• I think so, too! Did you know that the diamond engagement ring “tradition” is entirely a DeBeers invention? They’ve worked hard to convince (brain wash) us into thinking that a diamond ring is the ONLY type of engagement ring that is acceptable. They were successful in getting Americans and especially the Japanese to buy into this story…in most places in Europe, it didn’t catch.

      Gotta run now. Hope you are having a nice Sunday!

    Wow, Joana. That is the most beautiful wedding ensemble I have seen in a very long time. Brava to you! A talent for design indeed.

    Wishing you well, and missing you, too!

    • Hi Margaret,

      Thanks so much for your nice words on my engagement/wedding ring duo and for writing me on my blog! I understand that you’ll be coming this way sometime soon….would be nice to catch up over coffee somewhere if you have the time. Please let me know. (I can bring my viola and serenade you during lunch if that will help;-)

      All best wishes,
