Crowned pear diamond solitaire with tiny gold carved man & woman down the sides of the ring

This was inspired by the epic Black Crowned Heart ring I made last year, but altered a little to be more of an engagement ring, scaled down for more daily wear.

The stones are a center salt & pepper pear-shaped diamond, with an emerald and two periodots in the crown (the couple’s birthstones).

18K Custom Oak Leaves + twig wedding bands

A pair of 18K custom designed & carved wedding bands with oak leaves & branches. Such a pretty motif! I feel like everything I put an oak leaf on just can’t help but look good.

18K white rococo pearl solitaire - south sea pearl + diamonds

Rococo Leaves Pearl Mounting in 18K white gold with a honkin awesome South Sea beauty! Two little diamonds are set in the shoulders as well

I love love love this pearl mounting and might need to make one for ME to wear. That means I have to make the decisions I force my clients to make: WHICH pearl?! A peacocky black Tahitian? I do have a fondness for those pistachio silvery green ones too.. What about going craaazy and using something pink? A giant peachy pink metallic awesomeness set in 18K yellow. YUM! But then that 18K white gold is so lovely with its antique ivory color.. I wonder how a gold pearl, set in white gold, with two tiny yellow diamonds in the shoulder would look? This is probably why I don’t wear a lot of jewelry—too many options make for too tough of a decision.
