A Very Special Ring
|Material:||9 Karat White Gold|
This ring was made for a very special person, my favourite person, my partner Hannah.
We met many years ago while I was on a trip back home and to be honest, it really was love at first sight. I can still remember seeing her smile at me as I walked into the restaurant. She has the most incredible smile. The more time I spent with Han, the more I realised this was the person for me, until one day I thought, “What am I waiting for?”, so I started to design a special ring.
I found myself doing the things so many of my clients had told me about to get ideas of what she would like, such as: stealth ring sizing of her finger, random conversations about precious stones and engagement rings. Eventually I came to the realisation that Han was a traditionalist and just wanted a simple, single diamond on a white gold band. Easy, right?
Well, I hadn’t made a ring like that since my undergraduate education some 20 years ago and I didn’t want to make a ring like every other traditional ring, so after a lot of trial and error I made this classic ring with a twist. A special ring for my favourite person.
This fairly mined diamond 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.
Oh, and…she said ‘yes!’ I feel lucky everyday.
“I am so delighted with the ring Laura designed and made for me. It exceeded my already high expectations! It was great to work with such a thoughtful professional who uses environmentally friendly materials and practices”
“I met with Laura to discuss commissioning a custom made sterling silver headpiece for my wedding. Everything in the shops seems so mass produced and I wanted something truly special. Laura asked all the right questions and created exactly what I wanted. She kept me informed the whole way. The end result was so beautiful, more than I could have ever imagined!”
“I love that Laura creates jewellery with an environmental conscious. My sunflower seed ring is made with love and I will always treasure it!”
