Some months back, Nicholas was presented with a challenge from a client that combined all the elements that so inspire Nicholas and his team – romance and beautiful jewellery.
The challenge was to design two matching rings, his and hers, using a particular red gold and incorporating a stunning diamond that had a beautiful cognac colour.
For Nicholas, the actual design was the easy part as he had previously designed a wonderful pendant which the client adored. So Nicholas based the rings on the same mix of a metered gold surface with highly polished sections.
The hard part was to locate two 1ct diamonds for the rings that were just perfect for the stone. The cognac diamond is a brown gem that possesses a wonderful combination of reds and yellows that flash out from the stone. These stones are called fancy natural coloured diamonds – the stronger and brighter colour, the better.
It’s well to keep in mind when buying coloured diamonds, to only buy from a reputable jeweller. There are many treated stones on the market that are not always what they appear to be.
Nicholas eventually succeeded in his search, finding two amazing cognac diamonds which are now set into these matching rings.
The clients were just speechless when they tried them on for the first time. This involvement and shared journey together with the romance of creating beautiful jewellery is what Nicholas Wylde is all about – creating jewellery with individual stories.
