In Autumn last year I had the pleasure of being asked to make an engagement ring for a couple of my best friends. I loved the process of designing and making something that will hopefully last them a lifetime.
Both of them being farmers and extremely hardworking so I knew that the ring had to be a tough little thing! I chose 14ct White Gold for both it's warm, pale colour and it's durability, the diamond is nestled within the textured setting which protects the stone by rising up around it. It was important to me that the setting wasn't too prominent as I knew this would make the stone more vulnerable.
14ct White Gold and Diamond
The style of the ring was chosen by Simon during our design meeting: a textured, White Gold Solitaire Diamond (to match Gemma's birthstone) with detailing around the setting. After trying out a few different designs in the workshop I settled on a straight edged ring shank to contrast with the organic textures in the setting. One of my favourite things about this ring is how it looks from different angles, because of the organic nature of the setting it never looks the same twice and I hope this means that Gemma will never get bored of it.
Thank you both so much for choosing me to be a part of your day.

Gemma decided to test out the ring out immediately by wrangling a rogue sheep, which, I am told the ring survived beautifully, despite the mud!
