I have to admit, this was one of my favourite commission to make! My customer Willi approached me with a very special commission. He wanted to propose to his girlfriend Andrea and had an idea in mind. He wanted a bespoke initials engamgent ring! You ask, what is this? Well, I made this word up, cause I’ve not seen anything like it yet!
The idea was, Willi wanted to include his and Andrea’s intials somewhere in the ring. We met up to discuss what options there were, I sketched while we were talking and came up with a simple but very efffective idea. The tips of the A and the W would be setting the stone. From the top view, the ring would look like most engagement rings, but when you looked at it from the side you would see their initials.
Willi knew from the beginning that he wanted the ring to be 18ct white gold and a 0.50ct brilliant cut diamond. I showed him a few different quality diamonds. I handcarved the setting in wax and got it cast in 18ct white gold. The setting was then put on a square band.
He proposed to Andrea with the bespoke initials engagement ring and of course, she said YES! I couldn’t be happier for them!
If you also want to propose to your girlfriend with a unique engagement ring that has your initals in it, just send me a message via the enquiry form below.
I love bespoke commissions and working closely with my clients.
