New Diamonds!

Sample of new diamonds! I will have some more pictures of remaining stock after Feb 14th….enjoy!

Exciting News

I am so excited!

I will be getting some diamond setting training in Feb! Its a 4 day intensive training program from my own home studio.  I will get an intro to engraving, setting stones in wax, pave, flush, gypsy cabochon, fishtail, cat’s claw etc.

After my training I hope to finally make some beautiful pave diamond slice necklaces and rings! I will most likely offer in silver until I am confident enough to work in gold.

I got some pictures from my supplier of the custom cut slices and they look AMAZING! I will send these out in the next newsletter for those on my mailing list.  More info on the tiny rose cut diamonds noted in the post below, size range is 2-4mm.

And I have some more diamonds on order! Fancy color round rose cuts,  low clarity but ‘gem’ quality in pink, yellow etc. I also have some color treated diamond slices coming in shades of blue and maybe even pink! The color treatment is unpredictable so I am not sure what the results will be….I may also get some solid black slices 🙂

My stock is on order and there are still some custom stones being sourced for color. I am aiming to have everything in hand by end of Feb.

Final Stock of Rose Cut Diamonds and Slices

Here is another sample photo of the stock arriving soon! I am getting 29 new tambuli rose cut diamonds from 4-8mm size (rounds), 48 new slices (mixed sizes, mostly in the 4-6mm range) and 75 tiny tambuli rose cut diamonds in 1-2mm sizes to make some very delicate jewelry.

And a very special heart shaped diamond slice!

I will be listing lots of new jewelry over the next couple weeks. First set includes bangles and necklaces only since I am quite lacking in this category. The second set will be a couple earrings and lots of new rose cut and slice rings!

Please contact me if you have any questions.

New Diamond Slices

Here is a new batch of fancy color, mixed size diamond slices. The tambuli rose cuts are still in progress (selecting unique colors!).

The details of these slices will be posted on my website in about 2 weeks when they arrive. The diamonds are truly one of a kind and will make a great gift for your loved one 🙂

More Rose Cut Diamonds and Diamond Slices

Another small lot coming in from my supplier, tiny but beautiful rose cuts along with some fancy diamond slices!

I am working on getting a gorgeous set of tambuli diamonds (6mm+) and even more flat diamonds in mixed shapes and sizes. These should give me a real challenge to test my bezel making skills so I am excited!

Here are some pics from my supplier, look out for details on my website over the next week!

New Rose Cut and Flat Diamond Stock

I apologize for lack of updates. I got a new puppy and for the last 3 months my work and part of my life has been on hold (haha).

Anyways, sales have slowly been increasing and I have been working hard to get new customers to join my mailing list. There is alot of competition out there but its best to remain positive and work hard 🙂

To plan my inventory for the upcoming holidays I have been working with my suppliers to buy some new and lovely stock of flat and rose cut diamonds. Here is a sampling of what is on its way…plus with some left over cash I am going to invest into some tambuli and polki diamonds too (Indian cuts!!).

You can view in better detail the stock once it arrives and is up on my website www.priyankasodhi.com.

Enjoy!

Diamond Slice Ring

My first diamond slice ring in 14K white gold. It was a struggle to create this piece because of the brittle nature of white gold…maybe the solder I was using was not good quality or something because it kept pitting. I used a good flux, strong enough flame and pieces were clean of dirt…..any suggestions or tips on soldering white gold without it cracking later would be helpful for my next attempt!

Rose Cut Diamond Pendant

I love how this tiny pendant turned out. It reminds me of a bindi! I have discovered a very unique and exciting method of creating bezels for these tiny diamonds and cannot wait to try out some more projects! I have uploaded several new projects in my shop, check them out!
