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.
