Legacy of love

His first email told me he had an idea to combine a beautiful pear shaped diamond from his mother’s ring to make an engagement ring for the woman he wanted to marry.  Great idea.  Could we work the details between phone calls and emails – he being in Regina and I in Winnipeg?

Isn’t technology grand?  Sending photos back and forth we designed a beautiful ring and wedding band – a true labour of love.

The ring is held in white gold.  The engraved wedding band is the perfect complement.

Concierge service included delivery in Regina at a local Tim Horton’s.  She said yes that evening.

Girls just wanna have fun…

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 flew out to Regina wedding band, concierge jewellery custom design, winnipeg jewellerto make the delivery. The bride was expecting one band. The groom decided she should have two.  They were to be like a halo to surround the centre stone.

I smiled all the way back to Winnipeg.

Blue vs Green – Love Story Part 1

collage bombers banjoThey met at the Winnipeg Blue Bombers game in September 2011 in the Rum Hut. Mike and his buddies are hard core Bomber fans and the day Jenny met him, he and his buddies were all in their “Blue Suits” even wearing their spray painted gold shoes. The Bombers were playing the Roughriders this day and it was a big game. Jenny is not a huge football fan but really wanted to go to the game.  A friend of hers had an extra ticket but if Jenny wanted to go she would have to go dressed as a Roughrider fan. So Jenny decked out all in Green Machine Gear.

Who’d have thought they’d end up on the same turf?

Come back tomorrow to find out how he proposed.

The Two Shall Become One

2 wedding bands one with inscription from GenesisLast weekend was the wedding of one of our customers. Perhaps we should say, “one of our friends” because they start off as customers but it doesn’t take long for them to become friends.

I worked with Dave last summer to design a beautiful, elegant ring for Nicole.  This spring we started to think about the Wedding Bands.  Their faith is central to their relationship and so they chose an inscription in Hebrew from the Book of Genesis which was hand engraved in Dave’s wedding band.

But that wasn’t all.  When Dave presented Nicole with her Wedding Band and Engagement Ring, she found a second band to completely  surround her Engagement Ring.  He’s surrounded his love for her with his eternal commitment.

I gotta say, he’s got it right.

Anticipating

Brilliant diamond, diamond studded shank, gold engagement ring, oro de rey I received a call from a  young man looking to purchase an engagement ring.  I love that first phone call because that anticipation and enthusiasm is so palpable.  I have the privilege of letting my heart skip a beat with the excitement of it, too.  It never gets old.

So, here is where we are today.  He’s picked out the diamond.  He’s chosen an exquisite mount with diamonds along the shank.  And now he has to wait patiently for it to come together.

Imagine what it will look like when it all comes together.
