Winter Roundup: Part 1

Many belated posts are headed to the blog this week highlighting the secret (and not-so-secret) projects from the final months of 2014. I had so many custom designs across my workbench during the holidays and creating them was incredible way to wrap the year. Now that the proposals and gift-givings have passed, it’s safe for me to sit down and recount all of the personalized designs that went to loving homes during the winter months.

First up… a special wedding band set!

WP-Doyle-5

You may recall this deep blue beauty from the engagement of Matt and Lyndsay earlier in 2014. The couple wed in November at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs. To compliment her rose gold ring, we crafted a blue sapphire crescent band which contoured to her center sapphire. Matt opted for a comfortable, flat Tam Wedding Band with gently rounded edges and textured finish.

Shade Shifter

The color change nature of this natural sapphire is nothing short of intoxicating. In daylight she shines olive green and grey. It’s subtle and sultry. Indoors, she changes her tune to a lively lilac. For me It was love at first sight.

This stone was a no brainer for the gentleman who commissioned this ring– it was mined in his home state of Montana and seemed as unique as his bride-to-be. An 18k mounting and a halo of twinkling diamonds was all it needed to be ready for her hand. He’s very happy to report, she said ‘yes.’
