When thinking about a romantic, vintage aesthetic two distinct designers come to mind: Claire Pettibone's bohemian and dainty wedding dresses, and Trumpet & Horn's carefully curated wedding-day jewels. So it didn't surprise us much to learn that the two joined forces to create the vintage-inspired engagement ring collection of our dreams — and Pettibone's first-ever fine jewelery line launches tomorrow!

In anticipation of the launch, we got an exclusive sneak peek at the gems, and spoke to Pettibone about the process of designing jewelry vs. gowns. "I've always been such a fan of vintage jewelry, and I knew it was just a matter of time before I would create a collection," Pettibone said. "I remember being asked once in an interview what I would do if I wasn't a bridal gown designer, and my answer: I would design jewelry. An engagement ring is really the most important piece of jewelry a woman will wear, just as a wedding gown has a symbolic meaning, and I love creating pieces with that significance."

While Pettibone described the partnership as a "dream," she did experience quite the role reversal: "My gowns have often been inspired by jewelry, but in creating these rings, I was inspired by my dresses!" she explained.

As you can probably tell from the photos, these rings aren't lacking in romantic details. From dainty swirls to floral motifs, the precious jewels fall in line with Pettibone's vision for a collection that's "lyrically feminine, vintage inspired, and romantic," she said. "Each piece has some detail, whether it be a stunning colored stone, an intricate band, or a delicate flower, that is a bit unexpected."
