One of my favorite clients stopped in last fall to talk to me about replacing his wife’s wedding ring. This turned out to be a delightful custom project.
Years ago my client bought a marquise diamond set in 14k yellow gold for his fiance. About three years ago the original ring was lost. My client stopped in to surprise his wife with a new wedding ring. He knew he wanted to buy her another marquise diamond, since that was the type of diamond that was set in her original ring. We picked out a gorgeous 1 carat marquise and decided it would be best to set it into a solitaire mounting versus trying to decide what his wife would like. He presented the new marquise at Christmas and after the first of the year we started on customizing a beautiful ring. My client is a doctor and has to take gloves on and off on a regular basis. Therefore the ring design needed to be very smooth. We also determined she really liked blue sapphires, so we decided to incorporate these into the new design. We used two trillion cut sapphires highlighting the center diamond. We found a design using bezel set stones, which my client really admired. We also decided to use platinum, because her original ring was platinum. After working on the design aspects we came up with a very practical ring that fit her daily lifestyle and made a very subtle fashion statement. This is the second project using marquise diamonds we have done this year and we are really enjoying working with this gorgeous cut diamond. Here are some pictures from this custom ring project.
This was an incredibly fun and rewarding project. My clients are the most delightful people and enjoyed the experience of creating a custom wedding ring as much as we did. The most rewarding thing for us is that my client got a new ring that she will be able to wear on a daily basis that really portrays her personality and lifestyle.
