My very own Engagement Ring - The whole story

On 11th December 2021 Edd proposed to me at Old Harrys Rock in Dorset, our home of exactly one year, with 3 loose salt and pepper oval diamonds he had sourced on his own.

After asking around for what my dream ring would be - no easy feat for the boyfriend of a jewellery designer/maker and considering what he also liked he decided a 'trilogy' style was perfect and for me he knew it had to be salt and pepper diamonds.

The Challenge was then down to me to create the ring. I was so desperate to be able to wear it, but knew I wanted to get the design absolutely perfect and something I would love and wear forever.
I knew I wanted something timeless, something that was recognise-ably design by me and yellow gold. I also wanted Edd to love the ring.

I opted for 9ct yellow after looking at different options, its just a beautiful antique hue of colour and for me you cant beat it. I also chose to have a scattering of diamonds around the band to match my wedding ring eventually.

The ring was drawn up by Jewelcast on CAD and then cast. I textured the band to create a more organic looking texture and finish, something that has since inspired a lot of new ideas and plans :) I was somehow braver to try things on my own ring.
