Playground Proposal Ring Comes to Life in Haribo-Inspired Ring

Inspired by childhood dreams of marriage and ‘forever love’, this Haribo-inspired ring features a vibrant red and yellow color palette.





(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.”

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!”



When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
