A Ring Story: Guest-Starring Val Warner!

When it comes to crafting an engagement ring, each and every piece that we produce is a unique representation of love and devotion. It is because of this stand-apart beauty that, Koorosh’s craft reaches the ears of celebrity clientele. From football players to TV personalities, Ring Master Koorosh Daneshgar has helped design rings for people from all walks of life. Today, we’ll be focusing on the gorgeous engagement ring he designed for Chicago’s own Valerie Warner, TV Host and trusted news reporter.

Val and husband, Jeff.

Wedding Bands & Company fell in love with Valerie Warner long before she joined Windy City Live, and we’ve been inseparable since!  More important than our ‘relationship,’ however, is the love that Val and her husband Jeff share. When he knew that the time was right, Jeff asked us to work together with him to design a ring with so many beautiful diamonds that they’d sparkle like her beautiful eyes. Koorosh and Jeff came up with this unique and dazzling design, inspired by the unique and dazzling Val Warner.

Chief Designer and Ring Master Koorosh Daneshgar worked long and hard to make Jeff’s dream for Valerie a reality. Using a 2 carat center stone, Koorosh focused on her one big request: to make a ring that would sparkle from any angle it was viewed at!  While difficult, it certainly wasn’t impossible, and what followed was truly breathtaking. “Valerie and Jeff were a lot of fun to work with,” he said. “They both had a lot of positive energy and were very expressive of their desires. This ring will always hold a special place in my heart.”

What resulted was a stunning, truly unique piece of jewelry that Valerie can claim all to herself. Inspired and based off of a ‘Disco-Ball Design,’ Koorosh surrounded the center stone – which rests at the top of the ring – with many more, smaller diamonds, in a ball around it, as well as on the band itself.

Val and Jeff may share a love that’s unparalleled, but the ring he helped design for her comes in close behind. Even to this day, she cannot stop showing it off and even tweeting about it!
