1 , It was Kenny that decided to design the engagement ring, I had shown him several Images and persistently dropped hints of what I liked but wanted larger Diamonds on either side of the centre Diamond, I had no idea he had actually paid attention to what I was saying so it was a total surprise. He spoke to my mother and she recommended him to go see Lesley at John McKay Jewellers in Paisley as she had made my mums wedding ring and engagement ring 12 years previously.
2. As Kenny had chosen all the tiny details of my ring, the stone size, colour and clarity all of which I loved, we got Lesley to make the wedding ring an identical match which was very straight forward we left the ring with John McKay Jeweller for 4 days they scanned it took all the details from it as well as clean it as new, they then sent me an email with a computerised image of the wedding ring on its own as well as sitting next to my wedding ring. I will attach the images.
3. I think having the ability to design your own ring opens the door up for women to have your dream ring I seen 100’s of rings that look very similar to my own but with far smaller diamonds on the shoulder’s or set in claws I am quite meticulous about the finer detail and know what I like and don’t like, I would have eventual settled for something close to what I wanted If Kenny had not had it made, it was an amazing surprise but even more so the fact every little detail was 100 % perfect.
4. The process was very simply and quick with the wedding ring as it was based on the engagement ring and was completed within 3 weeks from the initial appointment, the engagement ring took just over 4 weeks as there had to be an alteration to the first design as Lesley at John McKay thought the setting was to vulnerable being so high with the shoulder joining to low and as I work in an office with filling cabinets she advised Kenny to lower the centre stone and have the shank joining the setting half way up to avoid it getting damaged. The appointment was also very quick as the girls at John McKay had no problem understanding what we wanted, Kenny’s ring was also made to is specification as he is a fussy as I am, he had seen an image on line of a ring he liked which they asked him to email to them turned out they had a ring very similar, they then took a box of blank wedding rings in all different widths and weights and shapes and from that Kenny picked which shape he wanted it and how wide he wanted the ring and 3 weeks later it was completed.
5. We would highly recommend having wedding rings designed , made to your specification it makes the ring even more special knowing you have had it made specially for you as well as being able to get every single detail exactly as well as being enjoyable, we also discovered having our rings made was actually less expensive than buying them over the counter the ring Kenny had seen on line was £400.00 more expensive and he saved £3,000.00 buying the diamond and having the ring made. We got a discount on both wedding rings as we had got the engagement ring from them, we also get free cleaning and polishing and valuation’s for life all of which we wouldn’t have got on the high street.
