Mark & Kathy discovered our work at the Madison Art Fair on the Square. They had long discussed updating their wedding rings for their 25th Anniversary, but Kathy had not found anyone's work that spoke to her, and they had let the project move to the back burner. Upon walking into our booth, she knew that had changed.
When it comes to wedding and engagement gemstone options, one of our favorite options is Fair-trade Montana sapphires. Sapphire, along with diamond, is a very traditional options for wedding and engagement rings. Besides their beauty, their hardness (9 out of 10 on the Mohs scale of hardness) plays a big part in the history of this tradition. An everyday wear ring like an engagement ring should be durable enough to live with you, and an appropriate gemstone is part of this equation.
Therese discovered our work when a friend and yoga practitioner in her community had a family ring re-envisioned by kara | daniel. Therese found she wasn’t wearing her original engagement and wedding ring set, because its more delicate design didn’t work well with her yogi, rower, CrossFitter, and mom-to-a-toddler life.
