A few weeks ago I posted this pict of the new line by Carla Caruso. She was getting ready for the New York Gift fair and no price where up yet. Now that the fair is over she has them listed on there site. I'm so excited to share them with you again with a full price list. Something I really like about her work is it's very affordable and she uses white sapphire. By using white sapphires it helps to keep the cost down dramatically and they still look great. She is willing to use other stones if one request.
Champagne and Silver Galaxy Diamond. These are just very flawed diamond. I work with this in the piece I make.
I personally find the flaws beautiful and unique perfect is boring.
I wonder how this would look with a pale champagne diamond or a galaxy against the satin finish. I bet it be lovely. When I say Galaxy diamond I mean a very flawed but sparkly diamond.

This might be a fun analogy to some and you can blame the influences of having the movie Excalibur on in the background but, these rings feel very royal medieval to me. I state this as a positive and I think King Aurther would totally wear these. I know I would. They have a very unique style and look and his gem selection is fantastic. He uses old cuts and antique stones, as well as ethically sourced.
All of his work has a slightly hammer look and roughness that adds to the beauty of the pieces. These techniques work in a way that accentuates his beautiful choice in gems. I'm in love with the combined metal bands.
