Megan and Kris came to Walker Goldsmiths hunting for a unique Custom Engagement Ring. They’re both nature lovers and most comfortable with symbols of the earth on their important jewelry. This, of course, is very appealing to me, the garden and outdoors girl. Megan kept talking about wanting a ring that looked like branches! She’s an excellent artist so I had her draw some pictures of her ideas and then I carved it in wax. Lots of fun for me making this Custom Ring!
Megan approved the wax, Owen invested it and lost wax cast it into Sterling Silver then finished it beautifully. We soldered in a 14kt white gold crown and set a gorgeous oval Sapphire. The branches are textured like bark with leaves with veins shaped and carved. The intention was to antique the Sterling to enhance the natural look. Walker Goldsmiths insisted on a 14kt White Gold crown for the Sapphire so that the crown would not get the antique patina and would continue to give the Sapphire the best light to show it’s beauty.
Kris is also a talented individual, his talents lean to entertainment and presentation skills. He told me that he is drawn to the element water so his desire to get his Sweetie a Colored Gemstone, especially a sea blue Sapphire was his heart’s desire. He loves the energy water gives him and I can totally relate to that since we intentionally choose to live by the sea for this very reason. Also, Megan is originally a Montana girl and Sapphires are a famous natural stone from Montana. Me too and I love Sapphires! Kris with his presentation skills proposed to Megan on stage at the Bellingham Upfront Theater that highlights live Improve Shows. I saw the video clip and was very touched by his wonderful proposal on stage. Definitely pleased Megan and she did say yes!
Thank you Megan and Kris for letting Walker Goldsmiths share in your excitement and happiness with this nature inspired Custom Engagement Ring!
