We had the good fortune to make beautiful tension-set engagement and wedding rings for Tony & Jason. Their active lifestyle required something that would wear well and have an aesthetic that spoke to them.
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.
Kelley & Nora’s fall Michigan wedding was a beautiful example of what a wedding that celebrates community looks like. Not only was it a gathering of their community of friends and family, but it was deeply connected to local businesses and organizations that make Kalamazoo such a special place to live.
