Natural Alexandrite and Diamond Wedding Set

We recently completed the final step for our client Dan- we blogged about creating his engagement ring last November.  After his fiance Ileana received her engagement ring, we made a matching wedding band, and soldered the rings together when they were married this spring.  Notice how beautifully the rings fit together and how nicely the patterns match- a good omen for a marriage!

The round natural alexandrite center is beautifully accented by pear shaped diamonds and the nice design. Alexandrite is a great stone for engagement rings- it’s a very hard and durable gem plus it’s unusual property of color change always gets lots of comment.  We showed Dan a group of several alexandrites from Brazil, and this one was definitely the plum- very bright and clear, great cut, strong color change.

Ileana wanted to make a special ring for Dan, not necessarily matching but custom.  She gave us a rough sketch featuring celtic weaves and maltese crosses- Jenny, our CAD genius refined the drawing into this design which we think works very well. He likes it a lot– it’s all the more special since she designed it for him.

The really nice things about Mardon custom wedding sets like this are

  • Reasonable price- you work directly with the manufacturer, no middle men.
  • Create your own design- we can work from your photo or sketch or create an original for you.
  • CAD/CAM means we can make your intricate designs, lettering, symbols easily and efficiently. We can even copy your handwriting!
  • Your design is safely archived, so it can be reproduced at a later date if you need it. Renew your vows in 25 years and we can make the ring again for you- maybe you’d like it in yellow gold or platinum or with gemstones!

    We don’t post prices on custom orders to protect our client’s privacy. Cost for rings like this will depend on the details, exactly how much the Alexandrite weighs, is it natural, what is it’s quality, how many diamonds, quality, what metal, etc. Give us a call to discuss.

    What is the carrot weight of each stone on the ring? How wide are the ring and band when put together? It looks like it is silver, could it theoretically be made in white gold?
