Modern, yet very fluid and organic design 14K gold ring with a .52ct certified fancy yellow diamond. I was thinking about and arbor for our garden and looking at gateways with wooden beams and thought how nice and pleasing garden gateways are................ a division separating the world from a place of solace and peace. In my moment of drifting thoughts it came to me that a ring is much the same. Marriage rings are a refuge - a division from the world and marriage should be a peaceful harmonic union.
This ring is a meaningful symbol to me. A gateway to a place of harmony whether it be marriage, knowing oneself, those seeking to find themselves in this world, introspection. For me, the shape is pleasing and fluid. Almost calming :-)
The shank is 14K white gold and the beam is 14K yellow gold. All of the metal is hammer forged and not cast. The .52ct diamond is a fancy yellow stone certified by IGL. It is a conflict free stone and is laser engraved on the girdle with its certification number The ring itself is very solid and weighs 4.1 grams. The width of the band is 5mm.
Why buy forged metal? Cast rings are full of tiny voids and the crystal of the metal structure is inconsistent. If you look at it under a microscope, you will see a mixture of large and small crystal structures. When a billet of metal is forged, this crystal structure is compressed into a uniform size and arrangement, eliminating any weaknesses and the potential for cracking. Cast rings are cheaper, but forged rings are made to last.
All of my gold, silver, and solders are alloyed by me from fine silver bullion and pure copper so there are no toxic "mystery metals" in my jewelry. Every item is hand forged from molten metal by traditional hammer and anvil methods. The only 2 things on my workbench that a roman silversmith would not recognize are a torch and an Ipod................
I offer a limited lifetime (the limit is my lifetime :-) and I have a lot of good years left)service guarantee. If you lose or break a stone I will be happy to replace it for the price (the price I pay) for the stone and shipping.
