Three Rings with Stones, One Band Design

  • June 8, 2013 9:11 PM

Lately I’ve been in a “ring making” mood. For quite a few years, I’ve built up a small collection of various gemstones in different shapes, colors , sizes and prices, and there they are,  hidden from the eyes of the world. I thought this was a real shame and  have decided it was high time to set them in my jewelry

As these half prescious stones stand out in their beauty, I decided that what would give them a different appearance from regular stone rings would be their band design. For this purpose I chose a carved ring which I have designed beforehand, which I cast to a number of duplicates and soldered them to the Sterling Silver backs of my stone rings.

Here is the band ring photographed on the hands of a model accompanied with two thinner bands as a set of stacking rings:

The first Stone Ring is a large Oval Lapis Lazuli stone set in a Gold bezel on the large band shown above.

The second Silver Gemstone Ring is set with a beautiful Koroit Opal stone:



The third stone ring is a Silver Carnelian Gemstone ring

I believe that adding a simple silver band to these stones would make them look good too, but I somehow felt they would be even more special if I attached them to a different kind of band. Hope you will agree with me.

The three Stone rings are OOAK (One of a Kind) rings.

Thank you so much for watching





My Silver Bracelet with Hollowform Leaves, Gold and Stones

Ever since I was a child I used to dream up things. I dreamed I would have lots of kids , that I would marry the most handsome and good hearted man, that I would be a rich woman, etc..

Well – none of these dreams have come true – I have only one child (and she is the world to me), I have not found that heart of gold I’ve been searching for (and I’m getting older – ha!) and as for becoming rich  – well….

But there are dreams which I insist must come true. And they do!

Sometimes I dream of a jewelry item  I would design and produce, and then I go ahead and create it!

This bracelet is one of my dreams come true:

When I know I can imagine  a jewelry design and turn it into something real , I have a feeling of accomplishment. This makes me a happy person!
