The Ice and Snow Ring is complete! I'm in LOVE with this moonstone! It has just enough translucency to cast a bit of a cats-eye effect as light passes through it. The flush set gray diamonds add a lively sparkle to the subtle glow of the center stone but are similar enough in color to the surface metal that they are a bit of an unexpected surprise. This combination of stones and oxidized silver is so lovely that I am inspired to design more
pieces just so I can keep working with these beautiful
gems! It's actually kind of difficult to design for myself because I keep seeing new possibilities and changing course-but this ring is satisfying my craving for a mysterious-sparkly-imperfect-vintage-every-day-finger-jewel (for the moment, at least!)
Jewelry design is an exciting process and I'm glad you've shared the journey of my birthday ring! How would you design yours?
