Sometimes your relationship has a particular quirk or symbol that holds a special meaning for both of you. For Miles and Natalia, that symbol is a lion, a la Scar or Mufasa from Disney’s “The Lion King”.
Sue is an existing customer of ours who thoroughly loves Khay’s design aesthetic and passion for colour in jewels. She came in with some older pieces of jewellery she had inherited and loose small diamonds that had been salvaged from family pieces of jewellery. They still held sentimental value to her and she asked if we can do anything with them.
Sue likes large statement pieces and loves colour, After some discussion about stones and design options, we came up with the idea to use a rare – and drop-dead gorgeous – bi-colour tourmaline in a ring made with the gold and diamonds from her old jewellery. This was a great idea as it combined the sentimental older pieces with the new stone. The idea is poetic: the new big tourmaline represents of her love for her new husband, which is surrounded by the supportive structures of her family represented through the gold and the old diamonds. We freshened the existing gold up and added a bit more so that we could make this big statement wedding ring for her in Khay’s signature opulent style. The result speaks for itself.
This particular journey started about a year ago when a young man came in with a desire to create a ring that matches his love, in that it is unique and undeniably beautiful.
Melissa came in with a fairly specific idea in mind: she wanted a beautiful sapphire in a low maintenance design, with a low maintenance metal.
Charlie came in with a bit of a dilemma, she had found some designs she loved but couldn’t decide between two different styles.
Jacob came in to see me after seeing one of my sapphire ring designs online. He loved the ring but wanted to modify it a little to fit in with his lady’s personality and tastes.
James came into our store seeking something quite different for his lady. He didn’t want to give her a diamond as she wasn’t big on diamonds to begin with. Instead he wanted to use some themes and ideas that he knew she liked: she loved butterflies and the colours blue and green.
Grace and Lorenz visited us earlier this year and were a bit stuck on ideas for their wedding rings. Grace had some idea of what she wanted but Lorenz wasn’t quite sure. At the consultation we quickly ascertained that both Grace and Lorenz were heavily involved in academia and shared a love of books and fine art. We toyed with these ideas somewhat until I discovered that their surname meant ‘meadow’ in its native language. This concept tied in with some previously discussed ideas and the concept for Lorenz’s ring was born.
Dave wanted to do something meaningful for his pregnant wife to celebrate the arrival of their second child.
We met Kacie and Jessi a number of years ago, and when the time came for these two lovely ladies to get married, they asked us to create their rings.
