A Ring fit for a Princess
|Material:||9 Karat Rose Gold|
When I finished this ring I was struck by how perfect it would be for a princess. Rose gold and diamonds wrapped in a beautiful story…the stuff dreams are made of.
Sue and Ramon approached me at the Heide Artist Market where we had a lovely chat about wedding rings. The two were planing their wedding and wanted some guidance on custom handmade rings. Some months later we arranged to meet in my workshop to refine the details and discuss what this ring would mean for the two.
It was the second marriage for both of them, and they wanted a ring to symbolise the two families coming together in celebration. The large white diamond symbolises them, while the two cognac coloured diamonds represent their families. If you look closely you can see the 9 carat rose gold ring has a vine that wraps all the diamonds together with a leaf on each side, accented with a few dewdrops.
This diamond was sourced from a company that abides by the Kimberly Process. “The Kimberley Process (KP) is a commitment to remove conflict diamonds from the global supply chain. Today, participants actively prevent 99.8% of the worldwide trade.” To read more about this incredible initiative click here.
When I finished this ring I stamped it with my makers mark and hallmarked the gold carat. Naturally this piece came complete with my official authenticity certificate stating the gold and diamond carat.
When I delivered the ring to Sue and Ramon, Sue cried when she opened the box. It was lovely to see how much this ring symbolised to her. As we chatted she once again became teary as she explained how important it was for her to support local artists. Lovely people.
