What happens when a geologist and an electrical engineer get engaged? They find a jaw dropping raw diamond specimen, uncut, unpolished, straight out of the earth to represent their love. Jennifer designed several options, employing watercolor and wax models, to help Bart & Carolyn decide. They went with a gorgeous 18k yellow gold hand hammered mounting that accentuates the natural shape of the 2.25ct octahedral diamond, which has a different profile from every angle.
"I LOVE my ring; it is everything I could have ever wanted and more. It has become an extension of my body and my ultimate tool. I can’t tell you how many people have told me it is the most intimidating and spectacularly beautiful ring they have ever seen. My most favorite compliment came from a 93 year old woman who said in all her years she had never seen anything so captivatingly beautiful and that Bart and I could rest assured knowing my ring had no equal. While the numerous compliments are communicated to me, I know that they are actually meant for you. I lavishly praise your work and collection at every opportunity. I’m a Dawes Design lifer :)
There is no one else I would want to create the physical manifestation of Bart's and my love than you."
