Diamonds

Very varied styles here from classic diamond engagement rings to rings that are more ‘out there’. I had particular fun with the rocky one. I wanted the diamonds to look like they’d boiled out of the metal in some ancient volcano. The yellow gold ring here is an Ohm sign made into three round diamonds, again balancing subtlety and sentiment. It had to mainly look like three lovely diamonds.

Princess cut and emerald cut diamonds offer a crisper feel. However, the stone set on the diagonal here is inherited and the client was after a much more organic feel, so we thrashed it out with lots of sketches and finally twigged that sticking it at an angle fit wonderfully in a much more flowing band. Don’t tell anyone, but one of these actually is a Herkimer Diamond, a type of quartz crystal from Herkimer County, New York.
