There is something that happens in my mind when I get a custom order from another artist, and one who's work I have admired for a long time.  It's a mental game changer, in the way that feel the ring must me created.  When the eyes of another artists examine my work, I have to make sure that it looks exactly the way they envisioned it.  That's the way it goes with every one of my clients, but again, it's a mental perspective.

I chose to make this ring from 22k gold, which is over 91% pure gold.  The metal shows off the beauty of gold more than the lower purity alloys of gold.  It's dense, heavy, and lustrous!  And it's also a dream come true to set diamonds in.  As you can see, the center diamond is set with a snag proof design, ensuring that it won't be a hassle to do all the things one would normally do with their hands.  The setting also protects the diamond without taking away from its beauty.  I bead set the side diamonds on the lower parts of the side of the ring, to ensure the longevity of wear, without taking away from their presentation.

 

As a personal jeweler for people of all types, attention to detail and customer satisfaction are my paramount objectives.  Keep me in mind whenever you are looking for unique, premium quality, and independently created jewelry works, for getting the one you love to say "Yes!"
