Fara came into Malka Diamonds of Portland Oregon with her families jewelry about one year ago. She was hoping to create her own custom jewelry that she would wear everyday. We had pulled out stones and metal that could be used towards the new piece. The mission, however, was a big one and she needed time to think of exactly what that piece would look like. We agreed to revisit the custom jewelry project when she was ready. A year later, Fara came back in to Malka Diamonds & Jewelry. She was still unsure what to do but after a productive brainstorming session with David and Ronnie, she was feeling more confident about the custom jewelry project. The tri-colored ring seen in the image would become the bands. This ring was from her paternal grandmother, Helene. It was worn during her wedding ceremony because they needed a ring that was a solid circle. The largest stone in the grouping was a diamond that was salvaged during World War II. It was one of the few things that Fara's mother's family saved from their jewelry store before the Nazis tore the store apart. The next largest diamond was taken from the engagement ring seen in the photo. Chris had proposed with this ring 13 years ago and it meant a great deal to Fara that it was represented in this custom ring. The three small stones were pulled from a bracelet that Fara's father, Steve had gifted her mom, Shelly. The result as Fara posted on her Facebook page ..."is a super blingy (ha!) tribute to my marriage (going on 13 years!), my family (to whom I will pass this on), and the beautiful women in my life, whose stories I get to continue to tell."
We are truly honored with the opportunity to work on such an amazing project. We know that this new piece will become an heirloom in Fara's family for decades to come.
