What happens when the daughter of a fine custom jeweller gets engaged? The answer is one of the most special and gorgeous designs we've ever made.
Elli had grown up surrounded by the beautiful jewellery in her dad's shop, so when her long-time boyfriend, Mike, decided to propose this summer he knew that the her engagement ring had to be special.
Elli and Mike met and fell in love 4 years ago on Sombrio beach when Mike built her a steam-hut in the sand. Their mutual love of the outdoors led them on many adventures including a 6-month backpacking trip through Latin America where they learned so much about one another and strengthened their bond tremendously. When Elli and Mike had the opportunity this summer to travel back to Nicaragua, one of their favourite Latin American countries, Mike knew it would be the perfect place to finally propose.
On the last day of their trip, Mike asked Elli to take a walk with him through a mango jungle and up to the top of a nearby water tower. There, in front of the amazing view of the surrounding jungle and turquoise blue ocean, he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. They spent the next 3 months designing an engagement ring as beautiful as their love.
Set in 18K white gold and 14K carat rose gold, this curving, natural design features a gorgeous 0.5 carat centre diamond (her mom's generous contribution) and twenty sparkling accent diamonds. No detail was spared in this design, which looks amazing from all angles. With her dad's expertise and her mom's diamond, this ring is truly one of our most special creations and something Elli will treasure for the rest of her life.
