I have written several threads about receiving my proposal eternity band and then Fiance and designing an e-ring together. We decided to do that b/c truth be told I am too much of a brat for any surprises and if I have to wear something for the rest of my life I want to LOVE it and I want Fiance to LOVE it too…. When Fiance proposed I received two things, my proposal band as well as a lose diamond from his great grandfather – the diamond is from 1916. Here I asked about your thoughts on circa 1920’s rings…and then here I showed you the two rings that have inspired me to make a custom made Art Deco ring…
Below is the first part of the custom making process…the wax molding…Its in the shape of an eye – it has two round diamonds that will sit next to the center diamond and then two borders of diamonds. The border closest to the center stone are square cut diamonds (which you can see) and the outer border are round cut diamonds. The center stone is set in an octagon shape frame.
We approved it and the final product will be ready March 10th YAY. I know this is silly but I am so so so excited and I just had to share this silly molding since I have shared the entire process with you all thus far……..
What do you all think?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Are you using Green Lake Jewelers? We almost did a custom band with them, but since our jeweler threw in the band, we just kept what they gave us 🙂

What the heck how did I miss your first two threads??? I have an Art Deco ring and I love it! I had to get a custom band made to fit it because it’s a bizarro shape.
Are you planning on wearing your proposal ring as the wedding band, or will you be getting a different one?

@Mrs DG – – no we’re not using Green Lake Jewelers. We’re having it (plus all of our rings, 5 total) made by a wholesaler here in town. If you ever need his info please don’t hesitate asking. He supplies all the diamonds for several stores; a couple are Fox’s and the Tiffanys in Pacific Place. The great thing is that his prices are almost half off the retail – YAY
@His Barista – – I know, not to mention it doesn’t help that the wax is a dark green LOL
@Nexus-6… I was hoping you would reply. I never knew what Art Deco rings were. Once I discovered them I knew immediately that I had to have one. We are Jewish and my wedding band(s) will be solid rose gold no stone bands. I’ll wear one infront and one behind my proposal band and thats what I’ll wear everyday. My e-ring will be worn as a right hand ring or for special occasions…..

So pretty! Can you tell us the source for your two “inspiration” rings from the other post?

@ jhphi – – ABSOLUTELY they came from Lang Estate and Antique Jewelry and then I also looked at Kent Shire almost daily as well as Alexandria Rossoff. I hope those help
Oh and I found those places by typing in ‘art deco engagement rings’ when I was on the Google Images page….

@jackie-o: thanks for the links! My mom came to visit me and lost this gorgeous Art Deco diamond and sapphire ring that she’s had for ages, and I know the insurance money is burning a hole in her pocket. I’ll send these to her for some options!

My Future Mother-In-Law works in jewelry and she designed the ring for our friends before they got engaged, it is a really cool process to observe, including the little wax models! I’ve never seen anything quite like yours, how neat. I bet you can’t wait for March.
