“We thought you’d appreciate and enjoy the following excerpt from our marriage ceremony – the following will be read as our ring exchange:
You’ve both chosen to wear rings as a reminder of these promises. People often say wedding bands are a perfect circle, with no beginning and no end. But these rings did have a beginning. The stones were formed a long time ago deep in the earth. Eventually, a series of lucky events caused them to rise to the surface, where someone dug them up. Metal was then liquefied in a furnace at a thousand degrees — molded, cooled, and painstakingly polished. Something beautiful was made from raw elements. Love is like that. It comes from humble beginnings, and through a combination of serendipity and effort, imperfect beings shape it into something extraordinary. It’s the process of making something beautiful where there was once nothing at all. As you look at these rings over the years, I hope you remember that. You’ve created something invaluable, and just as I know you’ll protect these rings, I’m confident you’ll protect the commitments you’ve made to one other today.
Thank you so much, Mina, for creating a symbol for us to treasure and remind us of our love each day. It means a lot that you are so invested and passionate about creating our rings.”Mila and Aaron
“Just wanted to thank you very much for your effort, thought and love you put into your work. You made the Moonstone whole. Kindest regards and many thanks.”Paul
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your endless patience and kindness to me on my visits. I have enjoyed talking to you so much. I am thoroughly enjoying the Tanzanite ring, and now my other rings have been brought back to life and I may enjoy them again. Best regards.”Barb
“When I asked Mina to create my wedding band I knew without a doubt we would come up with something that is nothing short of an emotional extension of who I am and a representation of what is important to me.
I will be the first to say I really did not have a clue as to what I wanted or envisioned for my special band, but through our conversations, Mina’s patience, guidance and suggestions, she provided me with sketches, notes, and a mock band before she created my original masterpiece. We came up with the perfect piece for what represented who I am. Her communication throughout our project was bar none as she is just as invested to your project as you are. Ultimately the decisions through out our journey were mine, but I always trusted Mina’s professional opinions and suggestions. Creating jewellery pieces is not a`job`but a passion for Mina. You can feel her excitement, enthusiasm and commitment to you.
Mina listens, thinks and then creates pieces that when you wear them you know within your heart she understands her client`s vision and reproduces those visions into an art form like none other.”Justine
