Taylor and Hart has announced the launch of an 18ct, diamond-encrusted ‘Haribo’ engagement ring, whose creation was inspired by the popular sweet.
The ruby-red band includes 224 rubies and is topped with an 18ct yellow gold basket of 40 diamonds and a 2.70ct cabochon yellow sapphire to create the “ultimate proposal ring for your childhood sweetheart”.
The jeweller joked that you could buy over 1.2 million of the Haribo sweets for the cost of this ring, which has a price of £25,000.
In a statement, the jeweller said: “Inspired by childhood dreams of marriage and ‘forever love’, this Haribo-inspired ring features a vibrant red and yellow colour palette that harks back to an age of fun, play and being home in time for tea before the street lights come on.”
Kate Earlam-Charnley, design director at Taylor and Hart added: “With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we thought it was the perfect time to bring this brand new design to life. Combining custom-cut rubies and a syrupy cabochon yellow sapphire, this ring is one of the most ambitious we’ve ever created and definitely one of the most original.
“Made for the daydreamers, the hopeless romantics, those in search of something a little more pure and innocent, this ring is the perfect expression of love. It’ll certainly make a great story while also saying ‘love is forever’. We can’t wait to hear ‘Yes’ stories from our customers across the world!”
