Thanks! Good advice. I have done a whole bunch of pics with the iPhone which has a pretty great macro, but I do plan on getting some proper studio pics done. The design for sure is hard to kinda capture in photos as it's really different from different angles. The front view shows the edge of the diamond and is pretty unique.yo wrote:First of all congratulations!
The design is fantastic. Really simple and elegant but very unique and designedly at the same time. Nice balance.
One piece of advice from another designer that designed his wife's ring, have a good photographer document it with a macro lens. I didn't do that and 17 years later it is a bit scratched up. I need to have it polished and photographed.
Why is it these jewelers are such cool characters?rkuchinsky wrote: At least that is what the old german Master Goldsmith guy says
I also think it's not fair that I have to wait until I do the wedding band to get a ring. I have nothing to show for our engagement unless she's there!yo wrote:Richard, this is a pretty awesome idea! Though I can see how dudes (and designers) would think it is cooler than fiancées!
I'll be designing the wedding bands as well. I didn't have something particular in mind when I did the engagement ring, as thought she might want to participate in the design and some women prefer to wear it on a different finger, etc. So far, I'm considering a very simple gold (to bring out the yellow diamond color) band with tubular section same as the engagement ring to go beside the engagement ring. Classic but still modern in simplicity. I'd like to try to find some sort of twist to add however on the inside, in texture, etc.Cyberdemon wrote:Congrats! I contemplated this but my wife had a very particular design in mind (that happened to be identical to her mothers 50 year old ring) so I wound up just matching it.
Any thoughts for the wedding band? Is there a secret second half to the design or will it be something that stands alone?
