Pnina Tornai is now designing engagement rings! After more than two decades of working in the bridal industry, the worldwide renowned dress designer has crossed over to jewelry to design a ring collection for major jewelry retailer Jared.
Tornai told Brides that she has always dreamt of designing rings. “I believe in destiny, and I have waited for the perfect partner for a jewelry collection for a long time,” says Tornai. “When Jared approached me, I knew instantly that I found the one.” This also marks Jared’s first collaboration in wedding fashion.
Tornai’s first ring collection titled "One" will feature 31 original pieces that she says are inspired by the years of love stories she has witnessed. “Just as I do when I design my couture gowns, I trusted my intuition and followed my heart to design these rings,” Tornai told Brides. “I believe that something destined to serve love must be created with love. Having seen countless engagement rings on my brides’ fingers, I can look at a bride and know what ring is right for her.”
The collection includes a wide array of unique ring designs to fit every bride’s style—including a ring with a black diamond and another piece that will feature an emerald-cut center stone. Each ring is also finished with a rose gold cuff detail with three diamonds and Tornai’s signature along the band to mark it as a Pnina Tornia one-of-a-kind piece. The rings will retail anywhere from $699 to $19,999 and be exclusively available in Jared’s retail stores and online starting today.
And if you think her dresses are pretty, you must see these rings. They’re beautifully and intricately designed—just as her couture pieces always are. “I am known for my over-the-top, crystal-embellished couture gowns and the hand-crafted details that make each one special,” says Tornai. “If a dress doesn’t evoke emotion in me, then I will not be able to present it. The same is true of the rings.”
The best part? These 31 rings match her latest gown collection seamlessly. “We photographed some of my favorite rings from the collection with my new 2021 couture gown collection, which is also called 'One,'" she says. “I personally matched each ring with each dress, and you will see some of those beautiful pairings soon. But of course, part of the fun is for each bride to choose the Pnina ring and the Pnina gown that fit her best.”
Tornai is also known for her appearances on TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress filmed at Kleinfeld’s Bridal in New York, where she is the top-selling dress designer. On the show, her dresses are typically the dream dress that brings the bride and her family to tears—and a lot of brides say “yes” to a Pnina dress. Tornai’s designs have even been worn by many celebrities and public figures, including Jennifer Garner, Danielle Jonas, Kim Cattrall, Teresa Giudice, NeNe Leakes, and more.
And she’s not stopping with "One." Tornai says that this will not be her last ring collection. “This collaboration opened a flow of creativity that I never knew existed, and I have dozens more ring designs spinning in my head that I can’t wait to turn into reality!” A matching Pnina engagement ring and gown? Talk about a match made in heaven.
