I've been meaning to post my engagement ring for ages but decided to wait until I had my wedding band...both by CvB. (More hand shots later, after the wedding. I was only able to snap a few photos before my beloved insisted I put the wedding band away.)

Diamond is an OEC, Q/R color., ~3.5 ct. Casablanca setting is 18 kt YG with a stylized honeybee in the gallery. Lovely buttery/lemony yellow color, and very fiery.

I worked with Caysie to customize the Casablanca. Long story, but the bee is sort of a personal emblem for me. (And on my first date with my soon-to-be-wife, we went to a little art gallery and I bought 3 tiny little paintings of honeybees dressed up in fancy Edwardian finery.)

This diamond has ridiculous, David-Bowie level kozibe which unfortunately makes it a challenge to photograph. Very prismatic and shoots colorful fiery lasers. Sometimes I'll be in a meeting at work and realize my ring is casting a several-foot wide disco ball on the ceiling!

Wedding band is also 18 kt YG. Inspired by the lovely Exeter band, but done in ruby and single-cut diamonds. I wish thing band photographed half as beautifully as it looks in person.

And the combination of the 2 rings together is simply stunning.

Congratulations, what a jaw dropping and completely gorgeous set!
The bee gallery is inspired- just beautiful and I love the meaning behind it:clap: and I would love to know how you get any work done at all? I would just fall into a trance staring at that ring pop!
When’s the wedding? I hope it’s soon so that you can pop that stunning band on too:dance:

Absolutely gorgeous. Casablanca is one of my favorite settings, and the color and cut of your stone is drool worthy.

Holy gorgeousness! Your new ring is stunning and I adore that honeybee detail in the gallery. Everything is so buttery and warm. Then you throw that band on there and....bam!

Wow! Everything about this set is incredible!! The bee detail is so sweet, especially since it allows you to completely personalize the ring. And that band with rubies is to die for!! Can I ask where you found that lovely stone? I'm a sucker for lower colors. The buttery warmth is just perfect. Congrats!!!:kiss2:

Thank you! Wedding is in 3 weeks, so we're down to all of the last minute pre-wedding madness like seating charts. Truthfully, not sure what I'm more excited about - being married, wearing that ruby band, or being done with wedding planning!

Who am I kidding? Being married. Closely followed by that ruby band. But just a few more weeks, and I can provide more hand shots.

I will confess a few of my coworkers have caught me playing with my ring during boring meetings. Is it bad that I know which seats in the conference rooms we use most often have optimal lighting conditions for maximum sparkle?

Rings are gorgeous!
Love the story and now I kinda want to see the dressed up bee paintings!

I happen to have a pic of the fancy lady bees on my phone!

Thanks! Caysie really did an amazing job with both. What I was so impressed with was her ability to capture this vague idea in my head and bring it to life, first through a rough sketch and then later via CADs and ultimately the rings. I swear she has mind reading powers or something.

I originally wanted the Exeter done with rubies instead of diamonds, but she thought it might look a little too checkerboard and came up with this Exeter-inspired design and talked me into it. I'm so glad she did; I am so in love with this ring.

I'll try to get a better pictures, but there's even a little honeycomb detailing in the gallery!

More info on the Q/R stone later, right now I don't trust my memory when it comes to details so I want to double check paperwork. (I just spent the morning doing seating chart and room layout stuff for the wedding and my brain is just done. All I want is to dive into a very large glass of wine right now!)

What a beautiful set. I absolutely love the ruby band. I too saw your band on IG. I think your band is one of my all time favorite rings on PS.

Hot diggity! What a great collaboration that lead to a one of a kind set. I adore the bee gallery, your lush, disco-ball diamond, and, the band is positively the stuff of my wildest dreams. Well done!

Congrats!
