“After receiving the vision of an iridescent hummingbird in a meditation, Nicholas Wylde came into my mind as the obvious choice to make my vision tangible. For years I had been considering remodelling my grandmother’s engagement ring into something that would remain meaningful to me but would get more use than sitting in a box gathering dust!
Nicholas had previously designed my wedding ring and a gorgeous bangle that I wear daily so I felt confident he would create a thing of beauty that suited me and my lifestyle. After numerous emails back and forth with images and sketches, I met Nicholas at his Bath studio to review the final design – which was incredible. Elements of my grandmother’s engagement ring were to become a beautiful hummingbird pendant with diamonds, rose gold and an alluring black Tahitian pearl especially sourced by Nicholas. The black pearl was an inspired suggestion by Nicholas as it mimics the iridescence of a hummingbirds feathers. I couldn’t wait to see the final result!
On the day of collection I was feeling nervous and excited, but when Nicholas presented me with the box and I opened it the pendant was more beautiful and mesmerising than I could have imagined. It certainly exceeded my expectations and those of my family. The pendant is such an unusual piece I receive compliments wherever I wear it. It feels especially significant to me wearing a piece that integrates the symbolism of the hummingbird and a piece of my grandmothers history so close to my heart.”
