Handmade Proposal Box for a Tourmaline Ring

September 16, 2013 2 min read

I love when customers share their proposal stories with me. It feels great being a part of their big moment. I especially love when they send me pictures of the new ring on their loved ones hand.

 

I received one of those very special Thank You notes from Clinton some time ago. He created a personalized box for the ring I made. He took some previous hints from his girlfriend Geraldine to his heart about her loving something handmade from him. Here is his sweet box:

 

 

The quote in the card is from an email she sent him a while back. So thoughtful and romantic. What a sweet couple. I am sure she said yes.

 

 

The ring that's in the box has a stunning raspberry color Tourmaline set in 14k yellow gold.

 

 

 

 

I have to say I really love the warm color combination of pink tourmaline and yellow gold. It was a real treat to my eyes to work with it. Such uplifting colors.

 

Here the ring in process:

 

The design was carved in wax and then cast in 14k yellow gold.

 

Carved wax models are mounted on a sprue base as a preparation for casing.

His ring is on the far right, the single wax model on the base.

 

All rings cast in various precious metals. His ring is the yellow one in the center.

 

 

 

Then starts the tedious process of grinding, sanding and polishing before it's time to prepare the setting for the stone.

 

Sanded and pre-finished ring.

 

And the finished ring:

These 2 lovely platinum rings for Kristy and Ryan recently came back for a resizing. I finally got a chance to see them as a set since they were ordered separately.

The oval moissanite ring 💍 was a custom design with a floral-inspired detail under the bezel setting. It's paired with a Maggie ring with diamonds. Love how they look together. 💖
