Bespoke Engagement and Wedding Rings in White Gold and Palladium, with Pink and White Diamonds

Bespoke Engagement and Wedding Rings in White Gold and Palladium, with Pink and White Diamonds
Another very interesting commission, working closely with Keith Sim, this set of bespoke rings were specially designed and made for Heather from Scotland and Chris from New Zealand, both now living in Australia. All the rings share the same Celtic knot design, Chris’s ring was made in Palladium while both Heather’s rings were made in White Gold. The engagement ring features a pair of white diamonds and a rare Australian natural pink diamond which Heather provided.
The couple kindly emailed the following when they returned home after their wedding;
“We were very apprehensive ordering our engagement and wedding rings over the internet especially being 22000 miles away in Australia, but our rings matched exactly the design we had in mind with a Scottish Thistle and NZ Silver Fern and made our wedding day that extra special. Rab and Keith offer a personalised service at very reasonable price and we felt very touched being invited to their home to pick up our rings and meeting them in person. We would definitely recommend them for any other couples that want something special made for their Wedding day and it is nice to see a home run Scottish business supporting the local community.” Continue reading
