Made-to-Order 14k Twig & Leaf Raw Uncut Diamond Bridal Set, Engagement Ring using a Rough Diamonds, Engagement with Band by Dawn Vertrees

I wanted to create a delicate yet beautiful Leaf and Twig Engagement Ring using an Uncut Raw Diamond, so I sculpted the branch band first and then I hand sculpted 6 natural flowing leaves along with their stems that reach up and embrace the uncut diamond. These are truly elegant wedding rings that will flatter her finger.

Charlotte Observer - Silver & Gold, Stones & Wax

What an Honor!

I was blown away when my Mom called and said, You made it on the front page of Charlotte Style!  I was in the studio and hadn't made it out that day but once my husband came home, he was carrying a small stack of Newspapers....you could tell, he was beaming with pride. He has so much confidence in my work, LOL...probably more than I do.

It was so important for me to come back to NC to make my jewelry and then to be recognized this way, it's an amazing feeling.

I can't thank Olivia Fortson (writer) and Kiran Dodeja Smith (photographer) for visiting my studio and getting to know me and my work...what awesome people to meet.

I ofter kid around with people that I wear bunny slippers to work but Olivia was right, I actually curl up my legs in my chair looking at my mandrel, visualizing my next project, and yes...barefoot and very happy with my job.

Leaf and Twig Aquamarine Ring

Aquamarine Leaf & Twig Ring

This Aquamarine is 12.5mm x 10mm x 5mm which screamed creating a low profile ring-band type ring. 
I added 6 hand sculpted leaves, four used as post and two in the front and back to create a round look to the setting. This is going to be one of those great everyday rings.

Raw Uncut Aquamarine Gemstone
Mohs Scale: 7.5 to 8
12.5mm x 10mm x 5mm (depth)
At this time, it's a size 7.25 but can be sized before casting.
Cast in Sterling Silver $295
Free US Shipping

Imperial Topaz Leaf and Twig Ring

I may not give this one up.

Number 1 Reason...Topaz is my birthstone plus I have ditched the typical prong concept and use my leaves as prongs which allow this design to be totally organic. Everything has a natural organic look, from the uncut raw imperial topaz stone to sculpting the ring to mimic Twigs, stems and leaves...just beautiful.

Sterling Silver
Uncut 9mm x 12mm Imperial Topaz
Mohs Scale: 8
Current size is 6 3/4

Leaf, Twig, Aquamarine and Tourmaline Gemstone Ring

While my Amethyst Ring is being made, I've been working on a few more rings for men & women.

This is a Leaf & Twig design wax model ready to cast. It has a 18mm x 8mm curved Aquamarine Stone that just sparkles. The stone actually is curved which lead me to create this design. 

Mohs scale (diamonds being 10) is a 7.5 to 8 out of 10 which is awesome for this ring because I did not create a typical setting which is not typical of me nor is have the sides of the ring being identical. 

At this time, it's a size 13 but can be sized before casting.
Cast in Sterling Silver $520
Free US Shipping

While in the same mode, below I have sculpted a women's Leaf & Twig Ring with a
raw crystal 15mm x 6mm Blue Tourmaline with a Mohs Scale of 7-7.5

At this time, it's a size 8 but can be sized before casting.
Cast in Sterling Silver $295
Free US Shipping
