Everyone is different


1st February 2019

The original design 2018

I try not to project my tastes in jewellery onto my customers. Some people hate halos and others love them. Making something that they like is what it is all about. I made the halo engagement ring above in 2018.

The main diamond is a .80 carat cushion cut diamond. Personally I like the size of the diamonds around the halo that the customer chose. We all thought not too big and not too small, just right.

Going bigger in the halo 2019

Fast forward to 2019 and I was making the same design around another .80 carat cushion cut diamond. However this time the customer wanted the following changes:

  1. larger diamonds in the halo - the same size as those in the band.

  2. another diamond was also added to each side of the band.

I prefer the smaller diamonds in the halo to the larger but everyone is different and what I like is not important. Being able to create what my customers like is what it is all about.
