Bespoke wishbone rings May 03 2016, 0 Comments

A growing part of my design work at the moment is creating bespoke wishbone rings to fit around different shaped engagement rings, so I thought I would share a few of these.

My Holly wishbone is generally the starting point for most of these. I made this ring for my friend Holly to go with an engagement ring I made, this version has a soft, slightly curved shape and quite a small dip to go with a small, round diamond.

This wider more geometric version I recently made for Nikki to go with a square topped vintage ring, with an amazing emerald and teeny diamonds.

These silver prototypes were to go with an oval stoned ring. (The bottom right is the prototype for Nikki's ring above, read about her bespoke ring experience on her blog.)

 The final version is in 9ct rose gold.

And finally an 18ct yellow gold version with a smallish curve to go with an emerald cluster ring.

My process generally involves making up a couple of silver prototypes to be tried with the engagement ring to confirm the shape, weight and finish of the final ring.

If you're looking for a simple, elegant ring to sit with an unusually shaped engagement ring send me an email I would love to hear from you.
