I spent some time looking back through history at old European jewels,  I went through my library of books and studied royal jewelry for inspiration.  I wanted to start with something formal and go from there.  Watching Downton Abbey sparked a design fire in my brain, I love that British Regency period.

These rings are very elongated, I love the length. It cuts back over the arch of your hand.  Then my architectural sensibilities set in and I added in a linear curve, all the curves and line on this ring match, its seamless.

For the stones I went with two different approaches.  A very classical approach as illustrated by the sapphire and diamond ring below and a very 60s modern approach with diamonds and ovals illustrated by the black diamond and moonstone ring.

The possibilities for this ring are infinite and thats why I love it so much.
