Now that all and sundry know about my exciting news (family and friends have been notified), I guess the last place to announce is here: I’m engaged! Guess love IS in the air for 2013!
Palladium white gold engagement ring with a deep pink sapphire in the flower setting, Lilia Nash Designs
It’s probably quite obvious from looking at the next photos I’m about to post why I personally recommended Lilia Nash Designs as the place to go for that unique ethically sourced engagement ring made from recycled metals in my previous post!
Basically my now fiance (feels strange calling him that already!) and I had spent a lot of time looking around for a designer that used recylced gold or silver for their engagement rings and gemstones that were ethically sourced (ie conflict free and fairtrade, his requirements) whose designs I actually liked and could ask for a pink sapphire (mine). Lilia Nash was my first and last choice and I couldn’t be happier with the ring she made me 🙂 It’s based on another custom order ring that she made for another customer which is displayed on her custom order page
Previous custom order for a fairtrade pink sapphire wedding ring set in 18ct white and rose gold, Lilia Nash Designs
I liked the idea of having a rose gold wedding band that fits perfectly with my engagement ring, but while the previous custom order had rose gold for the flower setting for the pink sapphire, I wanted it to be a deep pink colour and with the entire ring to be in Palladium white gold so it contrasts nicely with the rose gold wedding band.
Here’s a close up photo of the ring Lilia posted on Facebook on completion of the ring:
