clacking wedding rings

This slightly different wedding rings are based on an idea that I have already been implemented for a jewelry ring. Actually there are two separate rings that I have combined to form a ring. In this case, the ring, which lies directly on the finger of white gold in the 585's - alloy steel.
The fact that he has a convex shape, form a broad guide on which to the outer ring (here in yellow gold) to turn freely. The outer ring has so much space that it is a shaking of the ring clacking noise. Can solve the yellow gold ring will not work because its internal diameter is slightly smaller than the outside diameter of the edges of the white gold ring. As a bonus for the ladies, a small diamond ring has been caught. The customers had told me afterwards that it is fun to play with the ring on her finger.

Famous Pearls

A famous pearl is the Pellegrina . This pearl was the beginning of the 19th Century to the Russian Jewellers Zosima to Moscow sold. Their exact origin is not known. However, it is possible that this is a rare jewel of the French crown jewels is that disappeared during the French Revolution. This pearl was missing, "Reine des Perles". It was silvery, round and weighed 5.6 g. A Pellegrina as designated by Perle appeared in London in 1935 an exhibition on. But she had the shape of a teardrop. It is still not known what the original Pellegrina Pearl has become the out. Whether it is information from Russia is not known to me.

Belt buckle in sterling silver with wood and gold

This oval belt buckle is in sterling silver work and fit into a 4 cm wide belt. It is simple and straightforward, and yet it works through the color contrast and the different surface structures in the metal. The dark brown tone of the ebony and the cool sheen of silver in the sunlight harmonize quite well. Focus is the polished wooden track in a frame of yellow gold (585 -).
I think that you can wear this buckle both with jeans and an elegant suit.

Wide plain silver ring with tourmaline

Here I present a 

, Simple, almost classical ring in silver with a tourmaline in a 585 / - before he replaced. The tourmaline is cut in cabochon and is centrally focus on the solid ring rail. The polished surface of the rail has a thin elongated structure in contrast to the text and the stone, with its beautiful clear color.
I personally like precious stones in cabochon actually more than faceted stones when they received only by their color appearance.
