Bespoke: Maintaining that sentimental touch

By: Jamie McFadden

At DMR, we have the privilege to be involved in so many beautiful stories, each with their own special place in the lives of our friends. Founded in a Liverpool workshop almost 50 years ago, David Robinson continues to keep the workshop at the heart of all that he does.

Whilst we continue to design and manufacture exclusive collections of jewellery for our clients, remodelling those pieces that play a special part in your life is just as important to us. DMR client Hannah Owens sought our advice on such a bespoke request, and we interviewed her to give an insight into the bespoke process.

Hi Hannah! This bespoke piece is stunning, what’s the story behind it?

“When my Grandmother died, I inherited a ring that was special to her; one she wore everyday. Whenever I picture her, she is wearing her three-stone diamond and sapphire ring, the one that my Grandfather gave her on their 25th Wedding Anniversary.”

What spurred you on to change such an important piece then?

“The ring was of its time… yellow gold with a high mount.. it wasn’t my taste at all, but it symbolised my Grandparents’ happy marriage! I couldn’t bear to think of it left in its box in a drawer so I wore it.”

What made you feel that now was the time to seek the assistance of DMR’s design team?

“After our third child was born, my husband and I discussed the possibility of purchasing an eternity ring to celebrate the completion of our family.

We wanted something different and decided on a custom made piece comprising three platinum stands, one for each of our children. As the ring was to be custom made, we decided to incorporate the gems from my grandmothers ring: two diamonds for each of our boys, and the sapphire for our daughter. It commemorates our family’s love and ties across four generations. I will wear it every day just like she did.”
