Sapphire Lens

Remember the diamond shaker ring from a few posts ago? Here is a petite version of that ring! I will set tiny (1-2mm) fancy color rough diamonds (blue, green, yellow, orange, champagne, white and pink!) into these tiny bezels and cover them with real sapphire lens!

It will be a very limited product with only 50 being made. The band will be slim and set around the bezel so its a flush fit to the hand. They can still be layered quite nicely however due to the tiny size.

These rings will be part of a crystal collection which will also include diamond entrusted vials holding sapphires or rough diamonds! These are extremely limited with only 2-4 pieces being made. I will be posting these in my shop next week.

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.

Conflict Free Diamonds

I love working with diamonds, they have a sparkle that cannot be beat by any other gemstone. I also love working with conflict free stones. I only deal with a few suppliers and their receipts come with a note guaranteeing that the gemstones and diamonds supplied are conflict free plus they are very reputable companies in the US and one or two are abroad. I am glad the awareness for conflict free jewelry is increasing!

Fab Finds

These beautiful little pear shaped diamonds are full of fire and are in great shades of yellow, grey and white! I have no idea how to bezel set these yet but I am definitely going to try! A traditional claw setting would not be too bad either but bezel setting these and creating some delicate stacking rings would be great!
