Commission – Opal and Diamond Wedding Ring

Solitaire opal and gold ring, FrontSolitaire opal and gold ring, Side
Wedding rings can come in all shapes and sizes
A young couple came to me with this beautiful black opal to set as a wedding ring. I bezel set two small diamonds on the band of the ring to compliment the colors moving in the stone. The result is a thing of beauty!
Delicate beauty
Opals, in all their firey beauty, are surprisingly delicate. They measure from 5.5 to 6.5 on the Mohs Hardness Scale so they can be easily scratched by metal and glass. I advised them how fragile opals are, but the beauty outweighed the risk. As a preventative measure, she will be wearing a chain to hang it around her neck when doing heavy work.
Do you have any ideas for creating a special ring? Perhaps you’d like to reuse a family heirloom and combine it with new accents, or we could start from scratch and order pieces to put together in a unique way? Let’s get in touch!

Commission – 14kt Yellow Gold and Diamond Wedding Set

His and hers yellow gold and diamond wedding rings

His and Hers

What better way to tie the marital knot than with a 14kt yellow gold and diamond wedding set?

Hers– This customer chose a stunning oval brilliant 1 ct. diamond engagement ring and a fancy wedding band with diamonds set in a stylish alternating curved pattern.

His– For the man, a polished band with a comfort fit. What is comfort fit? The inside of the ring is curved so the ring feels smaller and is less noticeable to the wearer. Shoot me an email and I’ll explain more.

 

Commission – Black Pearl and Diamond White Gold Pendant

Watching Pirates of the Carribean for Halloween?

Hearing about the Black Pearl reminded me of this pendant that I made as a gift for my daughter. I set a small diamond in a white gold v-bail above a beautiful black pearl. It hangs nicely in the above photo on a box chain (kink resistant and good for traveling). It paired very nicely with a pair of black pearl stud earrings.

Sterling Silver and 14kt Gold Pietersite Pendant

Tempest stone in Sterling silver pendant, Game of Thrones

This stone is also called the Tempest stone because of the swirling colors that resemble a storm. It’s a large oval measuring 31 mm x 22.5 mm. Set in a bezel with a Sterling top using the cuttlebone casting technique. To bring out the colors of the stone, I’ve soldered on three 14 kt gold balls as accents. Pietersite is said to help us keep centered on our spiritual being. Great to facilitate meditation, and to catch the eye! I’ve also soldered on a Gold accent on the bail that can accommodate a 3 mm chain. Price: $175.
