The first example in the photos is of a custom ring (1.5ct cushion cut lab diamond (VS)). The client requested accent amethyst stones instead of diamonds...please email us for a specific request like this. Otherwise, your piece will be set with natural diamond accents and the gemstone you select from our Loose gems section.
Please note: we do not sell the settings by themselves as they're created to order based on a loose gemstone chosen from the shop. To have a ring made, please select a loose gemstone from the shop and then a ring setting...this will equal the full cost of the ring that will be made especially for you by hand in our workshop.
About this ring design: This design will feature a central bezel-set gemstone of your choosing with two tiny prong-set diamonds and hand-carved leaves with our hand-carved forest-textures on the band. This ring is a very low profile ring (the setting does not stick up off of the band), and can be stacked beautifully with our Locklyn ring and/or the Woodland ring (sold separately). Each ring will be hand-carved to order so there will be variations and if choosing a larger stone, we may need to scale things up a bit to keep the same look/feel.

These images were taken with a Canon DSLR and macro lens (this shows much more detail than the eye can see). Colors and brightness may vary on different devices.
