Tea, Muffins, Kitchen table and Diamonds

It’s a cold, casual Saturday afternoon and my clients are comfortable around the kitchen table.  We’ve got the essential ingredients for our conversation – tea, muffins and – yes, of course diamonds.  Custom design jewellery starts with diamonds 101, because custom design needs to be in your hands – so you should know your options before you make your decisions.  We all make the best decisions when we are comfortable and relaxed and in a space where we feel most at home.  So, the tea and muffins are a great comfort food and the kitchen table is a pretty great centre for creativity.

Invite Oro de Rey to your kitchen table.  We’ll bring the diamonds and custom design ideas.

Seasonal Enjoyment

I really love taking pictures of my work.  I spend time looking around my world – sometimes inside, sometimes outside and try to find something magical that will bring the beauty of our jewellery and our environment together.

 

Every season offers a special view.  I think using the seasons as my backdrop offers part of the story too.  It tells the story about the time of year when the jewellery gift was bestowed.

Taking pictures of my work and sharing those pictures with you is also my way of honouring the true craftspeople I work with.  Gemologists and goldsmiths who take pride in the designing and creation of these precious, sometimes delicate, always spectacular works of art.IMG_0069

Too cold to go out.

Traditions

oro de rey, gold of the king, winnipeg jeweller, skates, traditions, trim the treeI love the traditions our family has around Christmas.  This weekend the Christstollen was baked.  The fragrance of fresh sweet bread wafts through the house.  We picked up a tree, brought it in to thaw  and watched the branches spread out as they thawed.

Yup, I love the tastes, smells and sounds of our Christmas traditions.  What are some of yours?

Adam Tells His Own Engagement Story

The plan went off without a hitch! I waited until Brandi got home from work. Our daughter didn’t want to go to sleep but Brandi’s magic got her to sleep with relative ease.  Brandi came back into the living room and sat down to enjoy a TV show. She asked me if I could get her a glass of water and I said sure. I came into the living room with her favorite bottle of wine which had the velvet Oro de Rey bag hanging on the neck of the bottle. She asked me why I had a bottle of wine and I told her it was to celebrate. I got down on one knee and asked her to marry me. 

The tears flowed, the ring fit beautifully, she LOVES the ring. She has been calling friends and family and ranting and raving about the ring.

Thank you so much for helping to make this moment possible with the wonderful work you do. As I said yesterday, the experience was one of a kind and the entire process was one I will never forget and I look forward to the days ahead when it comes time for wedding bands.

When you get a chance I would love to show her the beautiful pictures you took of the ring in the snow outside while you were freezing and with the beautiful plants in your home.
