statement ring with lapis lazuli

Like a Golden Cloud..

.. framing her piece of sky, it’s what I though when this gorgeous lapis lazuli was set.

I had this amazing chunky rosecut lapis lazuli sitting on my bench for a very long time, without a clear idea about what to do with it.

I knew it should be a ring, for sure, but how? All the traditional setting didn't feel right for the dimension of the stone.

Then I had this idea about creating something new: a chunky setting that reflect  the size of the stone, but at the same time juxtaposing its geometric shape with something more organic, roundish, bubbly.

It took a lot of hammering after the casting to have that beautiful frame closed tight around the lapis lazuli, but isn’t it amazing?

Sending love
