This platinum and diamond ring, designed for my customer, has a bittersweet story. Upon the birth of my customer’s first child, a daughter, her mother came to visit and help out with her new granddaughter. However, while visiting, a clot in her mother’s leg dislodged, causing a thromboembolic event so traumatic that she unexpectedly died. Of course, my customer was devastated for a very, very long time.
My customer kept her mother’s diamond ring for many years with the thought that she would like to incorporate the larger diamond from her mother’s ring with the diamond from her own setting which often caught and snagged fabric. Initially, she thought she might have to purchase a third diamond to accompany the other two. However, I suggested a sophisticated, slightly modern approach, using only the two diamonds, mother’s and daughter’s, symbolically linked in love for all eternity. This is how the finished product (a size 3 3/4!), turned out.
