One of the joys at RUUSK is moving through the process with you to create your special heirloom pieces and seeing how our clients bring meaning to the pieces they receive.
We know that you were surprised with two RUUSK pieces on your special day, can you tell us a bit about them?
I was very spoilt, my Mum gifted me a gold bracelet with a heart pendant, with a beautiful inscription on the inside. My sister, sister in law and cousin gifted me my beautiful Crescent Moon Necklace.
What did it mean to you to have the Crescent Moon to wear close to your heart during such a meaningful life moment?
The girls knew I adored RUUSK pieces, to have a custom piece made especially for my wedding day was one thing, but my beautiful cousin also used a portion of her inheritance money from our beloved nana who had recently passed. I felt like I was wearing a piece of her close to my heart. There are so many reasons why I cherish this piece so much.
What did you love most about your wedding?
I was always most excited for that moment our song began playing, and Brad saw me walking down the aisle for the first time. Reality didn’t disappoint, I will never forget the way he looked at me. A close second was the preparation with my girls and family, there was dancing, laughing and crying. So much love!
We've had the pleasure of creating pieces for you, your sister and your Mum. What's a favourite memory you have of the three of you together?
Yes! All three of us wear our Moon and Stars Ring every single day. We are so close, and now my sister and I have had our babies close together. We have spent many, many days at mums with all of our babies playing and they are really precious times. I think this would have to be my favourite chapter for the three of us! My mum is a beautiful ‘Mimi’ to her grand babies.
What excites you most about this next chapter of life?
Brad and I had our two beautiful boys before we were married, so I suspected life after the wedding wouldn’t change much, but there is something very special about becoming a wife. Somehow we feel closer and more complete, although our family isn’t quite whole yet and so I look forward to building our dream home together and filling it with more babies!
