Halo's and Flying Saucer Rings

April 25, 2012 1 min read

I had this idea in my head for a while to do some halo design inspired rings. I finally carved a couple wax models for these new design prototypes.

The halo tops were turned on a Foredom lath and then attached to stubby prongs on a hand carved rounded ring band. This gives it a "flying saucer just landed on a ring" look  :)

The first ring would be for faceted 5mm stones like diamonds, moissanites, sapphires etc. The center stone would be set flush into the halo. I guess small tiny gem stones could be flush set all around to give it even more sparkle. But usually I go more for the understated look, I prefer the cleaner version without added small sparkles on the wide rim.

The second design is for a one-of-a-kind giant tourmalinated quartz with an unusual buff cut.  This will be a freaking gigantic cocktail ring :) I added later 4 flat prongs to the inside of the halo to hold the stone.

 The rings are already cast but I still have to find time to do all the finishing work. Might take a while since April seems to be a very busy month for me.

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.
