Using Inherited Diamonds for a Bespoke Engagement Ring
We specialise in creating bespoke diamond engagement rings and gemstone engagement rings. Our customer Damien was preparing to propose to his girlfriend Jen and opted for a Robert Bicknell Fine Jewellery Proposal Ring. This temporary engagement ring is crafted in sterling silver and Swarovski crystals, meaning you can have the wow-factor proposal and then return to us later for a completely handmade engagement ring.
When Damien and his fiancée returned to our Chislehurst workshop, we talked them through the bespoke engagement ring process and settled on a combination of rose gold, diamonds and sapphires. The pair also brought along an inherited five stone diamond ring so we could reuse some of these sentimental stones.
Something Old, Something New
There were two facets to this fantastic customer commission: a bespoke engagement ring and an inherited five stone diamond ring. At Robert Bicknell Fine Jewellery, we can incorporate heirloom diamonds into new bespoke jewellery creations, so you can keep some of that sentimental feeling with you, wherever you go.
Working with Damien and Jen, we presented them with options for a romantic 18ct rose gold engagement ring, set with a sapphire as the centre stone, surrounded by two of their five inherited diamonds.
The Finished Sapphire Engagement Ring
Using this as a base, we sourced a beautiful pear-shaped green sapphire for their unique engagement ring centre stone. By using their inherited diamonds, we were able to accent the sapphire with two round brilliant cut diamonds.
“This was such a special trilogy engagement ring to make. There’s nothing better than sitting down with couples to create their dream engagement ring, combining colourful gemstones, heirloom diamonds and precious metal. Damien and Jen were a wonderful couple and this ring really reflects their relationship”
