One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is working together with clients to create a meaningful piece of jewelry. What makes the design process even more special, is when my muse is not only a designer, but also a good pal and artist. Such is the story of my dear friend interior designer Diana Uribe, a fellow Ecuadorian also residing and working in Miami, and of the "Dionne" ring I designed especially for her.

Diana and I have many things in common, including our belief in a little night magic, and that sometimes, it is only during those after hours that one can dream and get inspired. Since Diana is attracted to the "dark side", it was only natural that when we started thinking of the piece, we both immediately gravitated towards black diamonds. To keep things from getting too intense, and bring out the beauty of the black diamonds we also added bright and shiny white diamonds to the mix, just like a starry night.

Design is all about perception, and Diana's philosophy is that we are all connected and should work together. After many years working in the field of interior design she has developed a style based on combining tendencies, colors, materials and shapes. If you love Diana's work as much as I do, make sure you check out her websites www.DidaHome.com and www.Dionne-Design
