Incorporating an important Ruby into An engagement Ring

My client came in to see me to enquire about engagement rings, but he had a dilemma: He wanted to buy his girlfriend a diamond engagement ring, but she had always mentioned the fact that she loved rubies and if he were ever to propose, then she wanted a ruby.

After a bit more investigation, it transpired that their daughter was called Ruby and so it was a very important emotive reason for wanting to incorporate a ruby into the design.

We showed our client a number of design ideas and he instantly fell in love with a solitaire design with diamond-set shoulders; we discussed a pretty and traditional engagement design featuring an unusual open 4-claw setting that is set with a small accent diamond on each side of the under-bezel. Christopher then suggested that instead of diamonds, the two accent gemstones could be rubies and that was it...decision made and ring created and presented to him just a few weeks later.

We were told there were tears when he proposed and more tears when she noticed the rubies set beneath the main diamond.

That is the beauty of bespoke. If something is important to you, it can be incorporated into the design either in a subtle way, or as a main feature.
