He’s a pretty awesome guy. I know ’cause his wife’s whole body smiles when she talks about him. They’ve moved lots because of his important work but the boys and her are ok with that ’cause he’s a pretty awesome guy.
That’s why she wanted an awesome memento to commemorate the next move – for his squad. There were 2 rings that had been worn by his grandparents. You know, his family who helped shape him into that awesome guy. She had those rings shaped into a ring with his squad’s logo. Pretty sure he loves it. Pretty sure it will continue to be in the family for years to come.
I got a call that the bride wanted to bring her bridesmaids from Regina to Winnipeg for a weekend of fun. She thought it would be the perfect opportunity to meet with me to design her wedding band. So between mani’s and pedi’s, shopping and sauna’s, and her bachelorette party we met to work on it.
I smiled all the way back to Winnipeg.
So they were going to spend their 19th anniversary in New York. Elegant dinner – he pulled an Oro de Rey box out of their backpack and presented her with the diamond he thought belonged in her wedding ring.
She loved it. We set it in her original ring upon their return. She loves it. He’s smiling. We’re happy.
We showed our Facebook followers two beautiful rubies and asked them to suggest what fine jewellery we should make and how might they design it. We listened and here is our first piece – a stunning Ruby Ring set in 14 kt white gold.
Elegant. Sophisticated. Brilliant.
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.
Of course, she said yes.
