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.
