Tommy Cupitt's grandmother gave him this beautiful Ceylon Sapphire especially to propose to Libby.
Libby is a very stylish woman with a strong sense of taste and fashion. The brief was for something vintage/antique in style but with a contemporary edge.
Libby has lovely long slender fingers, so I chose to set the oval Ceylon Sapphire long, giving me just enough room to set the pear shaped diamonds either side finishing with round stones where the band meets the setting. By incorporating simple metal shapes into the setting and keeping the prongs as fine as possible, the ring has few gaps between the stones and a flowing design.
Made from 18kt white gold.
Libby was adamant to wait until the moment on their wedding day when they exchanged rings to see it for the first time.
As a close friend I was privileged to be invited to their wedding but rather nervous for Libby's reaction....I was delighted to hear a squeal of excitement and a thrilled gasp of approval when Tommy produced the ring.
The photo of this moment was captured perfectly by Elise Hassey of Lisse Photography.
