ginkgo solitaire #3

Custom designed & hand-carved Ginkgo Leaf Solitaire in 18K yellow gold with 1.5ct diamond and small yellow diamond in base

I love LOVE this design. I’ve re-created it now three times over the past decade for three different diamonds and every time it’s my favorite.

This iteration I did more of a brushed/satin finish on the leaves and upper face of the ring, but polished bright the inside and sides you see above, around the bezel leading up to the stone, and the tips of the fluttery ginkgo leaves.

18K with a hair under 1.5ct diamond.

A matte/satin finish really does bring forth the color of the metal. 18K just looks so nice and richly yellow.

The base of the band has a flush-set 2mm yellow diamond. Just a little something-something.
