UK jeweller creates 18-carat 'Haribo' ring
04 Feb 2021
London-based jeweller, Taylor & Hart, has created an 18-carat diamond engagement ring inspired by the iconic Haribo sweet
Bespoke jewellery brand Taylor & Hart has created a diamond-encrusted Haribo-inspired ring that you can *actually* propose with after being inundated with requests.
At the price of £25,000, the ruby red band includes 224 rubies and is topped with an 18-carat yellow gold basket of 40 diamonds and a 2.70-carat cabochon yellow sapphire to create the ultimate proposal ring for your childhood sweetheart.
Inspired by childhood dreams of marriage and ‘forever love’, this Haribo-inspired ring features a vibrant red and yellow colour palette of childhood nostalgia.
Kate Earlam-Charnley, Design Director at Taylor & Hart said: “With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we thought it was the perfect time to bring this 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."
Since its release back 1995, Haribo Starmix has been a firm favourite of Brits, and in 2019 was named the top sweet treat in the UK. The friendship rings are often the first to go out of the packet and so this design was a perfect fit.
Kate continued: “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. 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!"
