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.

Matching Band:

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 in our studio.

The twigs and band are cast in 14k White Gold with textured bark markings.

Our Refined Gold and Gemstones are both Cruelty-Free.

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

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.
