    The Nikko ring I’ve had my eye on for quite sometime. I don’t has a rule love a marquis set diamond, but something about putting it on the horizontal makes my heart go pitter patter. This one would nestle up nicely to my grandmothers band.

    My fiancee and I lived in Philly for 10 years, and recently moved. Our home was in south philly, not far from the shop. I am lucky my fiancee chose to get my engagement ring from Bario & Neal. Its very meaningful to have a piece of our neighborhood & city where we met & fell in love.

    We plan on getting our bands there as well. The channel narrow band was my favorite that I tried on. Its so hard to pick a favorite because their work is truly perfection!

    I would love to have a pair of earrings from them to wear for the wedding!
