Aquamarine and ruby ringset commission

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

Sue makes rings to the size your 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 by cheque or back transfer).
  2. You (the customer) ensure it's 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.

Sue will happily resize, refinish or repolish the ring at any time after the 14 days have expired, but at a cost based on the time needed to fulfil the work which Sue can quote before you return the ring.

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.
