In this week's edition of Peridot Love Stories, we spoke to the lovely Nerida and Andrew, an adorable couple from Sydney, Australia. They discovered their Anne Sportun wedding bands at Peridot this past summer, and will be married in March of 2015 in their hometown of Sydney! Andrew and Nerida-2 "This picture was taken just after we left the Peridot store in Larchmont and walked back to the train station - we were so happy with our choices and very excited!" Your name: Nerida His name: Andrew How did the two of you meet?: Through a mutual friend who introduced me to Andrew via email when I moved to NYC. I contacted Andrew and we met up at The Slaughtered Lamb in the West Village for a drink early one summer evening. We are actually from the same city in Australia (Sydney). We had traveled very far to meet each other! Where/how did he propose? Back at The Slaughtered Lamb.

Andrew's band is equally as unique - handcrafted by Anne Sportun with hammered yellow gold. It reminds us of home - the Australian beach with sea urchins, rock-pools and waves. What’s one thing you love about him?: Andrew's sense of humor Use one word to describe what kind of bride you are: Excited! What made you choose Peridot?: From our first phone call with Dawn we had great advice, service and care in our important decision. This was, by far, the best experience we'd had in our wedding jewellery search in the NYC and greater New York area. A picture of your wedding. Hasn't happened yet! It's scheduled for 14 March 2015 in Sydney, Australia. Bands 2-2   Nerida and Andrew's rings are by Anne Sportun Fine Jewelry. Nerida's ring is an 18 Karat Yellow Gold Ring with a Single Row of 12 Pave Set Diamonds.   *If you are in the midst of or about to begin your search for the perfect ring, please do not hesitate to contact me at chloe@peridotfinejewelry.com or give us a call at (914) 833-7333.
