La Grande Mer Ring
This opulent ring is the ultimate expression of the cluster styles I have been exploring in my work and is a celebration of the vast ocean that surrounds our Australian continent. I wanted to push the potential for this aesthetic and carefully hand selected a series of locally sourced Australian parti sapphires in various cuts and sizes for this one-of-a-kind ring. The smaller gems surround and enhance the central stone creating a decadent and lush ring.
This ring was handmade in our Melbourne workshop for Arcobaleno exhibition presented by Pieces of Eight Gallery.
18ct yellow gold set with a 3.11ct oval cut Australian parti sapphire 9.30mm x 7.30mm, and varying sized marquise and round brilliant cut Australian parti sapphires, 4.10tcw.
Top section sits on a 2mm split knife edge band, matte finish
