To Be a Diamond

We recently hosted the lovely Luciana in our Bath store, a very friendly and beautiful young woman who had recently  experienced the loss of her beloved mother, and come to us in order to commemorate her in a piece of jewellery.

Her mother had always said that when she was gone, she would like to become a diamond; That is, she would like her ashes to be made into a diamond. Here at Wylde’s we work closely in partnership with Heart in Diamond, a company that offers such a service. We were very happy to be able to do this for Luciana, and create a ring that would hold other sentimental diamonds, along with a central stone that would be her mum, for her to carry with her always.

Following her experience with us, and the collection of the ring, Luciana kindly wrote in to us about her journey with Wylde’s bespoke service.

My decision to get a diamond made using my mothers ashes was fuelled by a conversation we’d had…. “My place is with you” she had said, when she couldn’t decide on a special place to have them scattered. After doing some research she had decided… she would love to become a diamond I’d treasure forever….. so long as it was impressive and dazzling! 

    A little while after my mother passed away, and after some disappointing and impersonal communications with a Switzerland based company, I came across Heart In Diamond. The fact they were a UK company appealed to me, and their personal and ‘above and beyond’ approach continued from start to finish. 

    Anita came in person to collect my mother’s ashes and take my order, which was all done over a cup of coffee at Nicholas Wylde. She even hand delivered my mothers diamond to me when it was ready. 

    I decided to approach Nicholas Wylde to create my bespoke ring, due to their sound and long standing reputation in Bath. 

    Their Jewellery Designer, India Mee, is one very talented young lady. She was genuinely interested in my story and was passionate about ensuring my ring was just perfect. Her designing ability is admirable and she spent time going through many different options and ideas with me. Her warm and personable approach was just what I needed during this rather emotional journey. 

    When I collected my ring I was overjoyed. The team at Nicholas Wylde created a beautiful and sentimental keepsake I will never want to take off. I cannot stop looking at it, nor can I thank you all enough. 

    I know my mother would think the design was stunning, and would be very happy to become such a beautiful, sparkling diamond!

We were delighted to hear that Luciana knows that her mother would have loved the ring too, and are so glad that we were able to bring her some small comfort with this bespoke piece of jewellery.

We thank her and wish her the very best of luck for the future, now with her mum with her at all times.
