Custom Made Engagement Ring: Inspired by the waters of New Zealand

We love working with our clients to create personalised engagement rings that are both meaningful and different.

One of the great things about Benjamin Black Goldsmiths is that our jewellers are both the designers and the makers. When you order a custom made ring, you work directly with the person making it. This is something special that we are really proud of.

Alex contacted us about designing a engagement ring that would encompass an aspect of New Zealand. He lives in Brazil, but wanted to propose to his partner while on holiday in NZ - a country he loves and has a special connection with.

We worked with Alex to create a design that embodied the ocean; a 1 carat cornflower blue ceylonese sapphire, crafted in 18 carat red gold, with surrounding diamonds in a beautiful tension setting.

Alex was delighted with the ring and was able to propose while visiting NZ over the summer, just as he had planned.

"Ben and his team were everything you'd ask for when looking to design an engagement ring. We couldn't have asked for more. He is passionate, incredibly skilled, willing to go the extra mile and will always be remembered. Bernie was equally as caring and I'd recommend them to anyone looking to invest in a priceless piece of jewelry. Absolutely brilliant."

Alex and Mari, it was such an honour to create this special ring for you.
