Last January, I received a voicemail from a wonderful lady called Heather who was enquiring about having her engagement ring designed. I returned her call and she invited me over to her apartment to discuss wedding jewelry design. It was a charming evening where, not only did I meet her tabby cat, but I also met her fiancé Cassim. Over glasses of wine, they shared their love story with me: it was over 20 years in the making-since their high school years.

I always feel fortunate to have a private connection with the couples that come to me for engagement rings and wedding bands. It's always an opportunity to hear a love story. Who wouldn't love that? 

Heather would end up buying Cassim an antique wedding band and asking me to design and craft a complimenting 18k gold wedding band. I love that the bands aren't identical but highly complimenting. A reflection of the couple: they had a real sense of history, tradition & family yet they seemed highly individual. As if there was room for both their stars to shine equally. Isn't that true love? Wishing them all the best on their love journey.
