Los Angeles, CAOctober 23, 2014 – Today Robbins Brothers, The Engagement Ring Store announced its Blogger & Style Expert Ring Reviews, which includes many of the retailer’s most popular and sought after engagement ring styles this Fall. Ranging from the three-stone ring with princess cut diamonds to halo designs with rose gold accents, some of your favorite style experts weigh in on their favorite engagement ring bling.

The featured engagement rings include a radiant-cut halo setting from Kirk Kara, a favorite of Mimi LaRue, Houston radio host and creator of Dripping Sexy. “The radiant center stone complemented by the parade of sparkly diamonds surrounding it is the perfect combination for a YES. It’s a fairytale romance between delicious and beautiful. The two had a love child.”

Harmony Walton, founder and editor of The Bridal Bar prefers the Candlelight Collection’s yellow diamond cushion-cut ring. “I love the sophisticated and standout look of a yellow diamond, it says something about the spirit of a woman. The ribbon twist white gold double halo ring is a great blend of vintage detailing and modern color, to make it timeless and on trend at the same time. Swoon!”

Jennifer Chan from The Fabulous File, who prefers subtle but classy, was equally excited to share her take on the rose gold Tacori engagement ring. “The rose gold setting flatters all skin tones, while the larger-than-life halo design is chic and tasteful, and just so happens to be a favorite among celebrities—and for good reason!”

Not only women have an appreciation for fashionably elegant engagement rings. Russ Weakland, the senior LA reporter at Hollywood Life shares his choice. “With the impact that this Divine 2.5 carat princess cut ring shows, it is proof that you are intending to make a moment that will last a lifetime. If love could be bottled up in a ring, this would be the one.”

“The Blogger & Style Expert Ring Reviews is our fun way, through the eyes of fashion experts, to present a variety of options to our customers who are planning a marriage proposal this time of year,” said Shannon Daly, director of jewelry for Robbins Brothers. “This year we saw an increased interest in rose gold, blue sapphires, yellow diamonds, and the vintage halo remains popular for those who prefer a big look.”

Big Brother 16 Contestants Jeff & Jordan Get Engaged with Robbins Brothers Ring

Just Engaged! Sending a warm congratulations to contestants Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd who were recently engaged on CBS’ Big Brother 16. When Jeff visited the Woodland Hills store, it was such a pleasure helping him find the ring that Jordan would adore. He was so excited and even a little nervous picking it out, but our wonderful engagement ring consultants, Amy Butler and Moraima Alamillo, helped put him right at ease. It was a ring-shopping “party” as the ladies assisted Jeff with his decision on a gorgeous cushion-cut halo diamond engagement ring from the Robbins Brothers Vintage Collection.

These unique features give customers peace of mind and added identification security for their specific diamond.

Throughout the month of August, the company will celebrate the Echo Diamond’s anniversary by asking customers to share their Echo Diamond engagement ring photos on social media including Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook with the hashtag #EchoIs10. “When I first saw the Echo I was amazed at how sparkly it was,” said Kim Smith of Woodland Hills, CA. “I immediately knew it was the diamond I wanted for my solitaire engagement ring setting.

Last week I had the lucky honor of hosting a little soiree, Diamonds & Desserts, with the fabulous team at Robbins Brothers Glendale and Simon G. – all to benefit Dress for Success, an incredible organization that empowers women entering the workforce. They help those who are in need of suits and accessories for interviews and workdays but beyond that, they also train, teach and support women seeking the tools to secure and succeed at a new job. Such a great non-profit, I highly recommend checking it out – you can donate your time, your gently worn work clothes and get involved in lots of ways to help others get back on their feet!

So back to the party. Bloggers, media and wedding experts gathered (and gathered belongings to donate to Dress for Success), to celebrate with diamonds and what else?! Dessert!

Simon G.’s amazing team brought out the best of the best for guests to try on (and swoon over). My personal favorite was this fabulous canary diamond engagement ring. I might have worn it just a little too long!

I also loved this cuff – perfect for a destination wedding. It looked like I was wearing coral made of diamonds!

Rose gold was certainly trending around the room for the night, not unlike on brides down the aisles too! Partygoers also enjoyed trying on this gorgeous ring encrusted with yellow diamonds.

But this night wasn’t just beautiful jewels! We also got to taste test sangria from the Los Angeles wedding location, Noor and try sweet treats from Some Crust Bakery. And if guests could put a cupcake down long enough for a manicure, Serve the Goddess offered up a pampering experience right there in the store!

I had such a great time getting to know new faces and seeing old, friendly ones and I know the group had a blast too – especially those who won raffles prizes like this fun book for couples by relationship expert Natasha Burton (and of course there were some jewels given too…)!

Big thanks to everyone who came out for the night and congrats to all the big jewelry winners – some ladies went home with some very nice (and sparkly) swag! And thank you to Robbins Brothers for including me in such a lovely evening!
