“Barb, please add a new green garnet for Alexander” . . . Monday, Aug 24 2020

The loss of very personal, sentimental jewellery sometimes has a wonderful outcome Monday, Aug 10 2020 

Our brief was straightforward, “Barbara, can you please replace this ring using the only information I have?” . . . 1) first source a large suitable stone to recut 2) brief the gem cutter on an unusual high table, cushion cut design 3) design and make a high setting and match the band design 4) make and set 5) document and wait for the client’s response.

Created from the ground up . . . and client extremely thankful.

Jane’s ‘Crystal’ Ring hand make ring to design from image supplied. Rub-over set white spinel square cushion cut 12x12mm. 9ct yellow gold. Polished finish. Size R1/2.

Three shots of the one commissioned bangle © Bh – Jeweller to the Lost – Brisbane Australia.

In fact its her second one and Barbara has been adding elements and gems (rubies & pink tourmalines) as requested, this one is the “red” solid 18ct yellow gold one. The first one, started years ago is the “green” one.

Our Hong Kong dealers call these bead shapes ‘Triads’ so we call them triad style as well Friday, Apr 3 2020 

Barbara has been making this earring style for 15 years or so, this newer version is slightly longer as are the hooks. The three sided matt beads have never changed. Women wear them for business day wear and clients have them in different gold colour ways . . .

Available from this blog, just make a comment and I will take care of the rest!
