We’ve designed and created beautiful jewellery for customers across Canada made easy with the use of technology. You can see your design in 3D, chat through Skype or Facetime, have the prototype available to view through overnight shipping and in some cases I will arrange personal delivery.
A fun experience was meeting a customer from Regina halfway between Winnipeg and Regina in Virden. Our final meeting was to deliver the Engagement and Wedding Rings and have a game of golf with my customer, his father and future father-in-law.
As high school sweethearts they were inseparable. Lots of time to get to know each others’ characters, likes and dislikes – really seems it was growing up together. Lots of travel through school trips as well as sharing vacations with each others families. University meant they no longer saw each other daily but their hearts continued to grow fonder.
He started planning a year before – even met with me to discuss what kind of engagement ring she might like. But this fall he set it all in motion. We designed this spectacular engagement ring and then he started to set “the romantic event” in motion. You see, their number is 23. First date, special days and events seemed to always fit with “23”.
So on December 23, she followed 23 candles into the room beautifully adorned with 23 dozen red roses, fire blazing both in his heart and the fireplace, soft music playing and … well the rest belongs to their telling.
We sat in B’s dining room to work on this Re-Creation. She had her mom’s original engagement ring and wedding band and wanted to use them maintaining their original charm. Using the diamonds from B’s engagement ring, we made another perfect matching wedding band.
She wanted some width so we used a wide white gold band setting the three rings into the white gold band.
Mom’s diamonds, her diamonds and some creativity made an exclusive, elegant and meaningful ring that both her daughter and granddaughter will one day cherish.
I’m seeing a growing trend to combine the past with the present in order to create a memory that will be cherished into the future. The thought-full-ness of the jewellery that is shaped into a new treasure is the key to this exclusivity.
For these rings, a daughter used her father’s wedding band and we added the original diamonds from her mother’s engagement ring.
Another generation was included in this next unique ring. Grandmother and mothers’ bands were fused together to be worn by the daughter. Priceless.
