No ordinary engagement ring...

I love making and designing engagement rings. I love being able to really meet a person and hear their story to make their custom ring extra special, which is why I was really excited to meet Medhi at the pub, of all places, to help him design the perfect engagement ring. 

He found my brand on Instagram through a friend and contacted me with a short timeframe to design and make an engagement for his now-fiancee, who wanted something unconventional and unique.

He chose a parti sapphire, a rare, reflective gem that reminded him of their mutual love for the ocean. This particular gem is one of Australian decent, ethically sourced in Queensland. The stone itself is a melange of blues, greens and yellows with distinct bands of colours. 

They both like gothic designs and architecture, which was incorporated in the ring with with gothic twist on the popular six claw setting in recycled gold. 

Congratulations, and I hope she loves the ring as much as I enjoyed creating it! 

Here is the feedback from the lovely Medhi,

"I was recommended Hayley by a friend when i started looking for the right artist to make the ring I was to propose with, I was so glad for the recommendation as Hayley proved to be amazing in all aspects, I had never done anything like this before but I felt so welcomed and at ease, she really listened and understood where I was going and then also pointed me in the right direction with even better ideas and suggestions which all turned to be stunning in the end result, it gave me the confidence to go into my proposal knowing I had something so beautifully crafted and exactly what I was looking for."
