Their love story started in spring and it bloomed through the summer, trips across the prairies, whispers of love, commitment and marriage. Words, actions and symbols.
The design for their rings needed to include not only the love they have for each other but also the love they have for their children.
So diamonds were chosen to represent her two sons, his son and daughter and the centre stone for each of them. The coming together of two families.
White and yellow gold were combined to acknowledge the traditional and the new.
Wax moulds were built, changes were made as concepts were seen in 3 dimensions.
The prairies continued to be crossed through the fall. Things need to be wrapped up. Plans for a future together need work.
But as the crops are reaped, and the legumes and grain stored or sold, wedding plans begin to solidify. Dates are set and venues are found.
Oh yes, rings are ready.
and so are they.
