Romancing the stone
Love and care go into designing a custom ring

The Calgary Herald and - June 7, 2014 

When Jim Bell decided to surprise his wife Marilyn with a custom ring for their 10th anniversary, he took his design to his favourite jeweller 10 months ahead of time.  He wasn't worried about how long it would take; he was looking forward to the experience.

Jim and Marilyn had designed her wedding bands, based on her vision of a piece of lace set with a yellow diamond, as well as other pieces over the years.

According to Peter Kangas, of Kangas Diamonds and Custom Jewellery, most people who are looking for custom rings are not young newlyweds, they are couples like Jim and Marilyn, who have been together for more than a few years.  They usually have a design in mind and are looking for something distinctive and unique from jewellers like Peter, who can, as Jim says, "Draw out of you what you would like to see."
