04 Mar “The Comet” Ring | Engagement Ring Symbolism
Engagement Ring Symbolism
To many, engagement ring symbolism plays a significant and meaningful part of life. Symbols of love, devotion and the fidelity that couples share, engagement rings are some of the most powerfully symbolic objects that one can own. Oftentimes, this symbolism represents the unique nature of a couples’ relationship, the things they value, and many other unique sentimental values that are held between two people. The very shape and design of the ring, however, often has additional symbolism that many couples incorporate when they design their rings with us or select the perfect ring to represent their relationship.
The “Comet Ring”
By specializing in custom design, we have the pleasure of helping our clients redesign, enhance or design from scratch some of the most symbolic rings. The below ring, which we will refer to as “The Comet Ring” is a ring originally custom designed (before coming to us) by a young client of ours, Andrew, who was looking to create a wedding band for his fiancé that would complement the symbolism of the engagement ring.
The story goes like this: Andrew, our guy, lived in France and Crystal, our girl, lived in the USA. They were both attending college, he for chemical engineering and she for aeronautical engineering. Hence, the trillions represent them as a couple, while the divide in the middle represents the ocean. Now here’s the creative part: those very trillions also represent comets!
So, of course, Andrew wanted to design something that would fit his gorgeous custom designed engagement ring. It began with a drawing as he and Studio owner, Corinne Turnbull, fleshed out the very style of this one of a kind wedding band. Once the style was decided, we sent it to our CAD designer to go through the custom design process that all of our custom rings go through.
After the completion of the CAD, any minute or major design edits that our clients wanted to make were incorporated into the design to create exactly what was originally envisioned. The ring was then cast in the matching metal of choice and paired with its engagement ring counterpart to create the ring you see below.
With the help of GIA Jeweler and Studio Owner Corinne Turnbull, our client was able to design the perfect wedding band that fit the form style and meaning of the engagement ring.
