Engagement Rings

Choosing an engagement ring is an important milestone and Philippe Medawar considers it a privilege to provide expert guidance. What is her profession?

Diamonds are the hardest naturally occurring material on earth. We can thank God for creating the sparkling mineral, diamond, and for the many ways it has benefitted humanity in diverse applications such as industry, music, technology and health sciences, to name a few. One of our favorite tangible expressions of the sparkling transmission of light is, of course, diamond jewelry! Whether one’s goal is glamour, romance or to symbolize an important milestone such as the marriage covenant, diamonds have become an integral part of our lives. Diamonds often say perfectly what we cannot adequately convey: “You have value... I care about you... Congratulations” and of course, “I love you.” Never before has the emission of dispersion and fire – the separating of white light into its spectral hues – spoken so loudly to us through its beautiful sparkle.

"Thank you so much for making my engagement ring so special. We knew the ring would be beautiful, yet we were startled by the radiance of the diamonds once they were put in a proper setting. It is comforting knowing his grandmother’s diamonds will always be secure. I feel blessed to know such a talented and generous family."
"Thank you so much for the ring – it is even more beautiful than before! At our ceremony, we handed off our rings to the guests in attendance. We asked them to hold them for a minute, and bless, impart good wishes or blessings over them before passing them along to the next person. We carry those positive energies with us within the rings as reminders of our true riches – those we love and who are part of our story. You are now part of that story. We will carry your generosity and cherish your role in gifting us with your friendship."
—Jenny and Duane
"I cannot begin to express my gratitude for you sizing my engagement ring for me. It was the kindest gesture I have encountered in a while. I look forward to referring all of my friends and family to your business. I also am eager to purchase future jewelry from you. The world needs more people like you, such a kind soul!!"

"On Wednesday April 16, the love of my life asked me to be his wife. He gifted me with the most beautiful and unique gift I had ever received. Thank you for putting your time and sweat into making this symbol so special for us!"
"I guess we should start by telling you that we are officially engaged as of Monday night! What an amazing feeling! Every part of this situation feels so perfect to the both of us, telling us that God’s hand is in every detail. The role you played in all of this was an absolute direct blessing of His. You only met one half of us once but went completely out of your way to help us obtain the perfect engagement ring. It’s the most beautiful, amazing thing either of us has ever seen. The unbelievable additions you made brought extra “wow” to something that couldn’t seem to be any better. We both love the diamond on the underside…what a thoughtful and unique touch! From the bottom of our collective heart, thank you! You helped make our engagement so special. You will forever be a part of our relationship.
P.S. Wow! The CD with the pictures was incredible! Loved to see the whole process...what an amazing gift…and thank you for the appraisal."
