The Vera Wang LOVE Collection

With an unwavering design philosophy and scrupulous attention to detail, iconic fashion and bridal designer Vera Wang created ‘Vera Wang LOVE’, an exquisite collection of modern and luxurious diamond rings and bridal jewellery, available exclusively at Ernest Jones. For Wang, this highly sought-after fine jewellery collection was a natural extension of her passion for bridal design.

Each piece in the LOVE collection is elegant, highly individual and is set with hand-selected diamonds. Every Vera Wang diamond engagement ring also features a ‘hidden’ sapphire which sits underneath the centre stone, whereas on wedding rings, the sapphire is located on the inside of the band. These distinctive design statements act as a symbol of everlasting love, giving each ring an even deeper meaning. All bridal rings are discreetly engraved with the Vera Wang LOVE logo and are accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.

Who is Vera Wang?

A native New Yorker, Vera Wang grew up in Manhattan’s Upper East Side and credits her mother for introducing her to fashion from a young age. Despite her passion for fashion, Wang grew up hoping and dreaming of becoming an Olympic figure skater. However, after placing 5th in the US National Championships and failing to make the US Olympic team, Wang hung up her skating boots and pursued a career in her other great love.

Wang attended Sarah Lawrence College in New York and during her summer break, worked at Yves Saint Laurent on Madison Avenue. It was there she met and impressed the Vogue fashion director, Frances Patiky Stein, who two years later upon Vera’s graduation, arranged for her to interview at Vogue. Wang was initially hired as an assistant, but shot up the ranks and became the magazine’s youngest ever fashion editor. After over 15 years at Vogue, Wang left to pursue her next step as Design Director for Ralph Lauren.

An illustrious career in fashion design

In 1989, whilst planning her own wedding, Wang found herself disappointed with the narrow and unimaginative range of designs for the modern woman. Ever practical, she decided to create her own dress and from necessity came a design philosophy that would showcase drama, intricate detailing and her contemporary, highly original approach to fashion design. Wang’s love for couture resulted in her opening her first bridal boutique in the exclusive Carlyle Hotel on Madison Avenue in 1990, where she quickly began to cater to lovers of high-end luxury, including celebrities and socialites.

Wang’s illustrious design career has since gone from strength to strength, and the Vera Wang name is now synonymous with outstanding bridal fashion. With lines ranging from wedding dresses to lingerie and the Vera Wang LOVE collection of engagement rings, wedding and eternity rings and fine jewellery, exclusively available at Ernest Jones.

“I believe in simple, elegant designs that enhance the beauty of any bride.”
