To view beautiful emeralds is to fall in love.
If someone said to me, “Katie, if you could make for yourself ANY piece of jewelry –regardless of cost– what would it be?”
Go on, ask me.
I would, my inquisitive friends, make myself a big ole’ emerald ring. I’d get an enormous emerald-cut stone (big enough to be truly vulgar. As big as a baby’s head. A really big fat baby.), and I’d set it in 20k.
In the meantime, while I wait for a baby-head sized emerald to fall at my feet, I made this!
This stone is 5mm, and I don’t think I’ve ever set a 5mm stone that pops the way this does. The 18k certainly plays up the green, but emeralds have a vibrancy and luster no other gem does. So full of life and joy; how can anyone be sad wearing an emerald?
Today I also touched up the bezel on the granulated garnet ring from yesterday. Take a close look, and see if you notice the difference.
And with that, my darlings, I think it’s time to get my weekend on. I hope you all have nothing but the best of weekends!
