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.


Custom Design – Past, Present, Future

OPal choices

Remember the 2 opals?  For John’s custom design engagement ring, we were looking for the perfect centre for her ring.  Her favourite colour is green so he chose the opal with that precise viridescence.

Symbolism for love so often focuses on the past, the present and the future. So it does in this custom design ring.

John wanted to include the diamond from his grandmother’s ring and diamonds from his mother’s ring representing a foundation and strength as part of his family history.  The viridescent opal represents the present.  The love they share.

We searched and found a lovely matching diamond to balance grandma’s diamond.

An Opal is a precious gem stone that must be carefully mounted to protect it. Therefore, we chose a bezel setting to highlight and protect the stone.

John reviewed the wax mould to be sure the custom design was what he envisioned.  His excitement at seeing the ring nearing completion was palpable.  It’s so rewarding to go through this step because John has the opportunity to really see what the ring will look like rather than just work with drawings.

Presenting John with the finished ring was such a pleasure.  He loves it.  Of course, he does- he put his heart into it and it’s absolutely beautiful.
