Sarah, having found us on Google, contacted us by phone. She was looking to create a ring featuring a pink sapphire in a three stone configuration with diamonds, indicating that baguette side stones were her preferred shape.
Having exchanged a couple of emails with a number of potential stone options and configurations, she came into the office to view them in person, along with some of our sample rings to get an idea of the potential, final look. One consideration was how 'high' the stones would sit above the finger (the profile), settling on a lower profile appearance. Having set on the final design and stone selection, the ring was put into production. After 6 weeks in the workshop, the ring was completed and ready for collection. She was perfectly happy with the handmade ring.
A short time ago I happened to see a ring which I liked very much, however, as it did not fit me, it would need altering and I decided if that was the case I would have a similar one made.
I randomly looked at jewellers in Hatton Garden and contacted Haruni Fine Jewels. From the moment I spoke to Daniel at Haruni I was confident they would deliver exactly what I wanted.
I had certain criteria - platinum setting, pink sapphire, emerald cut or similar with diamond baguettes. We visited the premises and met Daniel who set out a variety of sapphires and diamonds of all shapes and sizes and positioned them in different ways until I finally settled on my design. I was never made to feel that my business was too small for them to deal with.
I had done some research into pink sapphires but was very interested to hear Daniel explain the technical details about the stones I was choosing. A few weeks later when we were again in London, Daniel very kindly said he would stay (at the shop), a little later as we had just arrived on Eurostar to hand over my gorgeous ring.
So many people have admired it and are surprised that it was possible to have a custom made piece of jewellery! It has never left my hand since. As a footnote, my mother had died a few months earlier and as I did not inherit her rings I see it as a little tribute to her as well.
