lotus solitaire

Friday, February 21st, 2020
Custom designed & hand-carved Art Deco Lotus 1ct Solitaire in 18K

This solitaire was inspired by art deco and old Egyptian motifs. 18K gold and set with a ‘Hearts & Arrows’ cut 1-carat moissanite (the specific proportion variances of this cut versus the standard brilliant make a difference in a very good way).

It turned out pretty much perfect.

Custom designed & hand-carved Icelandic horse ring, Tanzanite and diamonds, 14K gold

This was a commission for this incredible swirly tanzanite stone. My customer decided she would like to have a portrait of her horse carved on each side. I had never seen an Icelandic horse before (they have CRAZY hair!) and my internet feed is still full of google ads trying to get me to buy an all-inclusive vacation to Reykjavik, stable my horses at a local barn, purchase the newest in riding boots, etc.
