POPSUGAR Australia: Was the ring custom designed?
Kate Reid: Yes, the ring was designed by Matty and myself during a design appointment. He saw examples of finished rings, hand-drawn sketches, and photographs alongside an amazing selection of diamonds and coloured gemstones. We discussed aspects of the designs he liked and disliked, and I sketched up a few different ideas. This is quite typical of any design appointment we do at Larsen Jewellery, we specialise in helping our clients to custom design something original with their partner in mind.
PS: How much input did Matty have?
Kate: Matty selected the stunning 1.30ct oval-cut centre diamond, he then chose the band from one of our ring designs and the setting from another. He wanted the band to be finer and the setting had to be redesigned to hold an oval diamond, I did a few sketches to confirm his requests but the ring we created for Matty was largely designed by him.
PS: How long did the ring take to make?
Kate: We have been known to make small miracles happen if someone comes to us with a tight timeframe, let's just say Matty was one of those people!
