Custom Ring Series #2 - Sapphire Flower Set

Posted by Emma Gregory Boudah on

Happy Monday! After a lovely Easter weekend, Spring is in the air and we wanted to share a floral inspired custom engagement ring set we made recently.

In this case, the guy was Dave and he worked with us to make a one-of-a-kind ring for his proposal. His girlfriend is a girly girl who loves flowers and bright colors. At the same time she would never want anything too old-fashioned so we collaborated on this very unique design featuring a large cobalt blue natural sapphire held in place with a flower head setting like a lotus blossom enveloping the gemstone. 

I think this is a perfect example of a non-diamond engagement ring that catches the eye with its bright color and generous size. Sapphires are typically less expensive than diamonds but are nonetheless a precious gem.  One of the big 4 - Diamond, Emerald, Ruby and Sapphire. 

Below you can see a photo of the 3D print. We share stages of production like this with our customers when making a custom piece in order to make them part of the production process. In case, you are wondering, we use a Formlabs 3D printer - we love Formlabs - just like us they are an industry disruptor. In this case its a piece of machinery we use daily. In a later post we'll share the lessons we've learned about capital expenditures on our entrepreneurial journey.

 You'll notice in the featured image of the finished product that we added a slim ridge of milgrain detail around the bands. We're known for this kind of subtle detail. This was done by hand in-house and we feel like it really elevated the design. We also gave Dave a certificate from an independent 3rd party gem laboratory so he could feel confident in the authenticity of this beautiful sapphire. 

So how did this proposal go? In a very impressive moment of creativity Dave used magician's flash paper to unveil the ring....check out the gif he made for us below......Thanks for choosing us Dave - we loved making these and you remain our no.1 proposal story so far. Share your story below.
