Dream Catcher Diamond Slice

$640.00

"All that we see or seem, is but a dream within a dream." - Edgar Allan Poe

If you have not yet met a diamond slice, then you are in for something extraordinary. 

This one mesmerized me with its black carbon heart and spider web fracture-lines. It wasn't until it was cast that I saw in it the beautiful dream catcher that inspired the name, and perhaps a future series of delicate and unique dream catcher diamond slice pendants.

Diamond slices were the first diamonds to turn me from a diamond industry hater to a true diamond lover... they duck out of the whole "Four C's" conversation, and defy any snobbery of color and clarity, in fact, they relish in being the very opposite of the quintessential "flawless" stone.  

Diamonds are an extraordinary stone. They are the strongest of the bunch and have an unfathomable history of heat, pressure, a billion years, and volcanic eruption. These slices show a glimpse of their extreme story...

Slices start as large, highly included, rough diamonds, that are sliced using a laser into slices 1-3mm thick, the surfaces polished and sometimes gently faceted, with the edges left rough as the natural stone was found. They are dainty shards of mottled and intriguing, glass-like slices, containing their own little galaxies of a story, each one completely unique to the next. 

I handpick each slice individually, seeking out slices of light and reflection that have something striking about them. I will sift through hundreds of stones to find my few and won't work with anything I am not in love with. I then immerse them in wax and create either facets or texture around them, complimenting the natural shape of the stone, and then set it to cast - another process of heat and pressure where anything can happen. The result is these glittering shards of history, framed in delicate gold frames.

This piece is framed in 18kt Rose Gold, with my signature dainty 14kt diamond cut chain that is both dainty and strong (14kt makes for a stronger chain - I sleep in mine) and sparkles with all its faceted and reflective edges. I spent two years sourcing the right chains and am in love with these. They have three jump rings for the clasp, allowing the chain to be worn at three different lengths, 14, 15, and 16 inches. 

No two stones are ever the same. If you would like to see several stones and available pieces please email me at Jayne@ternyc.com or DM me @TERNYC and I would be delighted to show you!

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.
