Please note: The two stacking rings you see here are sold. This is a very unique piece, and anything is possible as far as combining colours and textures. Please see my shop announcement for my current lead time on custom rings.
I built these rings using thick 18 gauge sterling silver hand-forged bands. The bands were both given a pinbrushed texture.
The thinner band is about 1/8" wide. Upon this band is set a gorgeous brilliant cut amethyst, with great sparkle and clarity. A few sterling silver balls/granulation surround this diamond, which is bezel set in fine silver.
The thinner band is built to be worn together with a wider, 1/4" matching sterling band. This band has multiple silver granulation. It also has a gorgeous, naturally-coloured white freshwater pearl. Complimenting this pearl is a large, glistening, untreated translucent rough diamond. My rough diamonds are all conflict-free and ethically sourced. The pearl is around 6-7mm across, as is the rough diamond.
Please consider the following textures and colours for your ring- if you do not see what you are looking for here, please get in touch for a custom design.

As this listing has so many custom features, please contact me to work out your custom design prior to ordering. The rings are built so that they may be worn stacked together, or apart. But, please consider how you will most often wear them and read the information below about ring sizing.
Ring sizing- please read: These ring sets are of very complicated construction, and are not easily resized. Please ensure you have your correct ring size for me. If you need help determining your size, I can happily help you. These rings will be sized to be worn together, unless you request otherwise. I will size you up approximately 1/2 of a ring size to ensure a comfortable fit, as wider bands fit more tightly. Please DO NOT give me a 'sized up' ring size on your own- I need your true, accurate ring size to ensure these fit properly.
If you are concerned that you may not have your size completely correct, I am happy to build your bands and send them unadorned for a fitting. You can try them on, see how they fit, and wear them around for as long as you like- this will ensure that we have your size 100% perfectly comfortable. Please realize that the fitting period adds to my production period.
This ring set will ship using a secure two business day (to most locations, but some restrictions apply) (into the USA) courier service- either or Purolator Courier, unless I can find you a better rate with Canada Post. The parcel will travel with a tracking number and delivery confirmation. Insurance coverage is set at $100. If you would like your piece fully insured, you must contact me for an insurance quote prior to ordering. Please note that I am not able to collect nor estimate the import duties your country's Customs office may charge you upon delivery. Your Customs import paperwork will be properly filled out with the contents of the package (in detail), the total value of the rings, and the fact that these are merchandise.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
I am always open to hearing your design ideas. Please contact me through the shop, or at email@example.com to discuss design possibilities.
If you are unsure of your ring size, the best way to be sized accurately is by visiting two commercial jewelers. Please ensure they size you using their thin sizing tools- not the wide band sizing tools, nor by having you try on rings from their display.
If any questions arise around being properly sized, I am always happy to help- contact me through the shop, or at firstname.lastname@example.org
I don’t provide a gift wrapping service. Rings and earrings ship in jewelry boxes that are hot foil stamped with the Specimental logo.
If the person for whom you are purchasing the piece shares your address, please be aware of the following: International export law dictates that the detailed contents of packages, and their value, be clearly marked on the outside of the package. This means that if they see the package before you do, they can easily tell what they are being gifted with.
Need secrecy for this delivery? The very best option is to have your package held for you at your closest Fed Ex store- if you are unsure of its location, I'm happy to help.
Our hands are busy objects, and any ring worn on a finger can become accidentally damaged. All rings need regular maintenance. Make sure you are buying your raw diamond ring from a jeweler with the knowledge and experience needed to ensure your stone stays put. Ask them about their warranty and their repair/upkeep policy. Look at how frequently they work with raw diamonds, and assess whether they have the technical experience to create a ring that will last your lifetime.
I stand behind each piece of jewellery I make. If something goes wrong with your ring, at any time- you slam your finger in a drawer and crush the band, you break a prong, you smash and crack your stone- you can count on me to support you with the repair.
My gold is all recycled- the metal plant I purchase it from has been in business for over 100 years. They smelt their metals to the highest environmental standards, to cause the least impact on the environment. They do not deal with newly mined metals, as these metals cause much greater destruction to the environment.
There is no visible difference between recycled metals and newly-mined metals. There is also no difference as far as the karat of the metals go- 18k recycled gold is exactly the same in constitution as 18k newly mined gold. The vast majority of my clients prefer their metals recycled, as environmental impact is of concern when choosing the perfect piece of jewelry.
I can use your heirloom stones in a new design. The stones must be pulled from their settings and checked for stability by a professional jeweler prior to shipping them to me. I cannot recycle your gold. I am not set up to smelt gold in the studio, so am not able to melt down your old gold pieces for you.
My current production times are listed in my shop announcement. If you need something more quickly, please get in touch via the shop, or at email@example.com
Depending upon my work and family schedule, I am happy to accommodate your rush orders. There is no additional charge for a rush order. However, please do get in touch prior to ordering to discuss your deadline with me.
Yes! All of my pieces are completely hand fabricated in the studio by me, from raw materials. I am able to create any of my designs with any stone, in any composition. In short, you can have your ring absolutely any way you like it. Contact me through the shop, or via firstname.lastname@example.org to get the discussion around your perfect piece of jewelry started.
A raw diamond is an exceptionally difficult stone to set properly. Their unique shape means that a custom setting needs to be fabricated for each and every stone. The way in which the setting is closed around the diamond must be approached in a very particular fashion.
I began setting these stones into my rings in 2009, when only a small handful of jewelers were working with this type of stone. As the appeal of raw diamonds has exploded, countless numbers of jewelers are now incorporating them into their designs. I have set thousands of raw diamonds into my pieces since then.
