This is a variation of the Lovebirds Ring that we make for our Potlatch Ring Collection here at Walker Goldsmiths. This ring can be a Self sizer or as we’ve done here with crowns put into the open gap on top to accommodate setting stones. The Lovebirds story is a wonderful tradition of the Northwest Coast Native people.
Joshua contacted us in the middle of his fishing season off the coast of Alaska. His Sweetheart was in need of an engagement ring, in fact, he hadn’t even asked her to marry him yet!! Joshua had found our website and really liked the Lovebirds ring so we emailed back and forth ideas on how to make that ring extra special. He was having an exceptionally good season commercial fishing so he knew that now was the time to “spring for the ring”. He didn’t want his Sweetheart to get away!
Walker Goldsmiths jumped at the chance to help him out because we truly enjoy the excitement of this love business. We made this ring with the Lost Wax technique in 14kt White Gold, then Owen put his magic diamond finders cap on and went to searching coming up with 3 gorgeous diamonds that equal a carat to set in the center of the Lovebirds; a half carat center with two quarter carats on each side. Joshua wanted this ring to be 14kt white gold and that was no problem, and of course, we specialize in setting diamonds in 6 prong Platinum crowns for strength and durability. The effect was marvelous; lots of flash! We sent it off to him and waited to hear the news. Joshua and his Sweetheart loved the Custom Lovebirds Engagement or Wedding Ring with Diamonds and, “She said Yes”! Thank you, Josh, for putting us in the loop as we love to hear the good news.
