Orchids & butterflies

Sculpted stone settings are my favourite challenge. They frequently need to be dainty and not too shouty, which is tricky for the bombastic sculptor in me, but it pays off. Here, two back-to-back butterflies perch with a purple sapphire pinched between their wing tips. On the sides of the band are stems of orchids with tiny 1mm diamonds set in them.

One of the hardest parts of a ring like this is the polishing. Getting minute scratches out of recesses without obliterating the detail above is mind numbingly painstaking, but pays off wonderfully.
