Carl & Nilam

Carl designed a beautiful white gold, sapphire and diamond engagement ring for his fiancée Nilam.
Carl came to us at Petra, not only with stones but gold to be used also. We melt down a lot of old gold but this was a little different as Carl has a 1oz bar of pure 24ct gold, gifted to him as a christening gift with the intent to be used one day to make wedding rings.
Usually we can change the shape of gold but cannot add new metals to make the gold different colours. The unique thing about Carl’s gold was that because of its purity we were able to have it alloyed into any kind of gold we needed. We had metals added to make the gold into 18ct palladium rich white gold.
The metal was used to set Carl’s blue sapphire and some diamonds from one of his mother’s rings to make this unique piece.
He proposed in September 2018 and Nilam said yes!
After making Nilam’s engagement ring, there was still plenty left over to make a pair of wedding rings to match!
Congratulations Carl and Nilam!
