Emma Soulsby Collaboration

In April this year we were fortunate enough to once again collaborate with the incredibly talented florist, Emma Soulsby at a decidedly fun and vibrant shoot for the luxury wedding blog, B.LOVED. The shoot, which was primarily to showcase Emma’s show-stopping ‘Moongate’ floral designs, was brought to life by our engagement rings and the work of several other wedding professionals.  A favourite of ours had to be this sumptuous four-tiered wedding cake engineered by West London’s Angus de Sucre and the critically acclaimed cake designer Reshmi Bennett. However, we were also bowled over by the meticulous detail in Kate Edmondson’s wedding dresses.

 

 

Photographed by bridal couture and wedding photographer, Amanda Karen, this composed medley of creativity and timeless style features several of our bespoke creations including engagement rings, pendants and earrings.

 

Rings

This 18 kt yellow gold  ring boasts a glistening 0.79 ct round cut yellow sapphire centre stone surrounded by intricate petals comprised of 12 round brilliant cut diamonds. We’ve called this piece the Yellow Floral Sapphire. This piece is particularly breath-taking. The metals used in the stone settings have been manipulated in a way that recreates the visual delicacy of a flower’s petals whilst clutching a shimmering yellow sapphire that emulates a radiant central disc, similar to that of a daisy.

Natural forms can be mimicked on such a small scale but this piece describes a more contemporary take on an organic design. This ring is clearly a standout piece – starlight yellows and contrasting mill-grain brilliant cut round diamonds in a remarkable halo of white and yellow gold petals. The image to the right shows our ring off alongside Emma’s arrangement and one of Kate Edmondson’s elegantly woven wedding dresses.

 

Pendants

Two of our stunning diamond drop pendant necklaces were gracefully modelled on this shoot. The first of which is our three-tier platinum Triptych pendant. Graduating pear shape diamonds flow over a detailed lace Florentine neckline ending in a 1.09ct diamond. The pendant belongs to a set with matching earrings. This is a special piece and one of the more valuable at the shoot.

We’ve named the second of our pendant and earring sets exhibited at Emma’s shoot the Peony Collection. As the pastel colours are an imitation of those of the flower’s, we think the name is fairly appropriate.

Each piece consists of a round brilliant cut pink diamond. Naturally pink diamonds are extremely rare and unlike almost all other coloured diamonds, very little is known about how they attain their rosy hue which makes this creation even more special.

Our final piece used for the shoot was this deep blue sapphire settled amongst a halo of round and pear shape brilliant cut diamonds. The piece, which is set in platinum contrasts well against the white of a wedding and makes a statement whilst maintaining a sense of class and elegance. We’ve named this the Midnight sapphire. You can also see this particular dress and more of Kate Edmondson’s deigns on her website here.
