the dynasty

Ah, the dynasty ring. First of all, a pear shaped diamond. Is it just me are pear diamonds just so underrated? They are eye catching and fresh but also on the finger they slim and elongate. They look huge for their carat weight so you get more for your money if you get a pear diamond. Then there is the halo, which means putting small diamonds around the center stone diamond. And what’s better then one halo? Two. So The Dynasty is a double halo pear, because hello if you’re going to do it, do it.


In music, syncopation involves a variety of rhythms which are in some way unexpected and break from the established pattern. Just because we’re really going for a DUH here, as in DUHynasty, the halo is syncopated with tapered baguettes.

We love it in Rose Gold but it comes in Yellow Gold and Platinum, too. You can see it all the metals and check out pricing here.

Here’s some photos from our look book of this gorgeous ring:





Why did we name it the Dynasty?

A dynasty is a sequence of rulers from the same family, but we’re obviously taking a little aesthetic liberty, as you can tell we like to do, you semanticist.

The longest-surviving dynasty in the world is the Imperial House of Japan, the Yamato dynasty.

Are they beautiful or what? But this is getting a little post modern for my taste which I’m theoretically opposed to so let’s get personal. Yonatan and I are very interested in the Chabad Dynsasty, which specifically refers to a dynasty of rabbi’s, 7 generations deep, that have had great influence on the growth of the hasidic movement as well as Judaism in general. Yonatan and I live in a Chabad community. It is something we chose to do, but some of the families in our community have been Chabad for many generations – which is something we look at with awe and wonder.

In fact a close friend of mine is related to the Baal Shem Tov, the rabbi who started the freaking movement. In her parent’s living room, the dining table is sandwiched between a portrait of her parents, all their kids, and allll their grandkids. And on the other side is a painting of her grand father and great grandfather, both in very traditional outfits. You sense the deep roots, you sense the immensity of their future, you sense that the sum is bigger than the parts and there are a loooot of parts.

My friend herself is not just like a normal person. And the best way to describe it, as I often do if if I’m telling someone about her, is lower my voice and say … she’s dynasty.

That’s the thing about being dynasty. It’s not something you can hide or hide from. It’s something people will whisper about you, it’s a fact that will always be true about you. It’s pretty intense. Like this ring. So if you’re proposing to someone dynasty, or want to start your own, this is your ring.
