If you’ve been dreaming of a Leonardo DiCaprio suggestion as his Titanic times, we now have some insight into what sort of ring the star may pick out for his prospective bride.

Los Angeles-based jeweler Vrai & Orofamous for the delicate designs, recently established its first wedding set, Vow. And while its timeless styles are sufficient to make us swoon, the simple fact that DiCaprio is the active investor in Vrai & Oro’s parent company, Diamond Foundry, makes our hearts sing since it means that all of the set’s diamonds can also be conflict-free, sustainable, also grown in California.

Together with five core designs–each available in yellow, white or rose gold, with or without a pave diamond ring–and a exceptional at-home try-on version (à la Warby Parker), Vow is perfectly appropriate for millennial brides that crave fresh, classic designs and value environmental and social awareness. Oro & Vrai founder and director Vanessa Stofenmacher saw a hole for brides, that are looking for something aside from the alternatives at title earners, or the ring settings offered by mass-retailer sites at the engagement ring market.

“I didn’t really see an viable choice that had great design and was concentrated about endurance,” Stofenmacher says. “I think we are also just living in a culture that’s changing traditions. We’re seeing a great deal of girls being involved with the proposal process now. We do not always have to wait for men to pop up the question from the blue.”

Even though “disrupting the industry” may be an overused term, Vow attempts to do exactly that. With its try-on version that is at-home, couples can opt to have models of around three ring layouts shipped for free to them in order that that they can find a feeling of the way the rings feel, look, and fit in their everyday lives. For ladies, it can offer the capability to test on rings before letting their man know what they adore, and it can be a means to include relatives members and friends . “Purchasing online is a massive question mark for a good deal of individuals, especially with this purpose, so the try-on version is something to relieve these pressures,” Stofenmacher says.

Bearing Oro’s & Vrai signature minimalist approach to design, also wearability in mind, the rings have perfectly angled prongs that are not overly blunt or too pointy the simplicity curved bands, and also a low jewel. Sourcing the diamonds to match Vow’s layouts was a tough endeavor because Oro & Vrai is dedicated to transparency and wished to find rocks that are truly sustainable they could stand behind. So when Stofenmacher stumbled on Instagram upon Diamond Foundry it was a serendipitous moment.

A Silicon Valley startup, Diamond Foundry actually grows its diamonds in its own S.F. headquarters. By recreating the surroundings in which diamonds develop, using a plasma reactor, Diamond Foundry can grow diamonds, atom by atom, that are the same as mined diamonds, with no the environmental and human impact. “Some people have this notion that it’s a synthetic diamond or a fake crystal but it’s really exactly the same. It’s a diamond. It’s kind of like hydroponic plants: it’s just grown in a different manner,” says Stofenmacher.

Plus, because Vrai and both Diamond Foundry & Oro are retailers, their prices typical than conventional healers. Now that’s a option we feel good about.
