I try to be respectful & hold off on posting engagement projects until I know my client has popped the question, and sometimes in the process of waiting, I forget all about the project! I made this ring over a year ago and got word that, just recently, Jacqueline said “yes!” to Alex! Congratulations you two love birds!

This project was particularly fun because the whole family was involved, yet, I never met the happy couple. Not yet, anyway! Alex’s folks, Gail & Rick who live in Maine part-time, found out about me online and came by my studio to check out the work in person. They had lots of questions about the custom process, and after their fact-finding mission, they passed on all the info to Alex, who, if I remember correctly, was living in Texas. Ultimately, he liked what he heard from his parents and they brought me a treasured family diamond to use in the ring. After a little back-and-forth via phone & email, we settled on a design in 14K gold, and the rest is history! Wishing the happy couple many years of love and laughter.
