Art takes many mediums. Sometimes before I start a new piece I start by exploring colors and textures and the overall "feeling" to be found in landscapes and earth's unexplored terrains. I'll take a Pinterest free-fall into a theme and see where it takes me. I'll start playing with my paints, pulling in colors in acrylic, oils, and ink and finding a theme. I then sit with my stones laid out before me and start to create a color palette in my precious stones. 

Sapphires are my current muse - in particular those in subterranean hues of teal, turquoise, and aquatic blues... 

I wanted this piece to have a coolness to it, but with that peaceful and uplifting feeling of being just beneath the surface of the ocean, looking up through the water, so calm and tranquil in that muted surrounding, but with the sun pouring through and all the promise of life above trickling through. Perhaps this makes little sense, but this is where I start and clutching at this feeling this is where I begin. 

This ring is a smooth, rounded, and tactile band with mixed sizes of cool blue, teal, and bi-colored Sapphires submerged freely, with little diamonds - both perfect brilliant-cut, rose-cut and rough-cut shards - clustered together to create areas of texture and sparkle, cast in 14kt White Gold.

This is a calming, cool, and very special ring. Every single piece is a one of a kind, and there is an element of freedom is given to the work. I let heat guide the stones and they sit as and where they will, allowing for an organic and utterly unique piece, each time.

This ring is in 14kt White Gold and is a size 5. Wider bands fit more snuggly that skinny bands, so suitable for size 4.75 to true 5 wearers. When it's gone, it's gone.

18k Royal Yellow -

Our 18k Royal Yellow is the perfect blend of yellow Gold’s with a warmer hue - less green than some - which is extremely beautiful - rich and refined - on all skin tones.

18k Rose Gold - 

Our 18k Rose Gold is the result of an infusion of copper and a touch of silver into our Gold, giving it that warm, rich, earthy quality that makes Rose Gold such a beautiful metal. The silver paling it from the otherwise ‘red gold’, the copper adding a blush. The result is what we call our “dusty rose”. Indeed this just might be our all-time favourite metal blend.

Our Signature 10k Gold -

Our signature 10k Yellow Gold is an unsung hero. An underestimated Gold, this is a beautiful, very strong, pale and creamy gold that shines  brilliantly and pops against all skin tones - being naturally less yellow and brassy than the typical 18-24kt Golds.

As the flashy "Kardashian culture" evolved, the higher karat golds became more coveted, but time and time again it's my 10 karat pieces that people notice and fall in love with. It's a beautiful fine metal, strong, classy and unpretentious. We're bringing it back!

Platinum -

Platinum is a white metal, but unlike gold it is much stronger, and therefore used in jewelry in almost a pure form (approximately 95% pure).
Platinum is extremely long wearing and is less grey than the mislabeled white gold, so it does not need to be Rhodium plated like white gold does.
Platinum is very dense (heavy), so a platinum ring will feel heavier than an 18kt gold ring.

White Gold -

We do do white gold on occasion, but are less fickle about the karat. White gold is actually a grey metal, and is almost always Rhodium plated to appear more white. For this reason, we tend to use 14kt White Gold as it is strong and durable.

Ring size is very specific to each individual, so I highly recommend you print out our Ring Sizer for guidance - it is VITAL that you print it out at 100% scale on your printer. Some printers automatically adjust the scale settings, so please be diligent when checking.

The thicker the band, the more snuggly it will fit, so I recommend you size up half a size for anything north of a 5mm wide band.
