A statement ring in glorious 22 karat gold granulation. Raindrops of gold with glints of white sparkly diamonds and richly colored Tourmaline. Here is ancient granulation re-interpreted for the modern world. Each ring is handmade to order in solid 22 karat gold with your choice of color: rubellite (red), deep forest green, tree leaf green (medium), mint green, and rich teal. Each ring has two tiny white diamonds mixed in with the granules. Granule pattern will vary from ring to ring.
Granulation is an ancient technique, mastered by relatively few goldsmiths. It takes years of practice using the purest of metals. Each tiny granule is made by hand, and making enough for one piece of jewelry can take weeks. Each granule is placed one by one using a tiny brush. The piece is heated almost to the melting point. At that precise moment, the granules fuse and become one with the item being granulated. The technique is evident in museum collections featuring ancient jewelry.
Stamped with artist's hallmark and available in whole and half sizes 5.5 to 11. Each tourmaline is 6 mm round.
