WHAT: Royal Asscher Stars of Africa ring
WHY: It's not your typical diamond solitare, but you'll love this Royal Asscher creation all the more. Gorgeous conflict-free diamonds float freely (snowglobe-style!) in the sphere of this ring, for a unique look that's still completely luxe. What's even more alluring? The Stars of Africa collectino was inspired by a trip that Lita Asscher took to Sierra Leone--and proceeds from sales of the rings (which are also available in rose and white gold) will go to support charities in Africa, improving infrastructure and heightening awareness of the mining conditions.
