We sat in B’s dining room to work on this Re-Creation. She had her mom’s original engagement ring and wedding band and wanted to use them maintaining their original charm. Using the diamonds from B’s engagement ring, we made another perfect matching wedding band.
She wanted some width so we used a wide white gold band setting the three rings into the white gold band.
Mom’s diamonds, her diamonds and some creativity made an exclusive, elegant and meaningful ring that both her daughter and granddaughter will one day cherish.
We met at the Starbucks close to his office at Winnipeg Square and discussed the design. At his dining room table, we selected the perfect Diamonds. She was out working that Saturday afternoon. You saw the Diamond he chose.
While we were all waiting for spring to arrive in what seemed like an endless winter, our goldsmiths worked to create this beauty. He took part in each stage, ensuring it was just everything he wanted because she deserves the best.

The design for their rings needed to include not only the love they have for each other but also the love they have for their children.
So diamonds were chosen to represent her two sons, his son and daughter and the centre stone for each of them. The coming together of two families.
White and yellow gold were combined to acknowledge the traditional and the new.
Wax moulds were built, changes were made as concepts were seen in 3 dimensions.
The prairies continued to be crossed through the fall. Things need to be wrapped up. Plans for a future together need work.
But as the crops are reaped, and the legumes and grain stored or sold, wedding plans begin to solidify. Dates are set and venues are found.
Oh yes, rings are ready.
and so are they.

High school sweethearts. That’s what they are. Been together for nine years now. Share so many of the same friends. Have done lots of crazy together. Have lots of room to share more love.
So there’s two cute cats.
This summer they added a cute pup to the family, too.
While the camera is snapping, he drops to one knee, red leather box in one hand and asks his high school sweetheart to marry him.
She said yes.
We thought she would.

THE LARGEST PEARL IN THE WORLD, the Pearl of Allah or the Pearl of Lao Tzu as it is now called, has a length of 9.4 inches and weighs 14 pounds and is found in the Philippines. It got its original name from a Muslim diver who found the pearl with its surface having an image of a turbaned face so he named it “Pearl of Allah”.
It is not a gem-quality pearl, but is instead what is known as a “clam pearl” or “Tridacna pearl” from a giant clam.
Gemologist Michael Steenrod in Colorado Springs has appraised the pearl at $60 million (1982) and $93 million (2007).
