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 smiled all the way back to Winnipeg.
So they were going to spend their 19th anniversary in New York. Elegant dinner – he pulled an Oro de Rey box out of their backpack and presented her with the diamond he thought belonged in her wedding ring.
She loved it. We set it in her original ring upon their return. She loves it. He’s smiling. We’re happy.
As 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”.
So on December 23, she followed 23 candles into the room beautifully adorned with 23 dozen red roses, fire blazing both in his heart and the fireplace, soft music playing and … well the rest belongs to their telling.
Of course, she said yes.
Well guess what? That’s next month. Finding that perfect ring is a big deal. It’s that one piece of sparkle planned to be worn forever. It doesn’t have to be difficult or stressful.

For these rings, a daughter used her father’s wedding band and we added the original diamonds from her mother’s engagement ring.
Another generation was included in this next unique ring. Grandmother and mothers’ bands were fused together to be worn by the daughter. Priceless.
They 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.
So I was just heading out to the 1st fairway with my wife when we bumped into a lovely lady about to take part in the same golf tournament.
“Gary, I love my ring”, she said as we met. (You’ll remember this ring from previous recent pictures). I smiled and turned in time to meet her future sister in law who joined in, “Gary, I love my ring”. (We designed her engagement and wedding rings 3 years ago) Out from behind a car, mom popped out and chimed in, “Gary, I love my ring”. (We redesigned her wedding ring some years ago).
We had a great chuckle and I walked away thinking how honoured I am to be considered the jeweller of choice by two generations of family members. Three beautiful rings adorning three lovely ladies hands.
