FREE ENGAGEMENT RING? IS IT POSSIBLE?
All you have to do is survive being my friend for 20 years!
MEET MY BUDDY KIROTAR (LEFT). THE HANDSOME BUM ON THE RIGHT IS YOURS TRULY.
It has been years since these beautiful photos were taken. Kirotar has replaced most of his body fat with muscles and lost basically all of his hair BUT he found his soulmate! In December, after years of being „just“ boyfriend and girlfriend, he finally decided to make it official. The timing could not have been more perfect since they are having a baby any moment now. Literally any moment now since they are already in a hospital and I’m pretty sure a small head is entering our world as I’m writing this.
Deciding to make it official is one thing but actually doing it is a whole nother story. And for that story you will definitely need a ring. This is where I came in. I had made a lot of different rings but not a gold one with two diamonds. Turns out this is exactly what the future bride had dreamed of.
I HAVE ALWAYS LIKED THE MOMENTS WHEN I CAN SAY “THIS IS MY FIRST”OR “FIRST TIME EVER” AND LUCKILY I CAN SAY IT QUITE OFTEN.
Everything starts with the ring size. How to get it right? A few days after talking about the ring I got a photo from Kirotar. The caption said “Can you get her ring size from this?”. OH DEAR LORD! (facepalm) He sent me a photo of a bandage that hadbeen around her finger. Where did he get if from? The TRASH CAN! My mind was totally blown but all I could think of was that he must reaIly want this.
The easiest way to find out someone’s ring size is to measure an existing ring. Luckily that’s what Kirotar finally did.
FIND HER OLD RINGS AND GET THE APPROX. MEASURE FROM THERE.
He already had an exact design in mind so we didn’t have to start inventing anything new. He wanted two diamonds and two bands around the finger, one of which had to be inspired by the surface of my Forged Series rings. As always I started to craft the ring from wax.
A week later it was time to find the right bling. I didn’t know anything about diamonds but luckily I had the most pleasant experience and learned a lot about the stones, stone setting etc. I finally chose two 0.18 carat brilliant cut diamonds.
DIAMONDS ARE A GIRL’S BEST FRIEND!
As I said before I love new experiences and “the first time” moments so I present to you my first gold 585 ring with 0,18 carat diamonds:
