East West Pear Shaped Opal and Diamond Ring



Material: 18k yellow gold, oxidized silver

Stone Type/Carat Weight: Opal 3.0 cts., Diamonds 0.50 cts.

Dimensions: 12mm x 16mm

This is a 18k yellow gold Crownwork® east/west ring with pear shaped opal  with diamond surround in oxidized silver on inverted shank. This is a classic 1950s/60s shape that I transformed into a new format with my crownwork®. It makes the rings open, airy and visually light. They are very stable, the sides come up so they don’t move from side to side. The name Opal comes from the Sanksrit word upala, meaning ‘precious stone’ and later the Greek derivative Opallios meaning ‘to see a change of color’. Diamond is a very precious gemstone, diamonds take billions of years to form deep within the Earth’s crust under conditions of intense heat and pressure that cause carbon atoms to crystallise, forming diamonds.

Crownwork® Friends

What is Crownwork®?

Crownwork® is the grid like pattern that features in all Ray Griffiths designs.

Crownwork®’s design roots are in Ray’s early training restoring Vintage European Suites of Jewelry. Aside from the distinctive design element and being the signature of Ray’s work, Crownwork® takes much of the weight from the jewelry, allowing Ray’s designs to retain visual heft yet remain light and easy to wear.
