The Bachelor SA Ring
The Bachelor Ring is designed by Jack Friedman in conjunction with Lee Thompson. Lee wanted Jack Friedman to create a unique design that would symbolize unity, eternal love and happiness.
The design was made with Lee’s words in mind. The two sides that “embrace” the centre Halo symbolise this lady and Lee coming together to form one family.
The name for this design is “Luce de Sol” – Light of the sun – or Rays of light from the sun – as closer inspection of the ring will showcase the diamonds surrounding the centre diamond have the appearance of Sun Rays.
Why Jack Friedman?
Jack Friedman has always prided ourselves on the custom designed rings we have made. Our jewellers are award-winning with exquisite talent and have the highest passion for jewellery design.
When the opportunity to showcase our exquisite designs and master craftsmanship came about through South Africa’s very first Bachelor, we knew no one could be the better “ring man” to Lee. It was an honour and a very pleasant experience to invite him into our stores, to find out more about what he wanted, and to learn as much as possible to best assist him in creating the ring that he would present to the woman of his dreams.
