"A dear supporter of mine, Jacque - also the owner of a beautiful boutique in Charlotte, NC called Juelerye - had been talking about her broken engagement ring for several years. The original engagement ring had a special, sentimental story and significant meaning but the design wasn't suiting her lifestyle and her personality...and several diamonds were missing or had fallen out. Who has time for that?
Her sweet, and sneaky, husband got with me to design her her very own engagement ring + wedding band combo. She had no idea what was coming and I got to be a part of a huge surprise and an in-person reveal!" - Kristen
When a piece has a story and memories attached, but needs to be refreshed for the current lifestyle, that's where we have a blast. Make it a surprise and its even better. That is exactly what happened with this piece. Kristen created a beautiful and sturdy setting for this emerald cut diamond so her client wouldn't have to worry about it ever coming out of the setting again. Accented with little glittering diamonds from the original ring and complete with a coordinating band, this set knocked our client's socks off!
While the process is raw and rugged, as you can see above, the final product below is shiny, clean and ready to roll on all the daily adventures of this dynamic client! She no longer needs to worry about stones popping out and, with the sturdy construction, this ring set will be a part of her journey for the rest of her life!
