Last summer, when I went into Mary Ann Archer's bright and cheery shop, I saw an ideal setting for my wedding ring.
Gathering courage, I watched as Mary Ann designed a unique setting for my ring.
Part of my four ring set were two guard rings, one with rubies and one with sapphires, that my husband had given me when our children were born. Mary Ann incorporated these rubies and sapphires along with the diamonds and transformed the original design I liked into a similar, yet totally unique and exclusive design for me. My beautiful large diamond is bezel set and all others are what is called, bead and bright cut set. Adam expertly set each stone and now I can enjoy wearing my ring every day without fear of knocking out a stone.
I love my ring and receive constant compliments!
When Adam saw the rings and heart together, his first comment was that they looked pretty good just as they were. I knew then he and I were “on the same page” and I had found the right jeweler. He suggested setting my engagement diamond above the rings and figured out a way to allow my husband’s ring to move freely. It comforts me to slip my finger through his ring. I am totally pleased with the result. My setting includes both our wedding bands, a special heart given to me on our 15th anniversary and my engagement diamond. Perfect!
Thank you Adam for being sensitive to my ideas, wonderfully creative with the fine-points of design and ingenious with construction. People are always surprised and moved when they realize my beautiful pendant is a very special memory-keeper.
