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.
“My partner and I engaged Laura with the task of commissioning a unique piece of jewellery. Laura was loosely briefed by my partner and totally took the concept and ran with it. Communication was forthcoming with frequent updates along the way, including illustrations and photos of concepts. The final product blew all involved away! Couldn’t recommend Coral Covey any more thoroughly!”
“Laura worked with my husband to design my engagement ring and I was struck by how she got it all so right without consulting me at all. It is beautiful, unusual and incredibly special to me. I now own a number of Coral Covey pieces. I’m an official superfan!”
“The balance of modern and tradition in Laura’s work makes her pieces stand out as modern, yet timeless”
