Can you imagine the ring that a video game creator would give to an environmentalist?
With this ring we face the challenge not only of capturing their story in a unique piece, but of doing it in a way that faithfully represents the ethics and ideals under which this couple lives.
The result is one of our favorite and most detailed rings, whose center stone is a beautiful vintage or "pre-loved" diamond from 1920!
They met by chance in France, in a bar with friends. Him, a boy from California working in the video game industry. She, a Franco-Paraguayan environmentalist and hydrogeologist. The chemistry happened naturally, and grew over time ... and since then, this couple has lived in different parts of the world together.
We wanted to represent adventure and travel. It has been meaninfull for them to live and work in many parts of the world; being both very passionate about knowing new places. In addition, we wanted to symbolize the joy of being together, the symbiosis that they make as a couple and the nature of their relationship. In a way, we also wanted to represent a fountain, since they have a beautiful memory together, sitting at the foot of a fountain in France.
How we did that?
Their engagement ring, which is one of our most detailed designs to date, is filled with symbols from their history: a spiraling filigree evokes joy like sparkling water from a fountain (an important symbol to them); organic and natural textures are present as a metaphor for symbiosis: when two organisms work together, complementing each other to be a strong team.
The general shape is inspired by the air routes that exist between France, Paraguay and California, alluding both to its origins and to its passion for travel and knowing the world. There is also, under the stone, a small drop that "falls" inside the ring, a metaphor for water, the element of life, the one that creates worlds and keeps them alive.
Since they are both passionate about protecting the planet, it was imperative to seek an ethical alternative to the center stone. This time, we found a beautiful vintage diamond, a stone estimated to be from the 1920s.
The final piece, in her words, "is a ring for a queen."
He proposed at one of Japan's must iconic landscapes, a portal that divides the world from mortals and gods...
and she accepted it with great joy!
Congratulations Chris & Naty !
