Gemstone: Hand Cut Ruby

I have waited exactly two years staring at my faceting tools until now. Creating our own hand cut gemstones is a milestone for me, it's like everything I envisioned for my hand sculpted designs has finally come full circle. I truly hope you see my vision in giving you a true one-of-a-kind ring.

Each design was created in wax to mimic little twigs with tiny branches holding a artistically hand cut gemstone in our studio.

Our Refined Gold and Gemstones are all Cruelty-Free.

Why have I chosen to hand cut our Gemstones:

Gemstone material that has not been extensively cut and polished is referred to as "Rough".

Rough material that has been hammered to knocked off the brittle fractured edges is said to have been cobbled.

So, what I have chosen to do is remove the brittle fractures by hand polishing our rough gemstones in our studio here in North Carolina and allowing a longer lifespan of the stone for our customers. A stone that has been hand cut is a stronger stone and in my opinion a safer stone to have.

To keep the integrity of the rough gemstones, we only remove the brittle edges and keep true to the unique shape of the original rough gemstone. This way we can create a beautiful artistically cut gemstone that is still Cruelty-Free but very unique in shape.

This is my way of giving you a true one-of-a-kind hand sculpted and hand cut ring.

Hand Sculpted Leaf and Twig Ring using the Lost Wax Method by Dawn Vertrees

Hand Sculpted One of a kind
Hand Cut Rough 1.5ct Ruby

We will be testing our first hand cut ruby on Wednesday 6/5/2019 which will be cast in place with the wax that I have sculpted around the stone (shown). Although we have successfully cast our rough uncut diamonds and gemstones for 8 years with only a few mishaps, casting our hand cut gemstones should reduce that number to zero.

GEMSTONE SET IN WAX CASTING has evolved over the past 10 years from a secret process used by a few manufacturers to a commonly used method. 

Lost wax method
Our Popular
Three Leaf Design cast in 14k Gold
GEMSTONES SUCCESSFULLY CAST IN PLACE ARE: Diamond, Ruby, Sapphire, Garnet Gemstones.

GEMSTONES NOT RECOMMENDED ARE: Emerald, Opal, Jade, Amethyst, Topaz, Peridot. 

Aquamarine, Tourmaline, Topaz, Pearl, Lapis Lazuli, Turquoise and Onyx as these gemstones may burn, crack or discolor when exposed to high heat.

GEMSTONES SELECTED FOR CASTING IN PLACE should be high quality, dimensionally accurate, free of flaws and inclusions that can turn milky, frosty or crack when heated.

Engagement Ring
SUCCESS!!!
DESIGNS SELECTED FOR CASTING IN PLACE must allow support in at least 2 places by the surrounding investment instead of the traditional 4 or 6 prong setting. The gemstones need to be held in place securely to withstand investing, burn out and casting without coming loose.

Rough Uncut Rough Diamond Ring, Twig and Leaf Engagement Ring with a Twig Style Band, Solid Gold and Diamond Ring, Unique Engagement Ring Hand Sculpted.

There is something inside me that appreciates the details found in nature. Whether its in the shape of the leaves and how they touch each other, the tree's many textures or how the limbs reach out to the sky. I see it all as something that grows with passion and has a valuable purpose in our lives. I want that exact feeling in every ring I create.

Those same thoughts go into every design I create in my studio. When I sit down at my bench, I will look at that diamond or gemstone and visualize how those limbs will hold that little jewel up in the air. I want to sculpt the branches and leaves as if its a presentation to you, so I hope you find something of mine that touches your heart as much as it has touched mine.

What are Rustic Diamonds?

Engagement Rings
Rustic Diamond
with hand sculpted leaves.


WHAT ARE RUSTIC DIAMONDS?


Well, simply put, they are diamonds that are included. Perfect in their imperfections. The look is a kind of smoky stone touched with streaks of contrasting color. I love the warm, sparkly, glow that emanates from them.

Sometimes they have tiny little surface inclusions that were created during the growing process and this only enhances their individual and artisan quality.

The thing I love about rustic diamonds is that each one is perfectly unique.


Additional Pictures & Price, Click Here

They have a wonderful organic, earthy look and feel about them; that is both understated and glam all at the same time. A quiet luxury if you will.

 Rustic diamonds are usually rose cut. Rose cuts date back to the 16th century and were popular before the classical round shape came into fashion. 

They have a flat bottom and a crown which is made up of tiny triangle facets. Each of our diamonds are Cruelty-Free and are not heat treated or glass filled.

What do you think? Can you see yourself falling in love with these one-of-a-kind beauties?

Engagement Ring
Hand Cut Free Form Opal
 As Welo opal from Ethiopia is a comparative newcomer to the world of opal, having been discovered as recently as 2008, scholars and others have yet to settle on describing and officially naming the various patterns found in this magnificent opal material. For instance, this gorgeous stone can recognizably be described as having a “flagstone” or “blocky” or “ribbon” pattern”.

The fact remains that some patterns are extremely rare while others are common in the entire range of Welo opal. The colorful patches in this charming stone are dynamic, changing with each movement in the light and regardless of what you choose to call it, it is indeed a splendid stone.

It is difficult to capture these dynamic patterns with a camera but I can confidently indicate to you that this stone is significantly better in person. The diverse world of Welo opal patterns is rich for exploration and naming.
