Project You Had Me At Zug Zug

Another incredibly enjoyable bespoke project, this time from B, who like many of our dear male clients, gave us carte blanche. We picked out a really blingy aquamarine trilliant, which was rare because aquamarines tend to have a slightly waxy undertone.

Then, we went to town with leafy vine theme, with the 18KT solid gold leaves and vines curving up to cup the aquamarine gently, together with a liberal sprinkling of milgrained diamond-studded leaves. The shank was heavily organically asymmetrical and a lot thicker in order to allow for more embellishments on the side. This was also because the trilliant was quite a bit bigger than our usual gemstone and thus justified a wider shank.

Just as so many of our bespoke clients before this, the engraving chosen was something personal; this time, it was a tongue-in-cheek reference to World Of Warcraft, and it’s likely you’ll go “awwwww” if you play it. :)
