A revitalized engagement ring after 15 years
When choosing an engagement ring, we’re sure we all knew to pick something timeless. Sometimes, however, we can’t see past the excitement of the moment or trends of the era and, 15 or so years down the line, we’re ready to try something new for the ultimately in everyday jewelry.
This is exactly what happened to Rui, who celebrated her 15th wedding anniversary this year. After 15 years with a complex, high-set ring of green amethyst and blue sapphire, set in 14k white gold. Rui had found that the white gold did not adequately highlight the beauty of the stones and that the high-setting caused dirt to settle, making the ring look messy without consistent upkeep and obscuring the beauty of the stones. Instead of all the clutter, Rui wanted something clean and simple.
So, to celebrate her milestone, Rui came to us to create the custom-made modern and contemporary ring she wanted for the next 15 years and beyond.
Materials: 14k yellow gold with blue sapphire rectangular cut and green amethyst trillion cut
*These stones are Rui’s, and the stone price is excluded from the total price. Also, we were able to sell her old gold, and deduct from the final cost.
