Here are some considerations when choosing custom jewelry. Please reach out with any questions.
A comfort fit band that is rounded both on the inside and outside of the band.
More rectangular in shape, this band has a rim on the upper edge that frames the landscape.
Settings are the types of rings that hold stones, either cabochons or faceted stones. Typically the settings that I create are bezel set settings, because I like the way they look and because they are a very secure setting.
A contour band is a ring that can frame a setting, and are traditionally paired with engagement rings that have a solitaire setting. The contour band will curve around the other band so they can be worn together and compliment one another.
Sterling Silver is the most affordable metal, but also the softest of the options I offer. Will show wear fairly soon depending on your lifestyle.
2.5 on the Mohs scale of hardness.
14k Yellow Gold
At least 10 times harder than sterling, yellow gold is a beautiful color. 18k yellow gold is also available, please inquire for pricing.
14k White Gold – Nickel Alloy
10-25 times harder than sterling silver, White Gold is a fairly common choice for engagement bands. However, 30% of the population has a Nickel allergy, so it is important to know if the person that will be wearing the band has an allergy, if so the Palladium alloy is a good alternative.
14k White Gold- Palladium alloy
A comfort fit band that
10-25 times harder than sterling silver, the Palladium
White Gold alloy is slightly more expensive than the Nickel alloy of White Gold.
50-100 times harder than sterling, Platinum is both harder and more dense than White Gold. Expect for the cost to be twice the cost of White Gold, because although Platinum is a similar price to White Gold, twice the weight of metal is needed for the same volume.
Combine two metals to get a wonderful combination of colors and textures.
A mirror finish that is perfect for people who love things that are extra sparkly.
A brushed finish for those people who want something slightly understated, or for a ring with stones where the stones are meant to be the centerpiece and really stand out.
Perfect for mountain landscapes to allow the mountains to really stand out from the sky.
Currently only offered in Sterling Silver and White Gold. The recessed areas will be oxidized and the high spots will be either polished or satin finish.
This image shows a 4 mm and a 6 mm wide band. Widths are completely customizable, however I prefer not to go narrower than 4 mm for mountain bands, as the mountains start to lose definition.
This setting shows a 2.25 mm wide bans for the setting.
I use this setting for a sturdy setting for medium to larger type cabochons and faceted stones. One or multiple bezels can be used on a ring.
Stone is drill set. Typically used for smaller sized stones.
Stones are set in a channel created in the metal. Typically used for smaller sized stones.
