Carey’s ring took just two weeks and an “army of craftsman” t create. “What is really most interesting about the ring are the proportions—the stone is so large, but we were able to create a beautiful balance with the overall simplicity of the design,” Rosado said.

Rosado has worked with Carey for more than 25 years and he knew that she would love the sparkler. “I wanted to give her something super sophisticated and something that took away all of the embellishments that a lot of people use when they design engagement rings these days."
