Geometric Low-Profile Solitaire
Geometric Low-Profile Solitaire
This solitaire is a riff off of my classic Low-Profile solitaire, but built for a slightly larger sparkle (~1ct to 1.5ct). I wanted this ring to be sturdy and capable, but still have a little something-something special going on. I have always LOVED Art Deco design, and feel like the light faceting I carved in makes for a more svelte and sleek design.
The stone is bezel-set nice and low for comfort and functionality. The subtle geometric framing about the ring makes this piece both old-style and yet very modern.
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, from 1ct-1.5ct (6.5-7.5mm diameter). 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, be it a sparkle-bomb of a diamond, sapphire, emerald, moissanite, etc. Please contact me (email@example.com) to discuss options. The stone shown is approximately 1ct (6.5mm in diameter), but I can adjust the bezel to accommodate stones of different sizes (to an extent).
Stone: You may choose the stone to match your taste and budget. The ring is made to accommodate approximately a 1.5-carat stone (7.5mm diameter), down to 1ct (~6.5mm). If you have a diamond already or a family stone you wish to use, this is absolutely fine.
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: I have this ring priced out for palladium and platinum because I love the icy whiteness of the two metals. However, I can also make this in 14K or 18K, white or yellow gold, or 14K or 18K palladium white gold (if nickel sensitive). Here is a description of all the metal options I work with.
Width of band at bottom: 3.4mm
Optimal stone size: 6.5-7.5mm
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.
