I want to introduce a couple that wanted to create not one but two rings. They each wanted to create an engagement ring for their partner that was like no other and celebrated their relationship. This process is remarkably simple to do using our on-line custom system hosted by our design partner Stuller. (All photos credit Stuller).
The designs below required the assistance of a jewelry designer using more tools than are available to you on line, but uses the same process you can use to design your own on line.
Meet the Creative Couple
Both Keiara and Dan are artists determined to bring bold hues, layers of symbolism, and deep connections to life not only with their work but also with their custom-designed engagement rings. The couple of nine years wanted unique rings that no one else could buy at an affordable price.
It Was Meant To Be
Their unique engagement story is one for the books. Instead of waiting for her partner Dan to pop the question, Keiara decided to take matters into her own hands and create a custom design engagement ring to propose to him. We love a confident woman! She created his ring with a designers help and came up with a design that was just as unique and spectacular as her now fiancé.
Great minds think alike, but soul mates are on the same wavelength. Before Keiara had the opportunity to pop the question to her partner, little did she know, Dan was beginning to design her future engagement ring! One of the key features Dan chose for her stunning ring was a beautiful custom cut Garnet to use as the center stone. He knew that he wanted this deep, passionate, red gemstone to be the star of the show, and that fantasy cuts are better shown off in a darker colored gemstone than a diamond. He wanted something eye-catching for his beautiful beloved, and that is precisely what he got.
Speaking of eye-catching, the shape of an eye was cut into the Garnet to represent a “lover’s eye,” symbolizing a love that is always watching and never leaving. Both of these rings are full of symbolism and have deep connections to many things that the couple loves. It’s important to mention that after Dan accepted Keiara’s surprise proposal, the two of them worked together to design Keiara’s engagement ring with a designer. The design process of her ring was a group effort between the three of them and is truly a work of art from all angles.
When Keiara and the designer were designing Dan’s engagement ring, she also originally chose a custom cut Garnet as his center stone. A coincidence, or are they just PERFECT for each other? Unfortunately, during the first stone setting process, the Garnet broke. This tragic occurrence gave Keiara the difficult decision of choosing a different stone to replace the Garnet. After some consideration, the designer and Keiara decided to go with a beautiful salt and pepper diamond. This was a great choice since Dan worked with his hands a lot, and the salt and pepper diamond is a much more durable stone than a Garnet. They chose a diamond in an elongated hexagonal shape, a fantasy cut in the same shape as the original garnet center stone.
Harmonizing As One
When it comes to symbolism, Keiara’s engagement ring has an abundance of it. With her beautiful Garnet being the center stone, the radiant center setting represented the sun. The prongs holding the gemstone into place are set with diamonds and convey almost a halo of stars. As you follow the sides of the shank, you are met by a scrollwork crescent moon on both sides. You then come across a vibrant line of rainbow gemstones down the side of the shank. The couple and the designer created the engagement ring with many sculptural details as well as a mixture of both 22K yellow gold and platinum. It was important to the couple that the rings had plenty of their own elements, but that it was obvious that they were a set when seen together.
Blending elements of her design aesthetic with the couple’s vision, the designer was able to design rings that speak to Keiara and Dan’s visions and personalities.
Often when people design an engagement ring for another, there are elements seen throughout that speak to their style, memories that they’ve shared, and even a glimpse of their personality shining through the design. Keiara and Dan’s special rings are unique on their own but also come together as a stunning set. Not only did the designer do an outstanding job of embracing the design process for this couple and helping them have a one-of-a-kind experience, but she was also able to help two dear friends take the next step towards their future together.
