BEFORE AND AFTER

THE REDESIGN CHALLENGE:

Yasmin is a lucky lady. She has a new, six month old baby and a loving husband who bought her a vintage opal ring for her first Mother’s Day. 

She absolutely loved the ring, the thoughtfulness of her husband, and the beautiful opal at the center of the ring but, unfortunately, the ring wasn’t exactly her style. Yasmin was looking for something a bit shinier and more contemporary than the decided vintage look and feel of the original ring. 

She knew just what to do to make the ring (literally) sparkle, she wanted to add two small diamonds framing the opal to make it really twinkle on her finger.

In order to redesign the ring to add the diamonds and make the entire ring look more modern we had to replace the shank. We decided to keep the opal in a bezel setting and add two, smaller bezel setting in the new shank for the small sparkling diamonds. This new shank would replace the vintage inspired one of the original ring.

THE REDESIGN REVEAL:

Yasmin loved the new ring. It was simple and modern while still maintaining the thoughtfulness and care of her husband. We were glad to redesign this ring as a modern ring for a modern mother.
