This 18 carat gold engagement ring is cast from a willow branch and features the natural wood texture and buds on a young twig, with a central lemon yellow pear shape diamond.
I created this unique ring by making a mold for the twig and then using this branch to model and sculpt a ring with a crossover style which holds the diamond in between the two ends of the branch.
Many of my designs are the result of customisations that my customers request to an original design, so often each new ring is a journey along the evolution of the design. If you like the look of this ring, but would rather it was different in some way, please get in touch and we can explore what is possible. This might be a different shape or type of stone, or it might be a different orientation or position for the stone. Or you might prefer a ring without the buds. The possibilities are endless. Do drop me a line or call and I would be more than happy to have a chat about your dream ring!
If you are unsure about the ring size, I have a useful sheet I can send you in the first instance. Once we agree the design, I will then ask you to either get your finger measured in a jewellery shop, or you can send me one of your rings that fits you perfectly. Alternatively, I can send you 2-3 basic rings which you can try on to determine what size might fit you best.
The diamond in this photo is GIA certified, Natural Fancy Light Yellow colour, dimensions 7.14x3.78x2.42mm, pear brilliant. If you would like to order this design, I will source a similar (or different if you prefer) diamond which you can choose from a range of options. This listing is for illustration purposes and I would create a new, bespoke ring for you if you would like to order something similar, and the price may vary depending on your budget and stone availability.
I personally hand make every piece in my workshop in London, using 100% recycled gold for the cast elements. I then use a network of specialist craftspeople, such as a stone setter, to set the stone into the ring. It is then hallmarked, before getting a final polish prior to delivery.
Each item is wrapped in a luxury box with ribbon, with a complimentary gift card for which you can request a handwritten message.
