Ben & Bridget
Date Posted:8 May 2020
Having met on their first day of university, a beautiful three-year friendship blossomed into a modern-day love story. Four years, three cities and one puppy later, Ben finally popped the question after lots of hints from Bridget. He actually proposed twice, unofficially in the hospital after waking up from major surgery and officially a few weeks later, to which Bridget said a very excited "YES".
"Absolutely over the moon, the ring is just gorgeous!"

A beautiful cushion cut diamond highlighted by a halo of sparkling round brilliant cut diamonds. A stunningly timeless design that will sparkle for years to come. This ring is more than meets the eye as it includes an extra-special hidden feature. Bridget desired a ring that was not only beautiful to look at but one that was also filled with special meaning. If you look closely you will see two small Emeralds hidden in the band under the centre stone. These represent the couple's birthstones as they are both born in May. A ring truly designed to represent Bridget and Ben's unique love story!
This ring features lab-created diamonds. With both Ben and Bridget being science teachers, the idea of including a stone that was not only beautiful but also grown using the latest cutting-edge technology was extremely exciting!
The Design Process
Ben came to us at the beginning of January in 2020 wanting to design the perfect engagement ring for Bridget. The couple were living in a rural Queensland town at the time and being a teacher Ben didn't have the time to make regular visits to the Gold Coast, meaning we had to go about this design process a bit differently. After an initial face-to-face consultation at our boutique store on the Gold Coast, we were able to finish designing this gorgeous ring with Ben remotely via email and messenger. Less than two months later and with the help of our trusted courier service, this beautiful engagement ring was delivered right to Ben's door (well actually his workplace as we didn't want Bridget finding out).
