    What a wonderful collection! I love love love the Audrey: Shimmer Ring w. Diamonds and Rose Quartz ( It’s gorgeous! I am a big fan of round stones (it’s what I got on my engagement ring!) and I love the setting. The addition of the two sparkly little diamonds didn’t hurt either! If I had to pick a word to describe her collection, I think it would have to whimsical. It’s immediately the first thing I thought of. The matte finish on all the metals with the subdued hues – these would be gorgeous accessories to an engagement photo shoot in a field of lush flowers!

  • The Raquel is stunning! “Poetic” was the first word that came to mind, but then I saw that was part of the branding! So I will say “heavenly”. Light, airy and feminine in design though awe inspiring.

  • I would love to win that ring since the fiance and I can’t afford to buy me an engagement ring. If I had my pick of Betsey’s entire line, I’d choose Christina in white gold. I think these rings are “blythe”.

  • The Sally Stardust Ring w/ White Quartz is undoubtly my favorite piece. They are all so elegantly beautiful and quintessentially “me”! If I had to use one word to describe them I’d have to say delicatethereal ( delicate and ethereal). I just couldn’t think of a “real” word that fit just right!

Not only is it gold and crisp blue (one of my fav combos) BUT Lucia is my daughter’s name! How sweet would it be to pass one down to her. And if you name a ring “Lucy”(the patron saint of the blind) the only word to describe it would be =

  • I think an appropriate description would be “subtly ethereal”, as in: the jewelry has a quality that seems otherworldly, but it doesn’t try too hard to grab attention (the subtle is very important here!). The Raquel is my favorite ring!

  • Jenn says:

    My favorite piece is the Brigitte: Mermaid Ring w. Lemon Quartz. I have always loved mermaids and considered myself to be one. I would definitely describe it as fanciful and magical.

  • Lindley says:

    I think the Audrey is my favorite, though they’re all beautiful! And the word I would use to describe Betsey’s jewelry is “clean!”

  • Roman says:

    The Stella ring has to be my favorite. I’m sure it’s already been said, but to me, these pieces feel elegant and refined.

  • My favorite ring: Farrah, with her soft green stone and warm golden richness. One word to describe Betsey’s work: clean.

  • My favorite has to be the Stella because it reminds me so much of this ring my grandmother always wore and I loved. It’s tough to describe the perfectly simple beauty of Betsey’s jewelry in one word but I’d go with “lovely” even if that is quite a boring word I think it has a classy connotation.

  • Sarah says:

    I just love the Luella. Its gorgeous and simple, which I LOVE!

    If I were to describe her jewelry, I would have to say clean!

  • Carol S says:

    Very hard to choose, but I do love the Josie. And if I had to boil her designs down to one word, I would have to say “delicate”. Everything seems so feminine and balanced!!

  • Christina B. says:

    I’m completely in love with Luella. Besides perfect, the best word for Betsey’s design must be timeless – timeless beauty and timeless design.

  • Lana Rose says:

    Farrah is stunning.

    Betsey’s work reminds me of the type of beauty in new love.,. Thus I have chosen the word mamihlapinatapais from the Yaghan language of Tierra del Fuego. It means: a look shared by two people, each hoping that the other will initiate something that both desire but that neither one wants to start.. It is considered the world’s most succinct word. Similarly, Betsey’s art is beautiful in it’s simplicity yet is hard to translate into words.

  • Jessica says:

    All the rings have their own special quality. I absolutely love the Josie ring. The best word to describe the Josie ring would be “essential.” It is an essential piece to wear, admire, and to present to someone you adore and cherish!

  • Oh my word. I love these rings. I don’t have a diamond ring, just a wedding band, by my own choice, because I have never found any that I liked…until these. I think I have a three way tie between the Audrey, the Lucy and the Christina. Ahhh. Because I have never been so moved by diamond jewelry before, my word to describe is one-and-only.

  • Kelly in DC says:

    My fav is the Luella. I would describe Betsey Sook jewelry as charismatic.

  • Isabel G says:

    So beautiful! I love the Sally and Lucy rings. I would describe Betsey Sook jewelry as inspiring!

  • Leandra says:

    The Audrey ring grabbed me first. I would say all of the pieces convey a sense of being “untethered”.

  • Michelle says:

    The Sally ring is absolutely my favorite piece, although the Farrah and Audrey rings are a very close second and third. I feel a sense of restraint, reflection, and quiet elegance in all the designs, and after reading all of the posted comments and stories shared here, it’s even more apparent to me that Betsey’s creations are EVOCATIVE.

  • Stacey C says:

    My favorite piece of her jewelry is the Sally and Grace. One one: simplicity. Love!

  • i’m obsessed with the raquel. and the one word that kept coming to mind as i browsed the site was ‘magical.’ really these gems are unreal!

  • Claire says:

    The Sally ring is probably my favorite though it is very difficult to choose just one! Betsey clearly has the word “feminine” in mind when she designed these delightful beauties! yes, that’s the word that describes these rings best, “feminine.”
