This heavy 18k yellow gold ring makes a statement with simple, elegant lines. letting the prescious materials shine with their beauty. I worked this traditinal type band with slight cushioned edges which keeps large-stone rings from tilting on the finger. I added 4 elegant slits along the edge facets of the bezel in order to illuminate the stone through the extra light coming in.
The ring in the photographs has a 12x9mm green tourmaline stone in it. I meet a few, selected stone dealers about once or twice a year, when I go to the trade shows in Munich, Germany and Vicenza Italy. At that point I hand select stones that stand out and inspire me.
The ring is priced without the stone. You can either provide the stone yourself or you can purchase the stone through me.
I hand carve each piece one-of-a-kind, so, a stone with different dimensions can easily be accommodated.
