Christa received these round diamonds from a beloved aunt, intact in their delicate 18k prongs. Her aunt had worn them as earring studs for years, and recently gave them to Christa. Christa is an ecologist and studies how butterflies fit into our world. We designed these earrings inspired by the movement of butterfly wings, capturing the light in her old mine cut diamonds.
Judi did not know what to do with pear shaped diamonds from her mother’s old wedding ring. During a recent trip to Tanzania she had purchased this amazing Tanzanite knowing that if it were set in a ring, she could enjoy peering into its flawless depths. Her diamonds found a perfect home flanking the tanzanite in this stunning platinum alignment of linear geometry enhanced by feminine pear shapes.
These perfect diamond trillions were given to Marisa by her grandmother who had once worn them in a favorite platinum ring. I suggested retaining the three-prong setting, melting the ring for credit, and adding a round diamond to create minimalist earring jackets that would dress up diamond huggie hoops she already owned. Sparkling light, handed down from her grandmother, now frames Marisa’s face on special occasions.
I hope to see some of you this summer!
