Imagine being given a diamond for every decade you have lived on this planet. Well with our new collection we have made that possible!
My mum asked me, 10 years ago when my auntie turned 50, if I could make her a ring with 5 rubies in it for her. Of course I said yes, even though I was barely out of college and very nervous! I made her a Sterling Silver ring and set the rubies in 9ct yellow gold bezels. When it was finished I was so proud of myself and my auntie, 10 years on, still wears that ring every day.
About 3 years later, my skills were 100x better and I was working as a goldsmith in Australia. My nana turned 70 and my mum once again asked if I could make her a ring with 7 of her birthstone (diamond!) in 9ct yellow gold. Unfortunately my nana is no longer with us but she treasured that ring and I know it will always be treasured in our family.
A few years on and my mum turned 50, so without even thinking I knew what to make her. I made her the same ring but in 18ct Rose Gold and set it with 5 champagne diamonds - this suits my mum to a T!
And then we reached 2021 and I turned 30, my mum asked me what I wanted and I wasn’t entirely sure, I didn’t need a new handbag and it wasn’t like we could go away! So after some thinking, I decided I would like to carry on tradition and make myself the same ring. I opted for 18ct Rose Gold with 3 pink diamonds (my dream!)
As I was reflecting on the fact that these ‘milestone’ rings are dotted throughout the generations of women in my family it hit me that this would make a beautiful jewellery collection! How many people have no idea what to buy for a big birthday and also have no idea what they want?
I am a lover of birthdays and especially big ones. Every time you hit a new decade I think it gives time for reflection and celebration, where have you been and where are you going? Wearing one of these rings not only reminds you of the reasons to celebrate but also of the wonderful humans who gifted it to you.
I don’t design collections for the sake of designing them. Every piece of jewellery we make at Roseanna Croft Jewellery tells a story and has a deeper meaning and even though these diamond rings are simple, they’re also timeless. Most certainly a piece to be passed through generations.
If you’d like to learn more about the Milestone Rings I have made then please don’t hesitate to contact me and my team and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
Please note these rings take 3-6 weeks to create as each piece is made for the individual, if you need a ring in a rush you might be better enquiring about a gift voucher for the piece or a bespoke design experience. Bespoke options are available.
