An important step in planning One’s wedding is getting the right ring. The majority of rings available are mass produced or look that way: “fine jewelry” is considered “classic” in the jewelry industry. A very simple design: a basic shank with a stone on top. If you look, you will find a few variations on the theme, perhaps a little scroll work is added to the head (that which holds the stone in place); but when looking for something unique, it really is difficult to find a ring that is a one-of-a-kind piece unless you have someone make it for you “custom”. Even then when presented with options, a jeweler is procuring a shank, head and stone from a catalog and assembling it for you.
I was asked to create a custom ring for a Bride, however she wanted something both unique and simple in design. Quite a challenge because of the vast number of designs out there. After much discussion, renderings were created and rejected, until finally the lady decided on a concept: a very simple wave cresting over the finger: minimalist, no fancy head, no prongs. She wanted it to look like the surf had caught a stone in it crest.
The design was approved and I then carved the piece making the setting a combination of channel and bezel. The white gold architecture is minimal allowing the amethyst to be seen easily in full view in parts, buried in the gold in others as a wave would crash around the stone.
The Custom Wave Wedding Ring was created for the Bride without a mold taken; a one-of-a-kind piece for a one-of-a-kind Lady. I heard from her husband who says she is willing to present her finger at a moment’s notice, often showing him, saying “have you seen my ring?”
