Hayden & Larissa

The Proposal

On Christmas Day 2019, Hayden and Larissa went for a walk to one of their favourite places, Snapper Beach. Larissa was checking out the surf and when she turned around Hayden was down on one knee holding out a beautiful ring.

Having met five years earlier after being set up by their friends at a 21st, they laughed and talked all night long having no idea of the incredible journey they were about to take together. They have been chasing the Australian sun for the last two years exploring our beautiful country in their campervan, surfing and doing all the things they love





The Ring

This show-stopping 18ct Rose Gold ring features the most beautiful oval London Blue Topaz. The centre stone is highlighted by a sparkling grain set diamond halo and the ring is finished off with diamonds set along the shoulders. 

"The London Blue Topaz is a gorgeous gemstone with a very unique colouring. Not as light as a standard Topaz, or as dark as a Sapphire, the colouring of the London Blue can be compared to that of the ocean. For this particular ring, the pink tones in the rose gold complement the blue stone perfectly. Hayden wanted a ring with a fine band and we designed one that was feminine and delicate to look at but still substantial enough underneath that it would be sturdy and able to be worn every day."

The Design Process

With the guidance of Catherine's advanced knowledge in the industry, combined with Hayden's vision, the most beautiful engagement ring was designed and brought to life. 

"Hayden knew that Larissa loved the beach so he wanted a stone that would remind her of the ocean. We searched for a London Blue Topaz that was just the right colour and shape and then moved onto designing the perfect setting. We used Rose Gold and chose a solid band with smaller diamonds in the halo and along the shoulders, a setting that is feminine but also practical so Larissa could enjoy wearing it every day with her busy lifestyle."
