Debs & Doug
Debs & Doug came to us looking for a diamond engagement & a diamond wedding ring pair as they wanted the design of the two to compliment each other. We spoke to Debs about what she was looking for in a diamond engagement ring, she wanted a cathedral set solitaire with a very delicate band (1.5mm) of platinum with a half circle of diamonds in a scallop setting to allow in as much light as possible. She wanted her wedding band to match the band of her engagement ring exactly in terms of thickness and being set with a half circle of diamonds. We then took her ideas and drew a quick sketch that captured her requirements and would allow us to design a 3d model of her ring.
Initial rough (very!) sketch of Debs' engagement and wedding rings.
We then took the sketch and all of Debs & Doug's material requirements and budget and using our 3d rendering software produced a 3D computer model of the diamond engagement and diamond wedding ring. Using this model we produced the Diamond Ring Design Document below which outlined exactly what the ring would look like as well as the type and quality of all materials that would go in to making the diamond ring. We sent this document to Debs and Doug and when we received their approval we put the ring into production.
“We didn’t know what to expect before we took the plunge and got in touch with Parnelle Diamonds. We were worried about a lot of things including; not being able to handle or see the diamond rings, we also didn’t know much about diamonds and we were worried about describing our requirements correctly.
What we found after speaking with Donal was someone who is extremely friendly and easy to deal with as well as knowledgeable and whose can-do attitude really helped us to trust his judgement.
Being able to design the diamond ring ourselves was the best part for us and then of course seeing the quality of the finished product. We’ve had numerous compliments on the ring, I always see the sparkle catching peoples eye and it’s nice knowing that we were part of the design process which makes that much more special.
We were also very pleased with the price as Parnelle Diamonds were able to produce the same quality ring for a lower price than any of the other quotes we got from the high street jewellers”.
** Update **
Doug came back to us a month or so before the couple were due to be married and said he wanted to some diamond earrings that he could surprise his bride to be with. We were able to oblige him with a pair of beautiful diamond studs that he gifted to Debs on the morning of their wedding day.
** Update #2 **
Debs & Doug sent us some gorgeous images from their wedding.
