Just finished polishing this beautiful set of rings, headed for Australia Express Mail today. The River design is usually ordered in a matte finish, but this one is polished, which I kind of like. It's too bad Charles and Colvard is discontinuing (or has discontinued) rose cut moissanite. I may still make this ring, but with a diamond or other stone.
There's been some interest in the Rain design as a wedding or engagement ring, so here it it is a new 2 mm (3.5 mm at top) width, in 14k yellow gold. I think it would be a nice design for anyone who really doesn't like the idea of a stone, or wants something a little bit less traditional. And I love this custom rose cut ruby oval ring in 14k yellow gold. I'm trying to find a source for more of the rubies in this size. It's natural, with nice color variation and a beautiful cut. Hopefully I can find some more!
I love how this custom ring came out! It's a 6 mm rose cut moissanite with a platinum bezel and 14k rose gold band, in my River design. A custom version of this piece: https://www.etsy.com/listing/170650583/rose-cut-moissanite-engagement-ring-in
Most of the botanical pieces I make come from species found here in New York, but I recently made a twig wedding ring in 14k palladium white gold for a customer who sent me branches from a southern live oak. These oak trees are very different from the ones here. Their leaves stay green in the winter, so they're a type of evergreen, and the twigs and leaves are very different in shape. And they grow huge, and often have moss hanging off of them in the south. My customer was nice enough to let me use the mold of her twig to make more pieces. Right now I have them cast in sterling silver, but can make them in other metals.
Here's the 14k palladium white gold version:
Here are a couple more custom orders. The first one is a Shoreline engagement ring in palladium 950 and the second is a willow branch ring which will be used as a wedding band. Palladium is one of my favorite metals!
Finally finished this custom order! Rough orange garnet engagement ring set in oxidized 14k palladium white gold.
This recent custom engagement ring had a fair trade green montana sapphire and was cast in 14k palladium white gold.
