Yellow Gold Tanzanite Tear Drop Ring

Here a recently finished engagement ring with a large vivid blue color pear shaped faceted Tanzanite set sideways in a 18k Royal gold ring.

The 1.3ct Tanzanite, measuring about 8.8 x 5.8 mm, has a beautiful blue color with purple flashes. Combined with rich yellow gold this ring is surely getting some attention. Hard to not notice that color splash on a finger. I love this color combo.

I am very happy with how the ring turned out. Setting gemstones in 18k yellow gold is such a teat, such an easily malleable metal that moves beautifully when hammered around the stone. I wish more people would order yellow gold rings from me.

I did carve the ring mounting in wax, cast it in my studio and hand finished it.

Below a picture of the wax model. It's the 3rd from left side.

 And here the waxes prepped before burnout and  casting:

The waxes were grouped together by the metal they had to be cast in. Since this was the only 18k yellow gold ring it had a flask all by itself.

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!

Beautiful ring and I liked the satin brushed finish

The ring quality is very good and the satin brushed finish is beautiful.

Beautiful and elegant

She will love it
