Our own Christine Razny talks Wedding Day Inspiration and Her Custom Bez Ambar Ring
No first is more celebrated than that born of love. We at Razny Jewelers are proud that so many couples begin their happily ever after with us. We are especially proud to celebrate the love and engagement of our own Christine Razny, third-generation owner of Razny Jewelers, to Jimmy Porter. “His family has been clients of our store for more than 30 years,” Christine relates. It has been a joy to watch her love story unfold beautifully right before our eyes.
Modern Luxury Weddings magazine features a chat with our bride-to-be inside their Fall/Winter 2017 issue, and it’s too good not to share. The glossy bridal book recounts how Jimmy anonymously sent Christine a bouquet of flowers after receiving a tip from her father. A few days later, they went on their first date and have been inseparable ever since. While on a business trip to Switzerland, Christine noticed a man who looked suspiciously like her boyfriend standing under a night sky. “I realized it was my boyfriend and he was about to propose!”
Her fiancé worked with legendary jewelry designer Bez Ambar, creator of the princess cut diamond, to craft Christine’s custom engagement ring. The 3-carat masterpiece features an elongated cushion-cut diamond surrounded by a halo of the artist’s signature Blaze™ cut diamonds.
As a reminder of her late grandfather, Christine will wear a pair of heirloom diamond-and-pearl earrings. “They were the last piece of jewelry my grandfather made,” she says.
