Yellow Gold Tanzanite Tear Drop Ring

February 11, 2014 1 min read

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.

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.

Stunning

I love my engagement ring. It is stunning and truly a piece of art.

My fiancee loves it

Looks better in person. Quality is amazing.

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.
