From the desk of Koorosh: Surprises and Engagements

Chief Designer and CEO of Wedding Bands & Co. Koorosh Daneshgar speaks of an experience he recently had during a family outing, and how important it is to make a strong impression with your proposal:

“This past weekend, my family and I visited the Chicago Conservatory in Garfield Park. If you’ve never been before, the Conservatory is a large greenhouse, filled  and surrounded with thousands of beautiful and exotic plants from all around the world. It’s truly a breathtaking experience, and I highly encourage you to visit sometime. It was very relaxing to walk around with nature, observing and becoming inspired by it.

What was interesting, however, was what I found inside one of the greenhouse rooms proper. After following the spiraling path through the building, one comes upon a small waterfall-turned-wishing well. It was filled with coins, of course, but what really got to me was the fact that the coins were arranged, rather than randomly tossed. I’ll let this video I took speak for itself.”

 

“It’s simple, but unforgettable. Engagements can be big and flashy or small and private, and anywhere in between – but the important thing is that they are memorable. You only get one chance, after all! To me, the proposal is just as important as the ring you’re trying to wow your partner with. You need to be creative like this person, you need to have the kind of touch that makes that moment truly your own. It needs to be something that you’ll look back at for years to come. After all, the ring can always be changed or upgraded later – but you only get one chance for your partner to say ‘Yes!'”

A Ring Story: Jules and the Fox Ring

Once in a while, something profound influences us in such a way that we use it to further define ourselves. Such is the case with Jules S, who wanted her wedding band to reflect her unique tastes, as well as her favorite animal: a fox!

Jules had been searching for some time for a wedding band as unique as her engagement ring, which was crowned with a rainbow moonstone rather than a diamond. Moonstones are believed to have a calming energy within them, though Jules was quite excited when she left Wedding Bands & Company!

This was due in part to her conversation with Chief Designer and CEO Koorosh Daneshgar, whom shared a fervor for creating Jules’ perfect ring. At the end of the day, Koorosh explained that Jules – who works as a graphic designer and artist – could include her own design drawings on her ring, so as to make it exactly how she wanted it to be. Below is the rough sketch from Jules, which was beautifully translated in the final piece. Called “Vulpes Rex,” it means, roughly, ‘Fox King.’

They both decided on 14 karat white gold, along with a pair of glistening, blue-green labradorite stones to adorn either side of the band. Labradorite, another specific choice of Jules’, is known for enhancing concentration and filtering out negative emotions.

“When I work with other designers,” says Koorosh,  “I feel more obligated to do something above and beyond. I really liked the idea of the fox that she drew, but my task was to put this to a ring which was just 5mm wide, and incorporate the stones at the same time. She was looking for a particular style, feel and uniqueness, and finally the moment I handed it to her, she was almost in tears. I knew it was mission accomplished!”

In the end, Jules couldn’t believe her eyes when the finished ring slid onto her finger. “I was so excited. I knew when I came in here that I wanted to do something special, and he did it. It’s perfect!”
