CUSTOM DESIGN STORY: A TOURMALINE GYPSY RING
BY LINDSEY SCOGGINS STUDIO
THE STORY OF A ONE OF A KIND TOURMALINE GYPSY RING
We designed this tourmaline gypsy link ring for a client who was looking for a special piece to add to her collection. She wanted us to design something that embodied strength, made a statement and also used a colorful gemstone. We suggested our Oath setting, making this ring the third iteration of our Oath ring designs. We've previously made our Oath pinky rings that have included a classic Oath cuff pinky ring and a one of a kind diamond pinky ring. This Oath ring is the most statement making yet, and is sure to be an important heirloom for generations to come. Read the full story behind this beautiful custom designed ring below.
THE INITIAL DESIGN OPTIONS
These are the original designs that we shared with our client to match two different gemstones. Both designs feature chain link detailing along the band that meet to form the setting at the gemstone. We also included an option with and without the scored line detailing intersecting the link detailing and band. These designs have to be tailored to each specific gemstone to perfectly match their dimensions.
A WORK IN PROGRESS
This casting included separate pieces that had to be soldered together to complete the ring. Some of the sprues are still visible on this casting and the setting for the center stone looks so different from the finished piece.
THE FINAL PIECE
The final piece is a beautiful heirloom ring that is sure to start conversations and attract admirers whenever it is worn. The mesmerizing center stone is a vibrant shade of green that pairs perfectly with the rich tone of the 18 karat yellow gold setting. The center stone is a stunning 4.5 carat green tourmaline. We love all of the details of this band with intricate link detailing around the sides and face of the ring as well as grooved lines that intersect throughout. The tiniest of details add a unique element to the design that makes this ring stand out even more. We were sad to see this stunning ring leave the studio but can't wait to see it out in the wild on the hand of our client.
Shown with another iteration of the gypsy link design, these rings make the perfect pair.
A SPINEL GYPSY LINK RING
This grey spinel gypsy link ring in 18 karat rose gold is another version of this design that we made. This spinel is even more stunning in person.
