●Rough Raw Diamond; 4.46ct

●Size: 7 (can be resized)

●Top of Both rings together: 18.80mm

●6.80mm bottom width

This is what our rings look like prior to casting. This is your chance to pick what color of solid gold you want it to be. You can mix and match, having the engagement ring cast in Rose Gold and the wedding band to be cast in White Gold for that two-tone look. If you want to do two colors of gold for each piece please send us a message or add it to the notes section at checkout. Thank you!

The Lost Wax Method:

Each piece is designed and hand sculpted by Dawn using the lost wax method. We found that working in wax allows Dawn to model the fine details that she sees in nature and incorporate it into her work.

One-of-a-kind Ring


Each one of Dawn's one-of-a-kind rings starts with a unique diamond that allows her to use it as a canvas for sculpting the wax around the diamond. Each ring is hand sculpted and cast in place, meaning we cast the diamond and the wax at the same time. It's a process that Dawn has embraced as an artist that allows her to be creative without limitations.

Cast-in-place is the safest way to secure your diamond. Being that the gold flows around the diamond during casting, and shrinks slightly holding the diamond in the setting.

There are no molds on OOAK creations, I do each one out of love.

●Once you pick the color of gold you want for this ring, it will be cast and ready to ship to you.

This ring can only be cast in 14k or 18k gold. Silver is unavailable for this ring.

●Your rings will come with a ring box and a small ring tote.

Please message us with any questions you may have.

Item Details

Made to Order

Gemstone: Diamond

SHOWN: 14k Yellow Gold 

Made-to-Order Custom Twig Engagement Ring using a Premium Uncut Rough Diamonds in solid Gold.

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.

Rough Uncut Raw Diamond

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.

Hand Sculpted & Hand Cut Purple Sapphire Gemstone 

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 by me to mimic little twigs with tiny branches holding a artistically hand cut in our studio.

This is a 1.8ct carat Purple Sapphire, cut from our rough uncut gemstones.

The Band is cast in 14k Rose Gold with textured bark markings.

Your ring will come with a black velvet pouch and a black ring box.

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.

This Blue Montana Sapphire was hand cut using a very old Jamb Peg Machine which is a device used in faceting gems comprising a piece of wood containing a series of holes in which a dop stick can be fixed at varying angles. These are hand cut so the faceting is not a calibrated and may be slightly uneven with slight imperfections in the sapphire.
