Second last commission for 2019, collected from the studio yesterday Thursday, Dec 19 2019 

No photography can show off this stone like holding it to view under natural light. Kathy’s 5.78ct cushion cut Tanzanite and Barbara’s own version of her open sided integrated ‘Roman Claw’ setting with tapered band.

Megan saw the Zavelsky ring stack online and . . . well, got in touch. Thursday, Dec 5 2019 

Barbara worked with an excited lady who had a collection of fossiked gems from her childhood family holidays. Unusual sapphires all ‘field cut’ plus her Mother’s and Grandmother’s diamond rings to incorporate. We sold all the gold which helped the budget and Megan chose a combination of rose and white gold to suit the pastel-toned gems.
