Fossil Coral & Diamond Curio Ring
This one is a real statement & conversation starter.
The focal is a gorgeous, deeply contrasting fossil coral specimen from Indonesia, complemented by a vintage brilliant cut round diamond in rustic 22k gold, separated by a bronze accent.
Hand wrought in 2023 from start to finish in my typical style, blending contemporary elegance & fine materials with a little rustic character left in, even intentionally accentuated with manual oxidation and black gilder’s wax.
The coral is set in bright white fine silver, and the ring shank is sterling silver for durability. Marked for quality for all 3 metals.
This ring has a little secret, like some of my pieces do. This wonderful little oddball diamond glows brightly when exposed to a blacklight, an amazing example of mineral fluorescence.
This one is some of my best work, with some of my best stones.
Size ~ 6.5, patiently awaiting it’s person.
