New Heirloom: A Custom Antique-Inspired Ring

What was old is new again in this custom, antique-inspired ring. A client from Nantucket, MA, approached me with a ring she never wore & a request to use the diamonds in a new, wearable piece.


I meticulously measured the loose diamonds & sketched a possible arrangement for the new ring.     





 


Next, I created a CAD model of the intricate design & cast in 18 karat white gold.  


Her response upon seeing the new heirloom? "Julia, The ring arrived.....I held my breath and opened the box......it is so beautiful. Thank you so much!!" Success.
