Reworks of older wedding rings can be a lot of fun. I started with a pile of diamonds: Giant light grey centerstone, plus a smattering of light pink, yellow, and champagne colored side diamonds. The new ring has a steampunk Jules Verne vibe to it with a port window in 18K yellow gold holding down the center stone.
Tentacles curl around the band of the ring, cast into a contrasting 14K white gold. Carving contrasting elements–sinuous tentacles and mechanical port windows, etc.–I love how this turned out.
