David & Lili

David Johnson popped the question to Lili Wenzel on the top of the tallest mountain in Madagascar, with a ring he carved himself from a coconut shell – very romantic, but they knew they needed rings that would reflect their love of nature and active lifestyle and Jens Hansen jewellers were the perfect fit for the job.

‘Everything about Jens Hansen appealed’ says Dave. ‘The quality of the craftsmanship, the story, and how ready and willing they were to work with us to create our vision.’

‘We often look at the Richmond Ranges in Nelson and plot where we’ll go next. I wanted to replicate that skyline in my ring, and Jens Hansen figured out how. We couldn’t be happier with the result.’

Dave’s 9 carat gold band shows the ranges, while Lili’s rings feature sapphires from her mother’s engagement ring, evoking the sea, with a unique finish to mimic woodgrain. Since marrying, they founded Share My Pet, a way for more people to spend time with all kinds of cuddly animals. We can’t help but love it!
