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.

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.

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”.
