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.
She had her Mother’s Wedding Ring and gifts from her Father. She wanted to combine them to create a ring to wear with her wedding band.
It’s kind of like keeping old friends together but bringing new energy to that friendship.
She’s got the yellow gold back – perhaps it will be incorporated into the next project.
We’ve designed and created beautiful jewellery for customers across Canada made easy with the use of technology. You can see your design in 3D, chat through Skype or Facetime, have the prototype available to view through overnight shipping and in some cases I will arrange personal delivery.
A fun experience was meeting a customer from Regina halfway between Winnipeg and Regina in Virden. Our final meeting was to deliver the Engagement and Wedding Rings and have a game of golf with my customer, his father and future father-in-law.
Modern Design – centre point 1.2 ct brilliant framed by 2 swirls and bar of 14 kt Rose Gold – a striking accent.
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.
I’m grateful and proud.

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.
All the best Gary and I will be in touch soon.
