(PRESS RELEASE) Bespoke jewelry brand Taylor & Hart has created a diamond-encrusted Haribo-inspired ring that you can *actually* propose with after being inundated with requests.

The ruby red band includes 224 diamonds and is topped with an 18 karat yellow gold basket of 40 diamonds and a 2.70 karat cabochon yellow sapphire to create the ultimate proposal ring for your childhood sweetheart. You could buy over 12,000 of the sweet Haribo treats for the cost of this ring, which could be yours for $34,300.

We’ve all used a jelly candy ring to jokingly ask our friends to marry us when we were kids, haven’t we? Inspired by childhood dreams of marriage and ‘forever love’, this Haribo-inspired ring features a vibrant red and yellow color palette that harks back to an age of fun, play and being home in time for tea before the street lights come on.

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.”

With this design, Taylor & Hart were sure to capture the pure magic of falling head over heels for the first time. Because no matter how old you are, your special day should be filled with the same thrill you felt with your first crush.

To make this beauty the ultimate throwback, they’re paying homage to the most luxurious of all gummies: the red and yellow Haribo ring.

The Sweet Ring features:

  • One 2.70 karat cabochon yellow sapphire
  • 40 fancy-intense yellow diamonds in an 18 karat yellow gold basket
  • 224 custom cut 2.50kt rubies invisible set into an 18 karat rose gold band

Bringing some sweet nostalgia to adult life

Prepare to feel some intense nostalgia as you catch a glimpse of the candy-inspired creation lighting up the streets. Taylor & Hart wanted to bring this concept of playground proposals out into the real world and create a story of make-believe made real.

Designed for the kids-at-heart, crafted for love

So why did Taylor & Hart choose to make this Haribo-inspired ring as its latest bespoke design? Since its release in the early 1980’s, Haribo has been a firm favorite of Americans, and has been named one of the top candy treats in the world. 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!”

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
