A Ring made with my Sapphires
|Material:||9 Karat Rose Gold|
Sometimes the chance to work with sapphires that someone has actually fossicked (unearthed) themselves presents itself – this ring was one of those special occasions.
Daniel had spent hours in the Australian outback sifting and searching through the rock for these bright little sapphire stones. He asked a professional stone cutter to cut them to get the best and brightest sparkle. They are all a little different in colour but the range is stunning – from greens, to yellows and even little oranges ones. ⠀
He asked me to make a special ring for his wife. With two young kids they hadn’t had much time to themselves lately…he told me with a sigh. But, he was planning a special weekend away and he wanted to give her this special ring – how gorgeous is that!? We discussed ideas and he suggest a ring that has layers, each snuggled into one another, to represent their shared experiences. I thought that was a stunning idea.
I made this ring using 9 carat rose gold. When the ring was finished I stamped it with my makers mark and hallmarked the gold carat. Naturally this piece came complete with my official authenticity certificate stating the gold carat.
“My partner and I engaged Laura with the task of commissioning a unique piece of jewellery. Laura was loosely briefed by my partner and totally took the concept and ran with it. Communication was forthcoming with frequent updates along the way, including illustrations and photos of concepts. The final product blew all involved away! Couldn’t recommend Coral Covey any more thoroughly!”
“I love my Ace’s Wiggle Ring! It’s unique, it’s beautiful and the craftsmanship is superb. Part of the experience was the fantastic service I received; the considerate help when choosing my ring, the regular updates while my ring was being made, and the beautiful presentation when it arrived. I couldn’t be happier.”
“In a world awash with jewellery, I have so rarely found a jeweller who places so much importance on minimising the environmental impact of their work as Laura does with Coral Covey. Brilliant!”
