Custom designed & hand-carved citrine solitaire with clematic flower motif, 14K yellow gold

This big golden solitaire was designed for a friend of mine who is an avid gardener and next-level floral designer. The warm oval citrine was a family stone, and it’s held by an open pavilion design carved with a clematis vine motif. 14K yellow gold.

Clematis Integrifolia "Fascination." Pic borrowed from www.shootgardening.co.uk

The specific variety of clematis she chose is called Integrifolia “fascination.” I had never seen this one before and I love the very precise shape and drop of these bell-shaped blooms. Definitely the coolest clematis I’ve ever seen.
