Fusion Sea Fan Coral Ring with a 1.35ct Natural Rose-Cut Red Diamond

Fusion Sea Fan Coral Ring with a 1.35ct Natural Rose-Cut Red Diamond 
Well it seems I've been bitten by the Natural Diamond bandit and I love it! It's soooo me.

I've never been a huge fan of "prongs" or White Diamonds for that matter but the Natural Rose-Cut Diamonds have my name written all over it. I have a client who wanted a silver ring but wanted a white diamond in the setting, it just didn't sound right to me so I started looking around and found these beautiful natural diamonds. I purchased one for him and I purchased one for myself...and here is the wax model I sculpted around the stone. It's a 1.35ct Natural Rose Diamond, Pear shaped and RED with fire inside the stone. Band is 1/2" wide.

This ring will be displayed at the Verace's Gallery in St. John, VI

I'll try to do a quick sketch showing the details. It will be cast in Sterling Silver & 14k Yellow gold and it's a one-of-a-kind ring as well.


No price yet, I haven't weighed the piece but I'll do that asap...just wanted to show what's being made in my studio this week.

Ocean Reef Sea Fan Coral Cuff Bracelet

Sea Fan Coral Cuff Bracelet

This has been floating in my head for some time, I guess it just needed to let the design spill out so that I can add some more designs to my brain, I guess I have limited space up there. My teacher told me once, I needed to get crackin' on the sketches! He told me, I was going to go broke if I tried to make every one of my designs that I came up with.

So while I'm in the drawing mode, I have at least 5 different hinge options available for this piece...I think the next thing I'll draw, are all of my hinge options. Being taught by a Master Jeweler from Germany is that they are all about the functioning details...he loved the mechanics of jewelry making.

He didn't teach me how to design or how to carve wax, that's was already in me but he did teach me about all the different ways a piece of jewelry could be made and that was priceless.
