Having previously worked on Jocelyn’s engagement and wedding rings, when it came time to get an eternity ring she contacted me to see if there was a possibility of me creating a ring that resembled a forget me not flower.
She explained she had always loved the colours of the forget me not flower and thought it would be most appropriate combining the ethos of an eternity ring with a ring resembling a forget me not flower.
In researching forget me nots I found the flower comprised of 5 pear shaped cornflower blue petals and a centre yellow stamen.
I discussed options of blue and yellow stones that would be available with Jocelyn and advised the closest would be cornflower blue sapphire pears as petals and a canary yellow diamond as the stamen.
The ring was to be mounted in platinum and the setting and shank designed in a way to allow the ring to sit neatly with Jocelyn’s single stone diamond engagement ring.
Once I had sourced the pear sapphires of the appropriate shape and size, correct colour and good clarity, an HPHT (High Pressure, High Temperature) treated round canary diamond of correct proportion to suit the sapphires.
I arranged for Jocelyn to view the stones to make sure she was happy with my selection and the overall price.
Having viewed the stones and discussed the finer details she was happy to proceed.
Below are photos of the end result.
Jocelyn’ reaction was to say:
“It exceeded all my expectations and it was so sentimental as it was a ring to commemorate too, the birth of my children. I love wearing the ring and the number of comments I get are amazing! You listened to my requirements and superseded in every area. I can’t thank you enough Alan.”
