A dainty, delicate and yet defiant ring, with a mixture of champagne and pale grey rose cut diamonds, cast not set, on an elegant hand textured band.
Delicate, earthy, and always a one of a kind piece, the pale and pastel hues of rose, champagne and cool grey diamonds so complement each other, as the subtle rose cut stones catch and sparkle in the light.
Each and every ring is hand made to order, and created using a unique technique called "cast in place".
I use an ancient Egyptian art form of sculpting into wax, that is then set into heatproof plaster, and fired in a kiln allowing the wax to melt away leaving a cavity in the plaster, for molten metal to then be poured in. This is called 'lost wax' because that one original carving is then forever lost. The process is nothing short of a gamble, each time your intricately crafted piece is put to cast there is a humbling element of chance involved, and this is all part of what makes the process so thrilling.
The technique of adding stones to the wax carving is known as "Cast in Place". By using heat to sink stones into the wax and build wax up around the stones, I work these gems into my creations, allowing the heat to lead and the stones to move as they will. The goal is this sweet spot where there is enough space around the stone to allow the plaster to pin it in place during the burnout, and enough wax around the stone to hold it secure once cast, but sparingly enough to create a unique and visually precarious setting, without a traditional bezel or prongs.
This ring is shown here in 10 karat Yellow Gold, a pale, creamy and beautiful gold that is by far underestimated, it's a cool and elegant gold and a personal favorite. It is also available in 18karat Rose Gold and 18kt Yellow. I love this with demi-set stone coverage as shown here, but eternity set with stones all the way around is also an option.
