Heirloom Diamond Engagement Rings

We love hearing stories about grandparents passing down their heirloom diamonds for grandchildren to use. Their heirloom diamonds will provide an extra level of significance for your ring. 

Heirloom Diamonds Story: Dorian & Katie

Dorian had been given his great grandmother’s diamond engagement ring to use for his own engagement ring. He used the center heirloom diamond to create a custom design exclusively for the love of his life, Katie.

Heirloom - Dorian Proposal

After seeing her ring for the first time, Katie sent Vanessa Nicole an email: 

“Hi Vanessa, Dorian told me that you created my engagement ring and I just wanted to send you a note to tell you how truly thankful I am for your incredible work. Not only did I break down in tears (happy tears!) when he proposed, but the ring literally took my breath away. It is everything I ever could have dreamed of and so much more. It is so special and I appreciate the care you took to set his great grandmother’s stone into my dream setting. I am so thankful to both of you for creating my dream ring. Thank you for making our engagement that much more special.


Katie (the future Mrs. Dorian Keller)”

Heirloom Diamonds Story: Michael & Alma

When Michael and Alma visited the studio to discuss her dream vow renewal ring, the meeting was more emotional than I expected. Alma shared the personal story behind the meaning of her new custom ring. The diamonds would be used from three rings that were 30 to 90 years old. The largest two diamonds would represent her and Michael, the middle two would represent her sons, and the smaller rows would signify their path in life together. An ironic feature of one of the two middle diamonds (which represent their sons) is that it’s slightly chipped. Alma and Michael shared that one of their sons died in a car accident involving fellow band members. The title of their first album? “Shattered.”
