Samantha contacted me wanting to transform her diamond engagement ring into a statement ring that she could wear comfortably every day blending both the Mimosa and Peacock collections.
With the size of Samantha’s little fingers in mind, the challenge was to make sure proportions were spot on, maintaining its comfort. Designs were sent back and forth and a lot of conversations were had to ensure we had this design spot on. With Samantha’s engagement ring on its way to me from Washington, I had to search for a large pear shaped cabochon amethyst and then a small sapphire, emerald and amethyst to sit with this and the three diamonds Samantha already owned. The colours needed to be really vibrant, as even the little stones needed to make a big impact.
The engagement ring arrived and the diamonds were beautiful. Being able to position all the stones together, meant we could tweak the designs slightly to perfect it even more, ensuring sizing and colours all matched harmoniously. We decided to go for 18ct yellow gold but keep the diamonds in white gold to help maintain their vibrancy amongst the other stones.
Making this, felt like making a little sculpture. I loved that it had a slight art nouveau feel as this is a style I particularly love. Bringing Mimosa and Peacock together was something I was looking forward to and the result was a piece I felt truly proud of.
