I love how this one turned out. My client had a pretty good idea of what he wanted from the very beginning and wanted to include a blue aquamarine in the finished piece. This asymmetric design works so well with just the right amount of diamonds to balance out the brightness of the blue aquamarine. I feel like I'm at the beach every time I look at these photos.
As with most pieces of jewellery, there are so many different ways to make this ring. I prefer to make the centre setting separately and solder it in place and then carve the smaller settings around it out of a solid piece of metal. It can be very rough at this point with a long way to go but I stop regularly and place the stones back onto the setting to make sure everything sits well as I'm carving.
We used a pear cut aquamarine, diamonds and white gold for this unique engagement ring.
Coloured gemstones for engagement rings have become quite popular in the last couple of years and it's easy to see why! I love working with such a broad range of beautiful stones.
