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.

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.)
