I always said that I didn't want an engagement ring, all I wanted was a nice wedding band, but then Denis proposed and to my own surprise all that changed - a ring changes things. I started to think about what I really wanted, and I found what I really wanted was a sapphire, but we had no idea whether that was crazy or reasonable. So we talked to Eva, she explained everything and made it easy for us. Luckily, she was going to a gem fare in Germany in a few weeks and having discussed what I most wanted in the stone, I put my faith in Eva's judgement - and I'm so happy I did.
We chose Eva for two main reasons, first we wanted an Irish designer and second, we were really impressed by the fine level of detail, craftsmanship and finishing that we saw in her previous work.
I have been wearing my ring for three weeks now and I continue to stare stupidly at my hand. A friend of mine called it 'mesmerising', and it is. What I am most happy about, however is, I know, I will still love my ring when I am eighty, and hopefully our next generation will love it too!
Thank you so much Eva!
