It's not everyday you get the request to make a very contemporary wedding ring to sit alongside a very vintage engagement ring.  What a challenge, one I was very excited about.

Her engagement ring required a fitted shaped wedding band due to the design of the setting holding the antique European cut diamond.  The engagement ring, purchased in an antique store in Buenos Aires, was made in the 1930s with a much older diamond in my absolute favourite old style cut. 

The brief from her was that she wanted to pair it with something of equal presence; very contemporary; loves blue; they got engaged on a mountain hike in South America so wanted to incorporate a mountain-like texture; and of course it had to still compliment her engagement ring! 

So the results are quite fantastic and I ended up loving everything about the combination.   She ended up choosing a gorgeous Australian blue sapphire feature stone, mined and cut in Australia in a freeform geometric shape. 

Her fiance chose a complimentary hand carved mountain texture in his wedding band.  Subtle and unique.
