Award winning design the "Shangri-La" Ring
MJSA Vision Award , Design Excellence -2nd place Winner( 1-3 years)
"Shangri-La" Ring- This 18K rose gold ring has a 15.38ct. peachy-pink asymmetrical morganite, which sits on top and is secured with four prongs. The spiraling bezel is surrounded by white diamonds totaling .97 ct( VS2, G) with natural fancy pink diamonds totaling .54 ct on the leaf design and under the basket of the center stone, both are bead set. Also set in prongs are AAA quality pear shaped aquamarines totaling .67 ct.. The shank continues down in a wavy pattern and is very comfortable on the finger.
My inspiration was the asymmetrical, soothing peachy-pink morganite gemstone. The unusual shape challenged me to design outside of my comfort zone of typical balanced designs. Using soft tones of peach, pink and aqua, along with the aestetic of the design. All I could think about was a mystical, harmonius paradise, which I call "Shangri-La".
Made in New York with the finest craftsmanship.
