Engagement Stories—Shauna + Dustin
I had the pleasure of meeting Shauna and Dustin last year at our holiday event. They came in to say hello and to begin trying on our engagement rings. They had found our work through Shauna’s sister who is a fellow creative. Shauna played dress up with her favorite rings and we chatted about our custom process.
Fast forward to the spring of this year, Dustin reached out to begin the design and creation of Shauna’s ring. With a beautiful round diamond center, just a bit over a carat, we started to work on building the design around the focal stone. Dustin decided that he wanted to go for a classic, symmetrical look for her ring and we worked through varying stone sizes until we came up with the perfect balance of accenting round diamonds. We chose to have the center diamond offset with a basket prong setting with a gentle curve while the accent diamonds had closed settings for contrast. The center diamond sits a bit higher than the accents to highlight the stone as they graduate in size.
On September 8th, Dustin proposed to Shauna at the Indianapolis Museum of Art and she of course said “yes!”
I am so happy for you Shauna and Dustin, thank you for letting me be a part of your engagement story! I am looking forward to creating your wedding rings and watching your journey of love grow through time.
