We recently had the pleasure of assisting beautiful couple, Ash-Lea & Zac, with creating their new forever engagement ring — The Ash-Lea Ring, aw well as their wedding bands for their special day.

Read on for an exclusive interview, which details their special proposal journey and experience with our Morgan & Co Bespoke Team.

Q. “Was there anything in particular that drew you to work with us?”

A. “Through Zac’s business.”

Laura, one of our business owners, had the pleasure of meeting Zac at a job required at her home on the Sunshine Coast. Known for her warm and engaging nature, Laura struck up a conversation with Zac, delving into their respective lives. During their chat, Laura shared insights about her business, and it just so happened that Zac and his partner, Ash-Lea, were in the process of planning their wedding and seeking an upgrade for Ash-Lea's engagement ring. Subsequently, Zac visited our cosy studio in Buderim, where we transformed their dream jewellery into reality. Laura's exceptional talent for building connections extends to everyone she meets, as she wholeheartedly engages with their stories and aspirations.

Q. “Which ring did you choose/design for your forever piece, and why?”

A. “Classic six claw setting with a brilliant cut diamond, and a simple wedding band with half band diamonds. I wanted a design I’ll never get tired of.”

The Ash-Lea Ring epitomises timeless elegance and enduring beauty. Crafted to withstand the test of time, this engagement ring boasts a brilliant round-cut diamond meticulously hand-selected for its utmost quality. The diamond's mesmerising sparkle effortlessly captures the attention of anyone who sees it. Set within a delicate and secure six-claw setting, this exquisite stone is embraced by an 18ct yellow gold band. Ash-Lea's matching diamond wedding band mirrors the superior quality of her engagement ring. Together, they create a flawless and breathtaking union of elegance.

Q. “What was your favourite part of your Morgan & Co experience?”

A. “I wasn’t expecting much - we had a short timeline and I assumed we could create our wedding bands. But we were able to create a fresh engagement ring as well. The Morgan & Co team have made a beautiful environment to go through the process and make it feel special. There was no rushed feeling, and the ladies were wonderfully helpful.”

All of our pieces are both designed and crafted in Australia, allowing us to offer swift turnaround times. We were delighted to have the opportunity to provide Ash-Lea not only with her and her partner's wedding bands but also with a brand-new engagement ring in time for their special day.

Nestled atop Buderim, our intimate studio is designed to provide our clients with a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere. We understand that selecting an engagement ring and wedding bands is a momentous decision, both sentimentally and financially. Therefore, we are dedicated to offering our clients quotes tailored to their budget, ensuring that we can create a ring that suits their financial preferences, within reasonable limits.

Q. “Tell us a little bit about your proposal.”

“Wow. About 9 years ago myself and Zac were about to start a new chapter in Mexico. We had a few days in Venice Beach CA before we flew down. One morning we rode our bikes to Santa Monica pier to check the surf and I was distracted looking out at the waves, Zac had pulled a ring out of his pocket (which he had sewn in for it not to fall out on the ride) and I turned around… and he asked me to marry him.”

Ash-Lea's Five Star Review 

"Working with the ladies at Morgan & Co was an absolutely lovely experience. We left our wedding rings a bit late in the process and we were pleasantly surprised that we could have our wedding rings and also dream up a fresh engagement ring to go with the new set. The finished result is stunning, more beautiful than I imagined and the all round service from consult to pickup was in one word - 'luxury'."
