flush style stackable rings indicate the engaged couple is thoughtful, are careful planners and forward thinking? These rings fit harmoniously so they form one smooth, streamlined shape when worn together.
My friends have heard me say this so many times, but I have to say it again. I have the best job ever. The jewellery we make is so often a symbol of deep love and devotion at so many levels. The story behind this ring is an example of that.
The friendship between two women went back over 30 years. They shared so many memories and a rich history together. Over thirty years ago they gifted each other with matching rings. Years passed and one of the friends lost her ring. Sadly the other friend passed away and her ring – now somewhat bent and damaged was given to the surviving friend in memory of their friendship.
This is where I was privileged to take part in the story. We cut the ring in half in order to repair and preserve the top of the ring. We then mounted it on top of a gold family heirloom ring, creating a bond that represented the forever friendship.
She laid the 4 rings on her kitchen table for me to see. The garnet ring with the swirl design were a gift from her parents more than 25 years ago. The trio were gold and diamond rings that had been tucked in her jewellery box for 25 years. They are precious but never worn and seldom seen.
We talked through a number of ideas and decided we wanted to use just the content of the 4 rings. Beautiful stuff! Gold, diamond & garnet. Working together with our goldsmith we were able to create this gem of a pendant. It won’t be sitting unworn in the jewellery box anymore.
