Raindrops of gold with glints of white sparkly diamonds and a beautiful Ceylon sapphire in a rich yellow 22 karat gold granulated setting. Here is ancient granulation re-interpreted for the modern world. Your ring will be handcrafted to order with two tiny white diamonds mixed in with the granules.
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 6 to 11. Sapphire is a faceted, 6 mm round stone.
Available immediately in size 7. Other sizes made to order, please allow up to 21 days for fabrication. Progress reports will be emailed.
