Austin-based jewelry designer Kendra Scott, who launched her eponymous line in 2002, has long been a part of the wedding journey, from bridesmaid accessories to wedding bands and anniversary treasures. But today, the designer has finally made an official foray into engagement rings with her debut collection of 11 gorgeous styles.
“Launching our very own engagement collection was a natural next step, especially following the success of our fine jewelry business,” says Scott, who got married earlier this year. “Customers trust us to design and create beautiful, high-quality pieces for everyday use, and it was clear that there was a demand for engagement, too!”
The fully customizable engagement ring collection includes signature Kendra Scott styles, like the brand’s bestselling medallion silhouette. Specifically, brides can choose from a range of bespoke options from the carat size to the cut and color of the stone and metal.
“For the modern bride that’s looking for that extra sparkle, my favorite ring is the Signature, which features a halo setting inspired by our Kendra Scott medallion and a pavé band,” shares the designer. “I also love the Emerald Solitaire, which is set horizontally—it's an unexpected twist on a classic silhouette.”
In keeping with her goal of providing customers with “gorgeous, one-of-a-kind jewelry at an attainable price,” the costs of Scott's pieces are truly affordable thanks to the lab-grown diamonds she uses—ranging from $1,350 (for something like the Solitaire) to $8,000 for the embellished Signature and Iconic Halo styles.
“We constantly seek innovation, whether in our customer experience or in our designs. When considering diamond direction, we selected lab-grown diamonds as they are at the forefront of science, and technology,” she says. “Possessing nearly the same chemical, optical, and physical properties as natural diamonds, lab-grown diamonds are high quality at an exceptional value.”
The debut collection is now available in 12 select Kendra Scott stores across the U.S. and virtually at KendraScott.com; and each ring is made-to-order and delivered roughly three weeks from the order date. Whether you choose to visit the brick-and-mortar shop or opt to do it online, the brand is committed to making your journey as low-stress as possible.
