This is not a Hot Topic/Claire’s knock-off. Up-Scale English jeweler Steven Stone designed three engagement rings based on the three witchy sisters from the Hocus Pocus movies, and they are gorgeous. They have also already sold out running between $3,000 and $6,000 each.
The Winifred ring, based on the oldest Sanderson sister, features an emerald, flanked with pear shaped sapphires on either side to contrast with her red hair. According to the press release, “the emerald cut centre stone has a four prong setting, which lets the vivid emerald be the star of the show. To complete the look, a gold spiders web sits on top of the emerald. Spiders webs serve as a reflection of the passage of time and the patience of the spider awaiting its prey, which is incredibly fitting for Winifred since she waited 300 years for a virgin to light the Black Flame Candle during a full moon on Halloween.”
The Mary ring, representing the middle sister, is composed of mostly rubies. “Set on a white gold band, Mary’s ring features a central red ruby, surrounded by a combination of pear shaped rubies and round diamonds, with silver spiders webs detailing on either side.”
The Sarah ring, representing the youngest sister, is composed of amethysts and diamonds on a rose gold band.
Said Maxwell Stone, creative director of Seven Stone, “with the original being such an iconic film, we were keen to celebrate the release of Hocus Pocus 2 with something unique. ‘The Sanderson Collection’ features three engagement rings – one for each of the witches.
The distinctive gemstones in each ring match the colours that each witch wears, but we also took inspiration from their eclectic personalities – from using a rose gold band to encapsulate Sarah’s feminine nature and pear shaped rubies to represent the emotional bond and connection Mary has with her sisters, to the use of a four prong setting in Winifred’s ring, ensuring that her vivid emerald is the star of the show in the same way that she is.”
