Because each of these rings is hand-fabricated by me from raw materials, any design is possible. For example, you may choose from the following options:
gold colour: white, yellow, or rose
gold karat: this ring can be made in solid 14k or 18k gold
diamond: choose your yellow diamond. If you prefer a different shape/colour/size of diamond, let me know
band texture: hammered, high shine, brushed/matte, faceted
accent stones: can also be gypsy/flush set down into the band
accent stones: can be switched to any stone of your choosing, including diamonds
bezel texture: can be smooth, faceted, or any other texture you prefer
This ring is built around one of my bright, warm yellow rough diamonds. These diamonds are in their natural, uncut form, and have not been treated in any way. They range in size from 5.5mm to 7.5mm long. You may choose your diamond from the dropdown menu during ordering. The final photo shows the diamonds in detail. If you wish to have any further pictures sent to you of any of the diamonds, please let me know.
I have set the diamond in a very thick hand-built bezel of yellow gold. I have created a microhammered texture on the bezel lip, and a glittery, brushed surface on the bezel walls.
The ring band has been given a hand-faceted, geometric finish. Over this texture, I created a brushed, glittery texture. The band is 2.5mm wide by 1.5mm thick.
Matching wedding rings are available- they are $350 USD in 14k gold, and $500 USD in 18k gold.
The sapphires are absolutely gorgeous- they are a bright, striking cornflower blue. These stones are Yogo sapphires- they are found only in the Yogo Gulch, in Montana. They are untreated (no heat), and are beautifully cut. The sapphires are 1.7mm across, and are the perfect compliment to the yellow diamond. I bought my dealer's entire supply, so I have many more if you would like to use them in a different design.

Please note: These diamonds were mined from a pink matrix (material the diamonds are found growing in). Some of the stones retain a bit of this pinkish material in their deepest crevices. Over time, and through repeated cleanings, this material will wash out of the diamond. I have scrubbed the stones several times, but some of the more deeply-set material remains. So, if you pick a stone with some of this matrix intact, please expect it to change slightly in appearance over time.
