Sapphire Claddagh Engagement Ring and Celtic Wedding Set
When Dan was ready to propose to Carolina, he wanted to create an engagement ring that put a different spin on the traditional Irish claddagh. The claddagh is typically comprised of a crown sitting on top of a heart surrounded by two hands. For Carolina's ring, he wanted the hands to cup a pear shaped sapphire and the heart to form part of the ring's setting.
Working with Dan was a great time because he was literally hands on throughout the design process. Sometimes it can be challenging trying to verbally convey the perfect ring you're picturing in your mind, so to illustrate the way he wanted the hands designed he sent us an image demonstrating his own hands holding a cardboard center stone replica. This immediately helped Takayas to understand the hands' positioning!
The resulting platinum and sapphire engagement ring is modeled after his picture.
After he proposed, we had the pleasure of meeting Carolina when it came time to design their wedding bands. For their wedding bands, they each wanted different Celtic knots to form the basis of their rings. Dan's band is a little wider like a traditional men's band, and Carolina's thinner band features tighter woven knots.
We had such a great time working with both of them, and we wish them all the best fortune and love in their marriage!
