Jewelry purveyors Doyle & Doyle will hold a monthlong exhibit inside their Meatpacking District store starting tomorrow and running through November 9th. "Sentimental Rings: From Birth to Death and In Between," co-curated by founder Elizabeth Doyle and jewelry writer Danielle Miele will focus on themes of love, longing, and loss in antique rings.
The pieces will be sectioned into five categories: Birth & Childhood, Memento, Love Token, Courting & Marriage and Death & Mourning. "Any ring can become sentimental, but some rings were created for a specific sentimental purpose and these are the rings we will be focusing on," Doyle explains in the exhibit's introduction. October's looking like a big month for stores dabbling in museum-hood.
