More Marquise Rings

December 07, 2013 2 min read

Since yesterdays pink sapphire marquise ring turned out to be such a hit I felt inclined today to give a smaller version a try. Saturday mornings are so nicely quite just sipping away on my coffee. Instead of just wasting my time with social media, opening the CAD program seemed more productive and still fun. Playing a bit in the CAD software to model a version for a 7 x 3.5mm stone was just the right thing to do.

Using the software Rhino3D with T-splines plugin with a bit of trial and error, lot's of push and pull digital clay modelling, I had this baby done.

This is a screenshot in the CAD program of the model.

 

Not perfect yet but it can be milled in wax on my CNC machine. I always do some more modifications in the milled wax anyways. So the computer model does not need to be that exact. It will get modified once I see how this works with the stone. But it's a start and the model can be adjusted for different stone sizes. I do have a couple 7x3.5mm sapphires on hand which I use in my other marquise full bezel design with the stone set side ways.

The renderings show the stone just laying in the setting since I modeled this for production and not as a finished view. I probably don't do any casting this year anymore. This will have to wait to be finished in metal until the new year. Once cast and polished the metal of the partial bezel would be hammered over the sapphire girdle securing it in the setting.

 

It could also look good in yellow gold I guess.

Or with a moissanite or diamond. The setting design is somewhat similar to my rings from my Fold collection,which mostly use round an cushion cut gemstones. This would be the same approach with a marquise shaped stones and the cut out of the partial bezel connecting down to the ring shank.

 

 

So may options. I am sure some of these will show up next year in my store.

June's Birthstone Alexandrite
June's Birthstone Alexandrite

June 02, 2021 1 min read

One of June's birthstones is the magical Alexandrite. 💚💜 The other birthstone options for June are pearls and moonstones. All these are beautiful and enchanting. But pearls are very soft, moonstones are only a tad stronger. Both are not the great option for engagement rings and should be left for only occasionally worn rings or even better for necklaces and earrings. Alexandrites however are quite durable and perfectly suited to be worn daily in engagement or wedding rings. 💍

elegant!

My trillion Moissanite stud earrings exude an understated elegance. The bezel setting frames the dazzling stone, which is the perfect size for everyday wear.

above and beyond

I cannot say enough about how much I appreciate Konstanze's craftsmanship and customer service. My husband bought my engagement ring nearly three years ago from Nodeform and had to ask for some special requests during the buying process. Konstanze was extremely helpful and patient. The hoops my husband had to jump through to get this ring is one of the reasons why it is incredibly precious to me. So when the green moissanite chipped, I was heartbroken. I found a similar one on Konstanze's website recently, and she guided me through which one to buy that would fit the existing setting and answered all of my questions almost immediately. It was her awesome attention to detail and customer service that brought us back to her. I really cannot thank Konstanze enough and can't wait to have my gem replaced and ring back on my finger again. Thank you! (Attached picture is of the original engagement ring and green moissanite. :-) )

Amazing customer service and beautiful ring

Konstanze did an amazing job on this ring. She has amazing attention to detail and customer service to create a stunning custom ring. It looks even better in person than the photos. The subtle grey moissanite changes colour in different lighting from a very subtle to more obvious grey hue. Thank you for a ring I will cherish forever.

Charming and elegant

I love the elegant simplicity of this necklace and have been wearing it most days since it arrived! It is perfect and I love it.

Beautiful, quality work!

Great communication throughout the ordering process and while waiting for the custom order to be completed. The ring turned out beautiful and is very well made. My significant other loves it and has been receiving a lot of great compliments. Very happy with the purchase! (Purchased along with the Moissanite Round Full Bezel Set Star Dust Engagement Ring.)
