Hi, This a ring I designed and made for the same client that had the sea shell cuff made from my previous post. She had some sapphires from some other jewellery that she wanted crafted into a ring with a similar theme to the cuff I made. Here are some drawings.
Next are some working shots, I went with all the sapphires, as my client really wanted them all put in. As shown in my drawings I wasn't to sure about putting the four stones in the ring, thinking it would look to cluttered and the odd number aesthetic being preferable. But I'm really glad she pushed (gently) for all four. It works and adds extra interest.
The next pictures are of my client wearing the ring. She was very happy and has told me it's like a second skin, which makes me very happy :-)
This ring is hand crafted using sterling silver, 9ct yellow gold, 3 pear cut blue sapphires, one cushion cut Ceylon sapphire and 6 1-2 point diamonds. The finish is a light oxidised patina, and two size hammered textures. Nicole Smith Tasmania Australia.
