New Leaf and Twig Custom Design in Progress by Dawn - Dawn Vertrees Jewelry Designs


This is a new design that came to me yesterday afternoon, so I quickly started on the project around 1pm. The wax model is still in the design process, but I thought I would share this new design with you.

This will be a cast-in-place wax model using a 2.8ct rough low profile diamond. 
I will add a link at the bottom to
describe the cast-in-place process. 

The wax and the diamond will be cast together making this a very strong ring and because of this technique, I only need two twig prongs to hold the diamond in place.

 Another unique feature I love in my designs is the non-traditional setting under the stone. I want to carry the twig design on top as well as the bottom. Please keep in mind, I only have about 5 hours in this model so it is still in the rough.

Before I go to far with the Solitaire, I start designing the 2nd band. I'm starting with the leaf band first and then I will design a twig band option.

Once I complete the designs, I will start fine tuning the wax models and the last step is adding the texture to the leaves and twigs.

This concept can be modified in so many ways other than going all twig, or adding leaves.

This will be a one-of-a-kind using the cast-in-place process.

Unless it is sold prior to casting, I want to use 14k Rose Gold, Antiqued.
