new turquoise cocktail rings!

turquoise, diamond, sterling silver and 18K cocktail ring

Chinese turquoise, diamond, sterling silver, and 18K gold. The silver has been patinaed a deep gray and then brushed bright silver on the outsides of the ring. The band is rounded on the inside and has an adorable little ginkgo leaf stamp that I had made a million years ago but haven’t used too much. I need to use it more because it is pretty cool.

Japanese lilypond cocktail ring (turquoise and sterling silver)

Finally, I’ve finished the ring using this awesome turquoise. I think it looks like a Japanese lily pond, maybe photographed using an infrared filter. Anyway, I just love this piece and hope I’ve done it justice with the ring mounting.

The bottom is pierced with a floral pattern so you catch a glimpse of the lilypads on the bottom of the stone and the whole thing floats off the three-cornered band by a couple of millimeters.

A thought regarding the ring shot being worn. So far, I have been just taking a photo of my hand against the same linen backdrop I use for the rest of the shots. I was taking outdoor photos of necklaces the other day and took a few worn ring shots while I was at it and am liking the results. Any thoughts? Do you think the ring being worn taken against the body vs. against a backdrop is better?

Here’s what I mean:

    Hi,

    I’ve been following your blog since you were a featured seller on Etsy. I LOVE the lily pond turquoise ring. Actually I love all your rings. Are you going to be listing the turquoise lily pond one on Etsy soon? I want it so bad! Also, I like the outdoor shot of the ring against the body a lot. The light is better.

    Hi there! I AM going to list it tonight (after my little monkey goes to sleep!). It fits 7.5-8.5 approx–I’ll have to double-check but I think that’s about right. I’ve been wearing it on three different fingers ranging in >1 full size and it works and is comfortable because of the unusual shape of the band. I’ll be listing both rings tonight.

    I like the pictures of the jewelry worn against a person as a backdrop better.

    I loved meeting Robin, harieng some of her story, and seeing her jewelry. She is amazing.My friend CC fell in love with one of Robin’s pins and I had not gotten her a bday present yet. So with great subterfuge, I snuck the pin out, went into the bathroom, wrote Robin a check and slid it to her all very sly.After we left your house, she was totally obsessing about that she should have bought it but she’s trying to save money etc, all the usual stuff when we got to her house I sprung it on her.I don’t think I have ever seen CC as happy! It was great.
