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.

Blue and Green – Love Story Part 2

Let’s hear this engagement story straight from Jenny.

Gary King, oro de rey, concierge custom design jewellery service, winnipeg jewellerAlmost 3 years later, after getting a cat, house, and a dog we thought it was time to meet with Oro De Rey for an engagement ring consult. I knew I wanted a different experience rather than going to a regular jewelry store. After learning about Oro De Rey’s services I knew it was the right “fit” for Mike and me.

We met with Gary together back in May to start the process. Prior to our meeting, I had shared ring designs with Gary that I liked best – it was all about the Emerald cut for me!

And then the wait game started … I figured the ring would take a while to make but then June passed, and almost July.

News was being delivered from my friends all around me, people announcing their engagements, baby news, new houses… So I was starting to really wonder where my beautiful engagement ring was!

On July 19th we said we were going to have a pool day. (I bought a kiddie pool that I fill up with water and use for the hot days to dip into while sun tanning)

Mike had to work in the morning but when he got home we had a few beers and were just hanging outside in our “pool” with our pup.

We were both standing in the pool just chit chatting about our night plans. We were going to a Neil Young tribute concert (The Young’uns) where a lot of his family I had not met yet were going to be at. So I said to him, “Well it would be nice to wear my new engagement ring to meet your fam!” He said, “Ya? Okay.”

I must have looked shocked, so he got down on one knee in the pool and proposed.”

We’re glad he did!

Budding Beauty

All custom design jewellery starts with a seed – an idea.   Once that seed is planted, we just have to wait for it to bud.  Take a look at this budding beauty.  Wait for it – once it’s in full bloom, you’ll be enchanted with its exquisiteness.

Adam Tells His Own Engagement Story

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.
