he left us suddenly and unexpectedly, doing what he loved. she has chosen to honor their unending love with a redesigned ring that joins his wedding band to her original engagement ring.
i had the honor to know this couple for a very long time. when he was ready to propose, he came to me to help him select the perfect diamond and setting. he chose well – a beautiful CanadaMark diamond. the particular stone he picked out has the Canadian maple leaf engraved on the girdle (circumference) of the diamond. it is not a huge stone but, wow, what a beauty!
Canadian stones are from new mines and tend to have high color and clarity. some mines even issue a dossier with the date of the stone’s discovery and the carat weight before and after cutting.
the original engagement ring was elegantly simple in design – a four prong wire basket setting, with the only decoration being Celtic knots on either side of the diamond.
