Blooming Rose Solitaire
Blooming Rose Solitaire
One might think I would tire of carving roses, but somehow I don't think this is ever going to happen. My take on this classic theme features a perfect just-opening rose, and in its center a gorgeous 3/4 carat diamond (~6mm diameter). The ring is simple and romantic and perfect.
Despite the awesome size of the stone and carved rose, the height of the ring off the finger is fairly minimal.
Please note this ring is priced as the mounting only WITHOUT a stone. I price it this way so you may select your perfect stone. I am happy to make this ring using a stone you already have (a family diamond, for instance), or I can help you find a stone of your choosing. Please fine more details below in the Customization Options.
What is included in the price
This listing is for the solitaire mounting ONLY. You get to select the stone that best fits your taste and budget: a diamond, sapphire, emerald, moissanite, etc. Please contact me (email@example.com) to discuss options. The stone shown is approximately 3/4ct (6mm in diameter).
Stone: You may choose the stone to match your taste and budget. The ring is made to accommodate approximately a 3/4-carat stone (~6mm in diameter). If you have a diamond already or a family stone you wish to use, this is absolutely fine; please contact me to double-check sizing and specifics, etc.
All diamonds I purchase are Kimberly Process guaranteed (conflict-free certified) and come with a grading report from GIA. In addition to white diamonds, I can get gorgeous natural champagne or cognac-colored diamonds. I can also get lab-created diamonds (man made in a laboratory rather than dug out of the ground; these are identical in chemical composition to natural diamonds), which are ideal for those squeamish about destructive mining practices. And, last but not least, I have an excellent source for antique stones: Old European and Old Mine cuts, Transitional cuts, etc. These stones are gorgeous and unique (and recycled!), and have a lot of character and life in them.
Please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss options. Stones I provide will be invoiced separately or as a custom listing for you here.
Finger size: Please let me know your size via email (email@example.com). I make these by hand, so between sizes, 1/4 sizes are all fine. Let me know any pertinent fit details in your email.
Metal preference: 14K or 18K, white, yellow, or rose gold (rose gold available in 14K only), 14K or 18K palladium white gold (if nickel sensitive), platinum 950, or palladium 950. Here is a description of all the metal options I work with. Don’t worry if you don’t see your metal priced out here in my listing; send me an email and I’ll get you a quote.

This ring is hand carved in wax by me in my Portland studio using pointy tools, and then cast using the lost-wax method. I do all finishing work, stone setting, and pearl mounting. Each ring is a highly detailed work of art with great attention to detail at every angle; this ring in particular has a delicious weighty feel.
