Sleeping Winged Rat pendant in 18K yellow gold with australian opal

I was sketching some ideas for fantastic insects, and landed here. And I love him! He’s in my shop, and is offered in 14K or 18K, white or yellow gold and you have a choice of stone. Here I have pictured an Australian crystal opal, but anything around 4mm would work: diamond, faceted or cabochon emerald or other colored stone, birthstone for example..

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.

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

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.

Custom designed & hand-carved Snake Ring set with a 2ct antique pear diamond, 18K gold

This amazing antique diamond needed a setting.. And since there can never be too many snake rings, it seemed like just the perfect thing. 1.95ct antique pear-cut diamond (with a crazy high-profile table & nice fat culet!) and 18K yellow gold. I LOVE how this guy turned out.

Custom designed & hand-carved Peach Tourmaline Solitaire with Sweet Peas motif, 14K gold

This is a custom Sweet Pea motif setting created for this gorgeous peach-colored tourmaline. I carved it very 3-dimensional, and made little windows on the sides so that you could see the pavilion below the bezel (which also allows additional light to enter the stone, making it brighter).
