almost 10 years ago she was diagnosed with breast cancer. she endured the grueling rounds of chemo, radiation and surgeries complete with all the fears, heartbreak, tears and victories.
her wedding rings needed to be cut off her finger at one point in her treatment, and it took her some time to be able to look at her wedding set after her course of therapy. she intuitively felt she could not wear the original set but wanted to have the rings redesigned to mark this new chapter in her life and celebrate her strong and happy marriage bond.
the original set was traditional in the configuration – very symmetrical. the wedding set had three diamonds in the engagement ring and seven diamonds in the wedding band.
this was a project that was months in the making. during a long conversation at the beginning of this project, she presented her requests for an asymmetrical, organic design in white gold. she is a gardener, landscaper and connected to mother earth, so once i took the stones out of the original mountings, i began to play around with them with that in mind. i kept seeing waves or ripples and bubbles with loads of space between.
