Custom Rubies

Posted on 05 January 2017

We are always blessed here to have some really fun and interesting custom work on the go for our customers, however we had a couple projects that Kenny finished up in time for Christmas which I just had to share with you...

 

We started out as we often do with some family pieces that were not being used - we looked at the stones that would be suitable to use in a custom project and more importantly - stones that are stunning.

Once we established the general direction the designs would head down, I laid down a few sketches just to make sure we were on the same page... This is not a step we normally include, however sometimes with a more complex design it can help to speed up the process.

We use these to show a layout of the design including any stones to the exact scale - many of the subtleties and finishing touches are done by hand on the bench, and cannot be seen in the drawings here.

Once these drawings and a wax model of the designs are approved, we can get to work on bringing our ideas to life! These projects were a real labor of love, and display the enormous talent of our goldsmith Kenny!
