Two Secret Rings
I meet lots of lovely couples in my line of work. Sarah and Robalyn are a top-notch example. Couples often come to my studio to design rings together, but for their project each party commissioned a ring unbeknownst to the other.
Sarah reached out to me in January to create a solitaire for Robalyn. She caught me just in time for my annual gem-buying trip in Tucson. With her color palette in mind I was able to sift through vendor after vendor, and parcel after parcel until I picked out just the right diamond for their needs. We set it in 14k yellow gold with a flat, hammered band.
Robalyn returned the favor by creating this ocean-toned band for Sarah. We selected a handful of sapphires in blues, greens, and silvers and agreed on a layout for them to be set into a 14k yellow gold band. We pulled in the same hammered texture from her solitaire ring so the finished pieces would feel related.
Once the cats had been let out of their respective bags, the lovely couple sent me this snap of the two rings resting together along the California Coast. Congratulations Sarah Robalyn!
