I had my misgiving about this design as it was coming together but they completely went away as soon as it came out from its oxidation bath. The princess cut garnet sparkles brilliantly against the distressed band while both the layered wires and open band provide visual and textural interest. This works, and I’m thankful it does. Size 7.5 available for booking but I’ll be happy to purpose make a copy with any other stone of your choice. A peridot would work well with this I think, or an icy aquamarine. That, and for the next one, I’d like to try offsetting how the band meets, so that it’s not aligned in parallel.
