Fresh Off The Jewelers Bench !

Just finished a lovely new 18kt yellow gold wedding band for a client.  The ring features a beautiful blue oval sapphire and round brilliant white diamonds, channel set within an open top.

The 18kt yellow gold ring is brightly polished to a mirror like finish.    The ring has a squarish shape but with slightly rounded corners for a softer look and more comfortable fit.

I love how the sapphire and diamonds appear to be suspended in mid-air within this nice heavy gauge channel setting.  The open ends allow you to see the dramatic line created by the gemstones seemingly suspended.

What shall I call this dramatic ring design?   Hmmmmm.... I wil sleep on it tonight and perhaps come back tomorrow with the perfect name !

Of course if you have a suggestion,  I am all ears !

That is probably silly idea, but I would call it Ring of Destiny. First of all it's a wedding ring it's got to do with destiny. Secondly, looking closer at how the diamonds and sapphire are mounted - it looks like they are attached to the ring by some invisible power...definitely a destiny. Or maybe call the ring simply 'Destiny'? Oh, I love your works they are brilliant.
