We absolutely love creating beautiful modern heirlooms for you to treasure and, with Mother's day just around the corner, there's no better time to reflect on some of the special pieces that we've created that celebrate motherhood.
This week we asked the lovely Bonnie to share with us some of the story behind her very special Signet ring...
What prompted you to have your Signet ring created?
"The birth of my third child. My journey into motherhood had left me with so many emotions and words that I don't think I'll ever be able to explain or express. It needed more than just a story, it needed something tangible and symbolic."
How does your ring speak to motherhood and family?
"Since becoming a mother traditions and the ceremonial process has become very important to me. It made me realise even more so that I carry all of the traditions from my family, and it's my responsibility to pass them on. My grandmother had a ring that was custom made with the birthstones of each of her children set in it and I loved that idea. Tania's work spoke to that idea my grandmother had, and I decided to carry it on using her custom work to make my signet ring. My ring is set with three diamonds, each in a starburst design. Each diamond representing my three girls."
How did you find the experience of creating your personalised family heirloom?
"It was so easy. I ordered the free ring sizer to start it off and Tania got the ball rolling for me by emailing to see how the sizer was going. I literally didn't have to leave the house to get it done (and couldn't because I had had a cesarean) but the option was there to visit her studio if I wanted. From the first email exchange Tania was warm and inviting and so helpful when customising the signet ring she made for me. The end product is well made and so beautiful. It has a wonderful weight to it and fits my desired finger perfectly. The ring represents so much to me, and having someone clearly make it with love makes it all the more special."
Thank you for sharing your story with us Bonnie, it was such a pleasure and an honour to create your very special Signet ring for you. We hope you treasure it for all your years to come. x
