Please note: The ring in the photos is sold. Your ring will be custom made to order, with with a Herkimer diamond from the same parcel as the one you see here.
The focal stone is a perfect little Herkimer diamond with its terminations, or points, completely intact.

Herkimer diamonds are not, in fact, real diamonds. They are quartz crystals that were first discovered in the 1700's, in Herkimer County, New York.

I have created a unique ring band for this design. The band is 1/2" sterling silver. I embossed it with a softly undulating wave pattern, using a rolling mill and a textured metal plate. I then filed and sanded the edges of the ring until they, too, flowed softly and organically.

The crystal is held in place with a fine silver girdle. I have also discreetly epoxied the crystal to the ring, on the underside, using jeweler's epoxy. This double-setting ensures that the Herkimer diamond will stay firmly in place.

The ring was given a matte lustre finish with a steel brush. The inside of the ring is polished to a high shine. The ring was hardened in my rock tumbler prior to setting the crystal specimen.

As your ring will be custom-built for you, please expect some variations to the crystal and the form of the ring. Your ring will be every bit as lovely as the one pictured here. Photos will be sent to you for approval prior to shipping the piece.

Please see my shop announcement for my current production time, as this is a custom, made-to-order piece.

Other Stone Possibilities...

I have a small parcel of gorgeous, orange-red Herkimer-diamond like crystals which were imported from Italy. I also have a very limited selection of tiny, double-terminated (points on each end) smokey quartz crystals which are a deep gray-black. Get in touch for photos and more information.
