Apricot Sunset Ring - Made to Order
I love this ring design so much. The simplicity of the setting, combined with the beautiful curvature and heavy weight of the wide, domed band just give me all the feels. I also love the subtle asymmetry provided by the 3 silver embellishments placed at the lower right corner. Of course a simple setting like this calls for exquisite stones, so I've hand-picked 4 of the best from my stash to offer to you in the finger size of your choosing.
About the Stones:
Be sure to check out all the pictures to see close-ups and labelled images of each stone.
There is one Owyhee mountain jasper, which is the stone I used in the original prototype of this ring design. A deposit of it was recently found deep in the Owyhees in Oregon. It contains beautiful shades of warm buttery yellow, pink, and burgundy with dendritic inclusions that look like Joshua trees. A super unique and rare stone! Please note this particular stone is a little bit bigger than the one used in the prototype.
I've also selected a dendritic agate that has a perfect shape and size for this design, in beautiful warm buttery sunny golden tones with auburn dendritic inclusions. So earthy and exquisite!
The remaining two stones are some of the most vibrant turquoise I have in my collection, in shapes and sizes that are perfect for this design.
The first is a spectacularly vibrant aqua/green turquoise from the Kingman mine in Arizona, with subtle brown webbing. The second is a coveted Royston turquoise from the Royston mine in Nevada, in a gradient of shades from sky blue to aqua to green. The stone has tan coloured dendritic webbing in the upper right corner. I love these 2 turquoise stones and admit I've been holding onto them for a long time wanting to find the perfect design that would highlight their beauty and not overshadow it.
Each stone will be set on a super wide band (measures approx. 14mm from top to bottom) that is domed for comfort. This is a VERY substantial ring that is sure to outlast all of us and our grandkids!
How it Works:
These rings will be made to order in your chosen finger size, in the same design as the prototype ring. Slight variations in final appearance should be expected - for example if the 3 silver embellishments on the bottom right hand side of the setting feel like they would look better spaced apart or closer together, then I may make slight adjustments accordingly. Select your stone from the drop down menu, then leave a note at checkout with your preferred size or send me an email via the contact page. Please allow up to 3 weeks for me to hand craft this ring just for you, before it is shipped.
Sizing: I size my rings to fit the finger, rather than how they measure on a mandrel. Please let me know the exact size of the finger you'd like to wear your ring on and I will measure accordingly to compensate for the wide band. I'm not able to offer resizing on this ring design.
Please note pricing will vary slightly for each ring, according to the carat weight and value of the stone.
