This was such a special event, where so many came together for this engagement. We used a 1.16 carat radiant cut, conflict free diamond and surrounded it with 2mm diamonds, however we added the family’s heirloom diamonds on all four corners of the halo. Priceless.
These clients brought me their grandmother’s diamonds. They were small, but very important to them. I incorporated them into a ring for her and placed the heirloom stones at North, East, South, and West on the halo. What an incredible couple, and an incredible ring to match. As usual, all USA recycled metals, cast in the United State, using certified conflict free diamonds, and all USA paid fair labor.
Designing our commitment rings with Linda was a magical experience. Linda developed a vision for our rings that embraced our individuality, while evoking an eternal bond between us as a couple. She invited us to join with her in choosing the placement of the gems on our rings, and as we did so, she taught us how the gems and their placement can create vignettes and stories, guiding us to build into our rings our own stories of beauty, comfort, magic and union. Thank you.
