The Ring

I designed Jo’s engagement ring myself and it was made by a goldsmith associated with Rolf Dillmann in Berne. The ring contains two rubies and a diamond on a white gold band in a classic design. The band is slim where it joins the setting and increases in breadth towards the rear of the ring, to signify that our love will only increase and strengthen as it continues into the future. The two raspberry-red rubies represent sweetness and passion in both of us and the diamond, which is slightly larger than the rubies, represents the perfection of our relationship and the fact that our joining together will create something which is bigger than the combination of our individual selves.
