Building on a memory

So take an all around sports guy, who’s work life encompasses working with Silicon Valley computer types as a successful product development executive in Vancouver and who’s play life includes pursuits like rock climbing in the BC rockies, white water rafting, skiing and Iron Man competitions to name but a few.

Add a love for family and a particular bond to his grandmother for whom he has ever so many fond memories.

Then take a ring, which she willed to him and which he wanted to find a way to wear himself.

Having all of that, his family in Winnipeg suggested he talk to Oro de Rey about using the stone from grandma’s ring too.

We did one better, by incorporating the whole ring into a new one.  He can still see his grandmother in it, but it’s become a strongly masculine ring.  It kind of feels like his arms are enfolding her – the way he could in her last years.
