Revised Secrete Santa

January 05, 2014 2 min read

The last blog post showed the carved wax ring for a unique shaped sapphire to be set. Well, as it turned out I was rushing to get it finished and chipped the stone. Not a surprise it happened since the stone was highly included and had very thin and sharp corners.

So I went with plan B which in the end may have turned out nicer anyways.

 

 

I made a stacking ring set from my Wave Collection with a round garnet center stone. I was lucky  that I had the sterling silver castings in stock in the right ring size and just needed to set the stone and finish them. Since my Secrete Santa recipient preferred bold designs I added one of my 3D printed brooches and made it a somewhat matching set by putting a garnet in the center of the brooch. The bezel set garnet serves as the pin. The presents made it just in time before Christmas eve to my happy recipient Winona.

And look what I got as my Secrete Santa present from Nikki aka NRjewellerydesign:

The bracelets are so beautiful, love the Turquoise stones especially. Such beautiful colors. They make a lovely sound when worn. I have been loving Nikki's designs fr a while and I am so happy to own one of her pieces now. I love Secrete Santa. Can't wait until next year.
I just got back from my 2 week vacation in Europe. I spend some time with my family in Berlin. Celebrated Christams in cold gray weather (although everyone told me it was quite mild weather- well having been used to LA weather for years now it felt cold)  Lot's of hefty German food was on the table. It felt like all we did was eating, not that this is bad. We celebrated New Years with fireworks and improvisation theater on the Kurfuerstendam in the center of Berlin. I also traveled with my sister and my niece to Amsterdam for 3 days. It was so nice to stroll along the canals, see all the historical buildings, amazing art in the museums. I had a great time but I am also glad to be home again and start into the new year with some plans and goals I want to archive. More about those goals in the next post.

Beautiful and looks exactly as expected

perfect fit, perfect ring, Fiancé loved it and said yes :)

Stunning!

I bought the Velda ring in rose gold with alexandrite stones and couldn’t be happier! Konstanze helped me determine how it might look as a shadow band with my engagement ring (pictured). It looks better than I even imagined and I am so thrilled! Konstanze was great at keeping in touch, answering questions, and it didn’t hurt that it came so nicely gift wrapped. My husband and I did all our wedding jewelry in-person at our local store (pre-pandemic) and I didn’t know what to expect with an online experience, but it was very personal and turned out perfectly. Thank you!

Beautiful Craftsmanship

I cannot express how excited I am about my beautiful ring. It is exactly as anticipated. I ordered a small (4.25) thin (3mm) hammered edge band, with a comfort edge.

The customer service was excellent! Shipping was fast. I love buying from small businesses, but the level of detail and amazing customer contact was phenomenal!

Wonderful creative design

I LOVE my ring!!! It is so beautiful- bright silver with the awesome pattern would like to get two more narrow ones to wear with it!!

Perfect tiny stud earrings

Exactly what I wanted: grey (my favorite color) diamonds set in platinum (hypoallergenic), lightweight for every day. Thank you!
