Carolines Octopus Inspired Engagment Ring

Graham and Caroline’s story

Graham tells his story...

The inspiration is actually from scuba diving, Caroline was learning to dive when I met her and she managed to convince me to learn too!

We’ve been diving buddies for almost 9 years now and after waiting so long to propose I really wanted to give her something special.

On our first diving holiday together we found an octopus which immediately hid in a hole. Our guide beckoned for Caroline and took off her watch and he tempted the octopus out for us to see with the metal strap sparkling in the sun; apparently they love anything shiny! It seemed perfect then that an octopus should hold the sparkling diamond on Caroline’s ring.

Our story begins on a diving adventure

Making the ring

Making the ring

The engagement ring was hand crafted by our chief goldsmith, Richard. A very intricate piece of workmanship where stylised legs of an octopus appear to wrap around the central stone.

The Finished Ring

The ring holds an H SI brilliant cut diamond set into platinum. The octopus body is subtly included in the design using a series of hand worked sections and finishes.
