Aquamarine and ruby ringset commission

April 09, 2019

Contemporary aquamarine and ruby ringset commission.

A few years ago I met a lovely couple at Desire fair, London. I was asked by him to make a one-off ringset as a birthday gift for her. We took inspiration from my contemporary silver, 18ct gold and aquamarine ring.

I made a stacking ringset using a lovely dark blue aquamarine and she was delighted with it (see image below)!

Fast forward several years and my client asked me if I could make a ruby ring for their ruby wedding anniversary as a surprise for her (image below). I sourced a beautiful oval ruby to add a little contrast to the pear shape aquamarine.

It worked beautifully nestled with the existing stacking ringset and can be worn in any combination (shown here without aquamarine ring).

My clients both loved the ring and I was delighted to be a small part of their celebrations. I also like the way the aquamarine and ruby ring can stack together on their own too (image below).

The aquamarine represents the birthstone for March and the ruby represents 40 years of marriage. 


Ring sizing

Standard designs

Sue makes rings to the size you select when ordering. If the ring does not fit, then she will re-size the ring free of charge (once only) providing:

  1. You (the customer) pay £9 to cover Royal Mail Special Delivery costs for returning the ring to you (can be paid online or via bank transfer).
  2. You (the customer) ensure it is returned within 14 days of delivery.

Please contact Sue before returning a ring for a re-size; it is so useful to have a discussion to help gauge how much adjustment is needed.

Please note: rings must be returned via Royal Mail Special Delivery and opting for the appropriate insurance option to cover the cost of the item. Sue Lane is not responsible for the delivery costs of returning a ring for re-sizing or for lost or damaged rings whilst in transit. For more details, please read our Returns Policy.

After 14 days: Sue will happily resize but at a cost based on the time needed to fulfil the work plus postage. Sue can quote for any work before you return the ring.

Commissioned designs

Any item made just for you, that is not one of Sue's standard designs: You (the customer) need to ensure the size is correct before Sue commences any work. If your order doesn't fit, Sue may be able to resize for you depending on the design and stones used. There may well be a charge involved due to the complexity of the design and for working with stones that where not supplied by Sue which may be difficult to work with. Contact Sue to discuss if it is possible and she can let you know the cost involved, including postage.

Not sure of your ring size?

If you are not sure of your ring size, please contact Sue. She can arrange your order and then post out a free ring sizer to you. You then simply call or email with the measurement.
