Going Back to Tradition


The honor of receiving the very first diamond engagement ring goes to Mary of Burgundy in 1477.

Her fiancé, Maximilian I, was a true trendsetter. We’re not 100% sure, but we assume he most probably didn’t go to a store, wandering around trying to figure out where to start. There certainly wasn’t a glass case filled with rows of rings and there was not a pushy salesman standing behind the counter.


Do you think Maximilian was asked what his budget was? Was he offered an explanation of the 4 C’s that left him more confused than ever? Was he told there was a sale going on only this week?  Was his iPhone battery weak and his internet down, where could he turn?

Mary of Burgundy and Maximilian shared something we hope to share with you at Kahro Diamonds.



We offer a truly old world approach to buying an engagement ring, where your diamond is much more than just an object – more than size, shape, color and price. Your diamond is part of your life’s story – irreplaceable and priceless.
