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:

Beautiful and looks exactly as expected

perfect fit, perfect ring, Fiancé loved it and said yes :)

Stunning!

I bought the Velda ring in rose gold with alexandrite stones and couldn’t be happier! Konstanze helped me determine how it might look as a shadow band with my engagement ring (pictured). It looks better than I even imagined and I am so thrilled! Konstanze was great at keeping in touch, answering questions, and it didn’t hurt that it came so nicely gift wrapped. My husband and I did all our wedding jewelry in-person at our local store (pre-pandemic) and I didn’t know what to expect with an online experience, but it was very personal and turned out perfectly. Thank you!

Beautiful Craftsmanship

I cannot express how excited I am about my beautiful ring. It is exactly as anticipated. I ordered a small (4.25) thin (3mm) hammered edge band, with a comfort edge.

The customer service was excellent! Shipping was fast. I love buying from small businesses, but the level of detail and amazing customer contact was phenomenal!

Wonderful creative design

I LOVE my ring!!! It is so beautiful- bright silver with the awesome pattern would like to get two more narrow ones to wear with it!!

Perfect tiny stud earrings

Exactly what I wanted: grey (my favorite color) diamonds set in platinum (hypoallergenic), lightweight for every day. Thank you!
