janessa + arthur’s engagement ring
The holiday season was such a whirlwind I didn’t have time to post all the custom projects I was working on, and this one should not be missed! This ring was made for Janessa + Arthur and features a beautiful 2.03 carat Round Brilliant diamond set in intertwining wires of recycled Platinum and adorned with the smallest of micro-pave.
Janessa writes: “Something that was always important to us was that we wanted this engagement ring to be the only ring that I would ever wear; in other words, we did not want to cut any corners and have to replace it ten or twenty years down the road, and we were also mindful that I did not want stackable rings.”
Janessa felt that she wanted to wear only one ring for the rest of her life which would be “a piece of art.” She says: “I spent a lot of time leading up to our engagement looking at different engagement rings, both from commercial sources like Tiffany’s, as well as some lesser-known designers, until we found you and knew you would do a perfect job.”
“The whole process of wanting to get it perfect is also a microcosm of a theme in our relationship that we always try very hard to make each other happy, going to whatever lengths necessary to do so… I have always taken great pleasure in design, be it in picking out furniture and artwork for our apartment or picking out outfits for myself. The prospect of designing a beautiful engagement ring was therefore something that I was really looking forward to, and Arthur wanted to give me that great experience in addition to the wonderful ring.”
Congratulations to Janessa and Arthur on your engagement! I loved working with you both on this very special ring and am looking forward to seeing you both again soon! xo
