With These Rings...


Nick noticed Odessa as he embarked on his long evening commute home one February evening in Chicago. 

Many dates followed and, four years later, he started making plans to propose on an upcoming vacation to Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic.

Unbeknownst to Odessa, Nick contacted me to design & create an engagement ring for his intended proposal on the island. 


With less than a week before their departure, I got to work on a three-stone diamond engagement ring for Odessa. 

The couple wrote the following on their wedding website: "The engagement ring is beautiful! We want to thank Nick’s cousin, Julia Failey for creating an amazing ring. We get compliments on the ring all the time. And we are especially proud that a family member was able to design and create a ring that we cherish so much." 


Nick and Odessa were married in June. I was honored to create a diamond contour band & a beveled-edge band for the couple to exchange on their wedding day. 

Welcome to the family, Odessa ~ Congratulations to you both!
