A Glimpse behind the Bench.

Liloveve Designer, Caroline Glemann, recently created this gorgeous custom engagement ring. The piece is a vintage-inspired platinum ring with a beautiful center-set saphire stone and mill grain detailing.

Here is a quick portrait of her design process, from start to finish.
