Twists & textures

In my effort to avoid angles, these twisty engagement rings have come up quite a bit. Making the claws flow from the band suggests the band should have a curve to it. Finding the right degree of subtlety for the client is key here. All of these are platinum with white diamonds and either blue diamonds, sapphires or tanzanite. Texturing the band can enhance this a touch more. One of these actually represents the eye of a lion, and the texture of its mane. I focussed on the exact shape of the eye here as I couldn’t put the entire head on her hand, which would have been fun.
