Allyson had a chunky diamond ring sitting in her drawer for years. Although she once loved the chunky pave band ring with rows and rows of small diamonds, she no longer thought it fit her style and languished in a drawer for years before Allyson came to us.
Allyson wanted to make sure that she could use all of the diamonds from the original ring but knew that another chunky ring was the opposite of what she wanted. Allyson figured that, in order to lighten and modernize the design of the new custom ring, that we should focus on creating multiple, stackable rings that could be worn together or separately for varying levels of diamond impact.
Another important goal of the redesign was to create a sweet ring for Allyson’s six-year-old daughter with some of the diamonds from the original ring.
We started our sketches by working on the concepts for the stackable rings. We offered Allyson a couple of different options of band width as well as band shape, with both flat bands and curved chevron bands.
Allyson decided on a sketch that featured three rings with slightly thinner bands with diamonds set from her original ring but that also left over three diamonds that could be incorporated into a design for her daughter’s ring.
Now that we knew we had three diamonds to work with for the smaller ring, we explored ideas in shape and concept. Seeing as Allyson’s daughter is only six-years-old, we wanted the ring to reflect that and offered up designs with flowers and clusters before we finally decided (with Allyson’s daughter as a key decision-maker) that the ring would feature a heart as its main design feature. Allyson’s daughter also knew that she wanted 14k rose gold over 14k yellow gold -- a young design aficionado!
3D CAD model and casting
After all these iterations we were finally ready to begin designing the rings in our 3D CAD and then casting both of the rings.
Allyson loved her new stackable rings, thrilled that she could choose to wear one, two, or all of them at once. Allyson was also so pleased that her daughter was able to have a sweet and sentimental ring that both suited her age and personality but was also something that connected her to her mother with the three diamonds.
Materials: 14k white gold with round diamonds in a bead setting and 14k rose gold with round diamonds in a bead setting.
