A story worth sharing
I hesitated about writing this particular post, but felt that despite it being tremendously sad, there was a certain warmth that makes it an important story worth sharing.
It goes some way towards demonstrating the deeper meaning that so many precious items of jewellery hold.
Almost a year ago, we were contacted by a couple looking to commission a wedding ring with such sentiment that we were deeply touched and moved by their story.
The wedding ring was to be engraved with a fingerprint belonging to the bride’s late father who had sadly passed away a short time before the wedding.
Without her father present, the wedding would never be the same. It is hard to imagine the feeling of a loss, and so close to the most important day of her life.
Engraving her Father’s fingerprint into her wedding ring meant that a part of him would be with her on her special day – staying with her for the rest of her life.
Most of our commissions demand individual consideration. In this situation, we recommended that our client retained the original print copies. If the ring was ever lost or stolen, it would be possible to replicate the print.
It is important to give such details consideration in advance – in this instance the prints were irreplaceable.
When we look at jewellery, the deeper meaning and sentiment is often overlooked for the intrinsic value of an item, but many forget the value of a cherished piece of jewellery is often far more precious than the gold itself.
