian and the diamonds are set between two flat points of silver.

I love the juxtaposition of the colourful silicone and diamond. The diamonds are real, by the way. They’re only .o2 of a carat which means they’re so small that if the jeweller accidentally sniffed while setting them he’d probably inhale a few. Despite their diminutive size, these mere hints of diamond sparkle like a footballer’s girlfriend on the Brownlow red carpet. Only tastefully.

I think these would make the perfect engagement holding ring ie, the ring you might get in the interim while you choose the one you’ll wear forever. At $99AUS they really are pretty reasonably priced.

Do you like these rings or think diamonds and plastic should never meet? What colour would you buy?

Email me if you want to know where I bought mine (in Australia).

    • Thanks for that link Kate. I had a look and they are even more reasonably priced than I had thought. I’ll let people know.

  3. Hi… not sure if you follow this post still, but I had a question. Would this be a terribly stupid engagement ring? I’m a broke grad student, and don’t have a lot of cash… they sell them in her favorite color

    • Hi Nate. I don’t know what kind of person your girlfriend is, so can only speak to how I would feel. And personally I would feel delighted. I’ve often thought they would make fabulous engagement rings – such a change from the normal stuff, a bit of fun, vaguely customisable through colour and a real diamond to boot. A mere sliver of a diamond yes, but a real bit nonetheless.
      Look, to be completely frank, if you think your gal would be disappointed if she didn’t get proper diamonds or a more traditional ring then maybe this isn’t the ring for you. But if she’s not that kind of person and likes something a bit left of usual and would appreciate whatever token of your undying love you want to give, then I imagine she would be thrilled. And if she’s somewhere in-between those two spots, then it might make a great interim ring. Like a pre-engagement, hold-the-fiancee kind of thing!
      Whatever you decide, I think she’s a lucky girl to have someone like you who clearly cares enough to worry about making the right choice. So whatever you settle on, best of luck with your future – I wish you much love and happiness.
