We showed our Facebook followers two beautiful rubies and asked them to suggest what fine jewellery we should make and how might they design it. We listened and here is our first piece – a stunning Ruby Ring set in 14 kt white gold.

Elegant. Sophisticated. Brilliant.

 

A Stunning Design

He’d started thinking about changes he wanted to make to his wedding ring about 25 years ago.  Changes that would enhance the ring – just as their years together had enhanced their relationship.

So recently, he sat down with me and with one of his designers (yes, he’s in the business of creativity) and they sketched out his dream.

“Do you mean something like this?,” she’d say as he talked and she sketched.

First, his ring was cut in half and set apart to hold the 3 square cut precious gemstones – Sapphire, Alexandrite – their birthstones and a Diamond – the gemstone of marriage.  To accentuate the gemstones, we set them each inside 2 14 kt gold bars.

A Stunning Design!

We’ll work on hers next.

 

Family Ring

Five years ago, we created the engagement ring and wedding band for this lovely couple’s wedding.  Two children later, he reminds her of his commitment to her with this family ring, resplendent with all of their birthstones;  light blue Alexandrite, two lively Emeralds, and one pale blue Zircon.
