Kerstin and Alan are both Danish, living and working in Denmark and Sweden. As a medieval historian, professional scholar and researcher, Kerstin wanted a ring with a vintage look but one that had artistic restraint. Alan is an advisor to one of the Danish ministries, and both agreed on a 'modern vintage' look. Upon receipt of her doctorate the tradition in Sweden is to wear a special band ring with a repeated leaf pattern.
My first inspiration was to incorporate this design in the shank, but then Kerstin posted an antique ring with a fleur-de-lis basket to hold the diamond. Fortunately this motif worked beautifully in a modern variation to secure the Asscher cut diamond I provided, and she wanted it set on a 45 degree angle, which injected energy and movement into the design.
We had the opportunity to connect for lunch in Southern California which was an unexpected pleasure!
