PLEASE NOTE: The exact rings pictured in this listing have been sold. The photos are used to give you an idea of how your custom-made ring will appear once built.

To choose a different coloured pearl, such as lavender pink, peach pink, violet gray, and white, see the pearls in this listing: http://www.etsy.com/listing/65055195/colored-pearls-in-textured-sterling and let me know which pearl you would like during check-out with this ring.

Your ring will be built for you, when you order it. Each of these rings is similar in appearance, but as is the nature of the pearls and diamonds, each piece will be different. Unless you have a colour preference, I will choose the nicest of the bunch for your ring.


Photos are always sent for your approval before the completed piece will ship out. Please see my shop announcement for my current lead time (look under the 'Specimental' shop banner): http://www.etsy.com/shop/elseetee2


Each of these rings are each unique creations. The focal point of the ring is a cluster of orbs. I have included a luscious, steel-coloured pearl. Surrounding the pearl is a gorgeous, glossy raw diamond crystal, and a number of sterling silver bubbles- some have a reticulated surface, and others are smooth.

The sterling silver ring band is a wide 1/2". In keeping with the bubble motif of this ring, I have textured it with a deeply debossed bubble pattern. This pattern is created using a rolling mill and a textured metal plate. After soldering together the silver components, I polished the ring with a steel brush. The final step before setting the pearl and diamond was to put the ring into my rock tumbler for a few hours- this hardens the metal, and makes for a more durable finish.

This diamond is conflict-free, and is its natural, uncut, crystal form.

The diamond is around 3/16" across, and pearl measures about 1/4" across. All edges of the ring band have been sanded for comfort, and the inside of the band was given a matte lustre finish.

As with all of my specimen jewelry, this ring should be worn with consideration and care to ensure a long life.

***Shipping includes tracking number***
PLEASE NOTE: I am able to send this at a less expensive shipping rate (Canada $9.50, USA $6.50, International $9.50), but this does not include tracking nor delivery confirmation. The package will only be insured for a maximum of $100. I prefer to not use this method for this piece, as the insurance is inadequate and I cannot cover the rest of the cost of the piece should it be lost in the mail. However, if you prefer to have your piece shipped using this lower-insured method, I can certainly do this for you.

Frequently asked questions about Specimental

I am always open to hearing your design ideas. Please contact me through the shop, or at treloar@telus.net to discuss design possibilities.
If you are unsure of your ring size, the best way to be sized accurately is by visiting two commercial jewelers. Please ensure they size you using their thin sizing tools- not the wide band sizing tools, nor by having you try on rings from their display.

If any questions arise around being properly sized, I am always happy to help- contact me through the shop, or at treloar@telus.net
All of my pieces come ready to present as gifts, in attractive foil stamped jewelry boxes, enclosed in a lovely Chinese faux silk gift bag.

If the person for whom you are purchasing the piece shares your address, please be aware of the following: International export law dictates that the detailed contents of packages, and their value, be clearly marked on the outside of the package. This means that if they see the package before you do, they can easily tell what they are being gifted with.

I am happy to ship to your workplace, a friend, or a relative, when secrecy is necessary. The very best option is to have your package held for you at your closest Fed Ex store- if you are unsure of its location, I'm happy to help.
At this time, I do not sell wholesale, nor do I place my pieces on commission.
My gold is all recycled- the metal plant I purchase it from has been in business for over 100 years. They smelt their metals to the highest environmental standards, to cause the least impact on the environment. They do not deal with newly mined metals, as these metals cause much greater destruction to the environment.

There is no visible difference between recycled metals and newly-mined metals. There is also no difference as far as the karat of the metals go- 18k recycled gold is exactly the same in constitution as 18k newly mined gold. The vast majority of my clients prefer their metals recycled, as environmental impact is of concern when choosing the perfect piece of jewelry.
No, I cannot. I am not set up to smelt gold in the studio, so am not able to melt down your old gold pieces for you.
I can use your heirloom stones in a new design. The stones must be pulled from their settings and checked for stability by a professional jeweler prior to shipping them to me.
My current production times are listed in my shop announcement. If you need something more quickly, please get in touch via the shop, or at treloar@telus.net

Depending upon my work and family schedule, I am happy to accommodate your rush orders. There is no additional charge for a rush order. However, please do get in touch prior to ordering to discuss your deadline with me.
Yes! All of my pieces are completely hand fabricated in the studio by me, from raw materials. I am able to create any of my designs with any stone, in any composition. In short, you can have your ring absolutely any way you like it. Contact me through the shop, or via treloar@telus.net to get the discussion around your perfect piece of jewelry started.
