Lark

From above, this platinum and diamond ring had to look as simple and classic as possible, but from the sides the central stone is held between the wings of a pair of larks ascending.  This perfectly tackles the need for a balance of subtlety, sentimentality, elegance and, perhaps most importantly, fun for me. The woman this was designed for (in secret) plays the violin and her favourite piece is ‘The Lark Ascending’, plus in her parents’ garden there are larks that actually ‘ascend’, which is supposedly quite rare. The central diamond is just shy of a carat and the setting details had to be very, very subtle and tasteful. The idea is that the wearer can show her friends if she wants, but it isn’t an automatic talking point. The larks on this ring are only about 6mm across the wing tips, so this is a very dainty ring.

Description

From above, this lark engagement ring ring had to look as simple and classic as possible, but from the sides the central stone is held between the wings of a pair of larks ascending.  This perfectly tackles the need for a balance of subtlety, sentimentality, elegance and, perhaps most importantly, fun for me. The woman this was designed for (in secret) plays the violin and her favourite piece is ‘The Lark Ascending’, plus in her parents’ garden there are larks that actually ‘ascend’, which is supposedly quite rare.

The central diamond is just shy of a carat and the setting details had to be very, very subtle and tasteful. The idea is that the wearer can show her friends if she wants, but it isn’t an automatic talking point. The larks on this ring are only about 6mm across the wing tips, so this is a very dainty ring.

The ring is set with a just under 1 carat diamond and 2 x 3mm, 2 x 2.5mm, 2x2mm diamonds in platinum.
