Music and love have a strong connection that transcends time and culture. I believe this connection is based on the emotional and expressive qualities of both music and love. So many songs are written about love. So many of our most romantic moments took place with some sort of music in the background forever connecting that song to that moment. Listening to only a few bars can stir the same memories and emotions, it’s amazing!
That is what made this piece so special. Music had a significant role to play in this young couple’s origin story. More specifically, it was a musical instrument, a guitar. So, when this client approached me to help him design, and craft, a custom diamond engagement ring that incorporated guitar picks I immediately understood the significance of his request. However, I also recognized the challenge and need to avoid doing anything too “obvious”. Like the soundtrack to their love the guitar picks had to be present but subtle and in the background. An ever-present yet hidden reminder of how it all began.
