Five Green Gemstones Ring

Five Green Gemstones Ring

My lovely client Natasha found a picture of an amazing antique ring, and got me to make her a similar style using a selection of green gemstones.

The stones are serpentine, prehnite, chrysoprase, peridot and aventurine.

It looks amazing worn on the first finger – the stones wrap around and are all visible to be admired! Thanks, as always, to Natasha for her friendship and artistic vision.

I created this pendant and earrings set in collaboration with a beautiful customer. We worked together to match the stones and come up with the design idea.

The shape of the pieces mirror the pattern in the drusy. The pieces are for a gift for Sonia’s daughter, a Taurean – the stones are both birthstones for the sign of Taurus, so very fitting!

Thanks so much, Sonia, it was such a pleasure and an honour to collaborate with you.
