For a rich, truly unique engagement ring, consider this completely hand fabricated 22k gold granulated solitaire, made in the traditions of ancient goldsmiths. It’s created with my extremely pure custom alloy. Starting with pure gold and I add a drop of alloy material to make it workable, yet able retain the purity and glorious rich yellow of high karat gold. Granulation is extremely specialized and exacting, requiring the purest of metals and the highest skills from the artisan.
Granulation is an ancient method of decorating metal using basically the same methods employed in antiquity. Each tiny granule is formed by hand. This can take several days. When hundreds of granules have been made to match each other in size, they are placed one by one on the piece with a tiny brush. The piece is heated almost to the melting point. At that precise moment, the granules fuse and become one with the piece. No solder can be used. Granulated jewelry graces the displays in many museums around the world; a testament to its timeless beauty.
This granulated engagement ring features a half carat white diamond. This ring is highly customizable. For pricing of custom settings, stones, or other options, please email me.
