Barbara H. – Custom Citrine Ring in Yellow Gold
June 4, 2014
Barbara came in at the beginning of the year with a girlfriend, and when she found out that we did custom design, she said, “I’ve always liked the ring my friend’s wearing, could you make me something similar?” Her girlfriend was wearing a large, smoky topaz ring set in sterling silver. Barbara, however, wanted a citrine set in 14K yellow gold.
We got to work. After an initial series of sketches, we sent Barbara some renderings. She said what she did and didn’t like about each set, and we agreed upon the design. A few short weeks after the design was agreed on, the ring came back from the designer.
Barbara carefully examined it from every angle (she designs homes, and obsesses over lines) and finally said, “I know you probably can’t tell, because I’m so analytical, but I am in love with this ring! I’ve dreamt about this ring for 20 years and can’t tell you how excited I am that I finally have it!”)
