Woven Texture Wedding Ring

February 28, 2014 2 min read

Eventually it's was just a matter of time that more of my explorations from my last years Brooch a Day challenge would creep into my ring design. I am in love with the texture of this new wedding ring set.

The brooch designs I played with last year did take inspirations from woven patterns found in bird nest structures. The random weaving pattern is created by a computer script and can be applied to a varity of surface shapes to create parametric designs with the option to change the pattern density and layout.

At the time I had actually tried it on some rings too but did not get around to working out some issues and finally making ring samples until this year. I finally did create it with 2  different ring width (~6mm and 3.5mm wide). The pattern clearly reads more distinct in the wider version. I will be offering this in ring width of 2mm to 8mm. The wider the band, the more the texture will show as interwoven lines. On narrow rings there is not much surface to place the loops around the circular axis of the ring and the pattern will mostly show the small lines in the other direction.

The rings can be ordered in various metal options, either as a matching set of 2 rings or separately as a narrow ring or up to 8mm wide wedding band.

I will eventually also offer it as an engagement ring with a solitaire gemstone setting on the narrow band.

It would be pretty cool to create a mixed metal version too like the computer rendering below showing a white metal woven grid over a maybe rose gold band. However I haven't figured out how to do that without actually having a CNC mill capable of cutting this out of laminated precious metal. Not sure yet how to create this with the tools I have. Something to ponder on for a while.

 

There are certainly some ideas that came out of the brooch a day challengethat I want to explore more. But the real challenge I often encounter is to create patterns that will still read on small surface of an wedding or engagement ring. I may have to create some larger statement rings or bracelets. Many of those ideas may also require being 3D printed rather than CNC milled. So this will have to wait until I get the funds together to buy the 3D printer I have in mind.

June's Birthstone Alexandrite

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.)
