Were you following our charity raffle launch in June? We were thrilled to announce the winner of our raffle, Hannah, who had the opportunity to design a bespoke ring alongside Rachel. Here’s the story behind Hannah’s design.


For our raffle we partnered with Ocean Diamonds who generously donated a GIA certified 0.55ct Round Brilliant Diamond, pictured below, to be the centrepiece of the design. Handpicked by local divers from oceans off the coast of South Africa and Namibia, the journey of these diamonds is truly poetic. It begins millions of years ago; the diamonds are carried along by the ocean torrent and become hidden within the seabed, to be collected by teams of skilled divers.

Ocean Diamonds’ ethical credentials are one of the reasons why we love them so much - each diamond is stringently traced from the source and comes complete with a Certificate of Provenance, making them one of the most ethically conscious diamonds available. You can read more about Ocean Diamonds on their website here.


In the initial consultation at our Shoreditch Showroom, Hannah and Rachel discussed incorporating a modern double band into the design to complement the classic round cut diamond. Our Ara ring, pictured below featuring our double signature Knife Edge band, was a big source of inspiration.


A CAD (Computer Aided Design) file was made to bring Hannah’s design to life on screen before being cast in 18ct Yellow Gold. Handcrafted in our Hatton Garden workshops, we added the finishing touches at our showroom. A light polish on the band and we were ready to send the ring off to its new home.

We love a statement double band at RB so we were thrilled to be able to create this design for Hannah. 

We cannot thank everyone who entered enough for their generosity. All of the proceeds raised from the raffle went directly to GirlDreamer, an incredible charitable organisation supporting the next generation of Women of Colour. You can find more about the important work they do here.
