Maris' Engagement



Maris, divides her time between Nottingham and New York in her occupation as Art Director for a knitwear design house.

Last year, her Brooklyn-based boyfriend Josh proposed on a romantic break to Cape Cod. Knowing Maris’ discerning tastes he hesitated to commit to a design for the engagement ring preferring to propose with an antique item that had belonged to his family and assurance that Maris could design her own on her return to England.

"I approached Temprell with my idea for an Art Deco piece set with emeralds; a stone with deep association with my family’s roots in Brazil."
