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.

wedding ring redux: snake!

Thursday, February 27th, 2020
Custom designed & hand-carved Snake Eternity Band, 14K white gold, diamonds, ruby

This was a commission to re-vamp an older 5-stone wedding ring. It’s no fun to have a great set of stones in a design that you don’t care for, so I removed the stones from the original setting, then designed something a little more exciting for them. 14K white gold, diamonds & a little ruby eye.

I quite love how this turned out.
