Custom Wedding Rings Designed by the Bride
Custom wedding rings designed by the client. I received the sketches over the internet with detailed telephone conversation and emails.
The goal was to create a pair of rings that represent the vision of the Lady getting married: a stag and doe facing each other with a diamond between them. The over all feel was to be medieval, strong and enduring. The shanks were to be heavy and in sterling silver with a touch of gold. Being as they were to be on the finger of someone who is allergic to gold yet have the gold incorporated in the design, the gold banding is raised off the finger. The sketches were to be "as close to the original design" and still look recognizable as deer.
After the design was approved, I carved the rings by hand and cast the main shanks in sterling. Gold banding was cast separately for the man's ring while the woman's ring was adorned with gold wire. The settings are of white gold. All assembled with diamonds and blue zircons.
They are now happily married with their new rings they designed themselves, created by hand from start to finish.
