Nature inspired engagement rings

A ring that tells your story?

A ring that tells your story?

I create engagement rings that hold memories of your relationship — allowing you to incorporate any natural textures that hold meaning to you both. Maybe it’s a shell from your favourite beach, a leaf collected on a hike together, or a gumnut from where you went on your first date. Whatever your story, I’ll work with you to create something that’s yours.

How it works

How it works

1 Get in touch.

It all starts with a conversation. Send me an email with your name, details and any ideas you may already have about the ring you’d like to create. 

2 Design. 

We’ll arrange a time to meet at my studio or virtually to bring your ideas alive. I encourage you to bring any natural materials you’d like to work with — then I’ll draft some sketches and keep you updated along the way. 

3 Creation.

When you’re happy with the design, the creation process begins. Allow 1-3 months for me to source your perfect stone and handmake your piece. If you’re hoping to have the ring ready to propose on a certain date, I recommend getting in touch as early as possible.

4 Pop the question!

I’ll let you know as soon as the ring is ready. You can either collect your ring in person from my studio or I‘ll post it to you under registered, express and insured post.

"I felt that designing the ring with Kate was important for us to do together as a couple, so I proposed with one of Kate's shell rings as a 'placeholder'. Kate made it super comfortable and guided me through the entire process. We love Kate's style and she was able to adapt with what was important for us. Not only is the ring so incredibly special, it was such a fun and unique experience in creating our piece together."

Kate’s design process calls on joyful memories shared in nature and
brings them into being in the most artful and delicate way.

One of the things I loved about Kate's process is that we had the chance to make something together. Kate worked with natural textures supplied by me that reference personal experiences of me and my partner, and in this way produced an amazing piece with an understated beauty that tells a story of the relationship.

I think Kelly said ‘yes’ just because she wanted to wear this perfect ring!

We couldn’t have asked for a better experience, both in the planning and creating of our engagement ring and wedding band.

Kate took such care of our requests and ideas and gave us the time and input to help us create the most personal and precious symbols of ourselves and our marriage.

Kate manages to take what you’re thinking and expertly form it into a work of art and incredible beauty!”

“My wedding, engagement and eternity rings had become worn and damaged after wearing them everywhere for the last 24 years.

Kate Macindoe worked alongside me, helping redesign and recycle the old into something absolutely gorgeous and new. I collected a feather from the sea off the coast whilst boating with my husband (Albatross mate for life) and that was the impression for my new engagement ring.

Kate did a wonderful job and I will treasure my new mermaid jewels forever!”
