One thing that I noticed about Italian accessories is that Italian women do not wear engagement rings. I have yet to see someone with an engagement ring on. However, the interesting part, is that in Venice and the Isle of Capri there are so many high end jewelry shops. There are engagement rings galore and other beautiful necklaces, earrings etc. We had stopped by a small shop. Kim had noticed a HUGE engagement ring. The shop owner was kind enough to tell us that the ring was a yellow diamond and was 13 carats. Yikes! Who is buying the jewelry if not Italians? That ring is the ring on the lower right. The other solitaire is a yellow sapphire.
