In today's installation of the Design Series, follow along in this story of a gorgeous eternity band that we created to help a special couple celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary. The customer learned about Ada Diamonds after reading a recent article in Fortune Magazine. When the couple contacted Ada, they were very excited about lab diamonds, saying "When we were shopping for wedding bands five years ago, we knew about 'blood diamonds' but were only vaguely aware of lab grown diamonds and we didn't even think to ask our jeweler. One thing that held us back from buying an anniversary band before was becoming more aware about the devastation of diamond mining. We had no idea there was such a great alternative!"
The customer's engagement ring was a style very similar to our Three Stone Channel Setting, and her wedding band was a Channel Set Eternity Band that she wanted to have us recreate to exactly match the original. Ada's Diamond Concierge provided a UPS label for the customer to submit their own rings in order to accommodate a perfect match. When the rings were received, Ada's designers replicated the wedding band using CAD (computer aided design) software.
As part of this service, Ada Diamonds also cleaned, restored, and re-plated the customer's rings.
The Diamond Concierge was able to match the existing diamonds with H color 2.0mm lab grown stones for the eternity band. In just a few short weeks, Ada delivered the completed set to the customer who was absolutely thrilled with the set. Ada's team had so closely matched the original wedding band, that the customer was unable to tell which band was the original and which was the anniversary band.
We know the couple will treasure this beautiful set, and will return for special pieces in the future now that they have been so delighted by their experience with laboratory diamonds. Adding a second band is also an economical way to upgrade the entire set without replacing the original stone.
