Shane & Claire

The Brief

Shane & Claire came to us looking for something a little more unusual in a diamond engagement ring. Claire had always loved engagement rings with 3 diamonds in the centre and wanted to know could we help her to design a 3 stone engagement ring with a combination of oval and round diamonds. after some discussion we sketched out a diamond ring with a large oval centre stone flanked by a smaller round brilliant on either side in a band that was also set with round brilliant diamonds. We then also sketched a wedding band which matched the engagement band perfectly.

Initial rough sketch of the engagement and wedding ring pair.

The Design

Taking this sketch together with the requirements for the materials (diamond cut,clarity and colour as well as precious metal etc) from Shane & Claire we precedded to build a 3D computer model of their design. This allowed us to produce images of the ring from all angles so that Shane & Claire could see exactly what their rings were going to look like. We then assembled the different images of the diamond rings and their details (size, diamond attributes, precious metal etc) into a single pdf that we call our Design Document and sent it to the couple for approval.

The Result

“Value for money was my main concern but once we got in touch with Parnelle Diamonds and outlined what we wanted this wasn’t really an issue as they offered much better value for money than a high street jewellers.

We were able to work with Donal on a design that we liked that was within our budget so we got something that was of high quality and design but at a much better price. We were also delighted to be involved in every single decision in regards to the rings along the way from the ring designs, type and quality of the diamonds used as well as how and when we took delivery of the diamond rings we couldn’t have asked for better communication from a business.

I would definitely recommend dealing with Parnelle Diamonds and have done so on many occasions as they represents value, high quality and a high standard of personalised service. They deliver what they say they will and when they say they will. I catch my wife admiring her diamond rings on a regular basis and showing them off to others. Isn’t that all the proof you need to work with them?”

If you're not sure of your ring size just let me know and I'll send you a Free Ring Sizer in the post.
