Romance in Roses

rose with ring closeAs 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”.

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.

Gratitude and Pride

Every custom designed engagement ring we make fills me with gratitude and pride. Gratitude for the trust that is placed in Oro de Rey to design a ring that is meant to be worn on the bride’s hand always and pride at the beauty of the finished product.  My clients, my colleagues and my friends hear me say it all the time.  I have the best job ever!

Often my clients come back to me and share their engagement and wedding pictures with me and I can’t stop beaming.  Someone else has captured the beauty of the ring(s) and found yet another way to show it.  So of course, when I may, I have to share it with you too.  Thanks to Victoria Anne Photography for sharing these pictures.

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.
