Nikki & Patrick

The Brief

When Nikki & Patrick approached us about creating an engagement ring for them they were initially unsure of the shape of diamond that they wanted. Nikki liked several shapes including Marquise as well as oval and the more conventional round brilliant. The one thing that she was sure about was that she wanted an unusual champagne coloured stone with tones of brown in it. After trying various designs with marquise and oval shaped diamonds the couple settled on one with a round brilliant solitaire centre stone in a tapered band of 18k gold.

The Design

Taking the initial sketch that we produced with the couple we then turned it into a 3D computer model so they could see exactly what the piece would look like when completed.

The Result

“With Donal's fountain of knowledge in the diamond field, he made the design and making of our ring very personal. We had the control of what we wanted and Donal executed to the highest of standards with no second guess. A totally professional approach from start to finish with no regrets on the final product.
When we sat down with him to design our unique ring we didn't know what to expect. After about 1 hour with Donal we had a number of designs and images on screen of which way we wanted to go. To have the trust in someone to who is going to craft this special ring for us was an easy thing to give as Donal put us at ease right from the start.
Every ones engagement ring is special but knowing that we have a custom designed engagement ring makes it even more special.

Could not praise and recommend enough the fantastic service of Parnelle Diamonds.
Thank you Donal.”
