Sweet Cyndy, a dear friend of mine, whose son is also one of my son’s “bestest” friends from school, approached me a few weeks ago with a very meaningful and sentimental request – to create two graduation rings for her daughters out of one very special and dear family heirloom ring. The ring in question featured two gemstone citrine hearts – perfect, one stone for each girl!
The result: two rings, each featuring a treasured piece of family history, soon to be proudly worn by two very accomplished young ladies, as a token of their proud parents love. Congratulations, Kiyomi, graduating in just a few weeks – and Minobu, you are not very far behind (but your ring is ready for your big day). I feel so, so very honored to have been part of this.
Nathalie’s ROSE IS A ROSE IS A ROSE IS A ROSE RING.
When another one of my sweet and dear friends Nathalie contacted me to let me know that their beautiful home had gotten broken into a second time in one year and all her jewelry was taken - my heart went out to her. Treasured jewelry memories, gone.
But Nathalie, let me tell you, is a very strong friend of mine and after seeing a post I did of my latest custom-cut gemstones, she asked if I could create her dream ring with one of the gemstones that caught her attention – a stunning Pink Star Quartz – to celebrate life, a happy marriage, being a proud mom to a son who shines in their life, amazing professional accomplishments, good health as well as, pssst, a big, upcoming birthday worth celebrating. YES! Here's to you, liebe Nathalie! A ring that embodies all and more and while working on it - became you.
