I just don’t know what to make of Jane Austen’s English Ivy Diamond Engagement Ring. If you are a true Jane Austen fan, is this something you would want because it makes you feel like Elizabeth Bennett, or do you scoff at the crass marketing of that which you love?
The ornate ad copy doesn’t help: “From the era of lace and love, grace and honor. This is a ring that is both romantic and perfectly logical. The romance is in the details . . . it always will be. . . .The Jane Austen English Ivy Ring is a ring for the romantically inclined.”
I’m a Jane Austen fan, and I’m leaning toward scoffing (even though, admittedly, the ring is pretty), but I’d be interested to hear from anyone who has a strong opinion either way, especially anyone who finds this a charming tribute to the author.
