Goodbye Summer

I've finally finished something that incorporates the rose cut diamonds I bought a thousand years ago. I love the color on this particular stone, in the sunshine it seems to glow. I think that is from the inclusions and how the light enters the stone. Anyhow, it is lemony and lovely and I'm glad I can finally stop feeling guilty about those stones (I can hear them calling "use us! use us!).

It is a size 7 and will be available in my shop soon.

Shmancy Cocktail Ring

For the holidays.

I tend to gravitate towards wearable rings, and since I do a lot of engagement rings and wedding bands I seem to be making endless numbers of solitaires. Don't get me wrong, I love a nice solitaire as much as the next girl (the sparklier the better!), but the artist in me was aching to do something large and flashy. I have several cocktail rings in the works, and this is my latest. The center stone is a cushion cut chrysoprase cabochon, and the little settings circling it will probably be blue topaz? Or cubic zirconium. I haven't decided. The outer ring will textured in some way as well.

Sorry the picture is so bad, it's from my phone:
