A special sapphire ring commission
A couple of months ago, our sleek North London stockist Tomfoolery approached us with a very intriguing project in mind. Laura, their always stylish managing director, paid us a visit with a very large, very beautiful, clear blue sapphire the size my index fingerprint - an impressive 4.09ct stone.
Laura wanted us to make a completely unique and exciting ring incorporating the sapphire and gave us free reign over the design. Ruth’s imagination was fuelled with inspiration from new design developments that she’d been working on, so she looked to these as the basis for the final design: a magnificent asymmetric creation using 1.5ct of white and grey diamonds in an array of cuts clustered around the sapphire, all set amongst tiny granules of 14ct yellow gold.
The ring is now part of Tomfoolery’s exquisite online exhibition celebrating the jewellery makers at the heart of its 20 year history: COLLECTIBLE by tomfoolery. You can also visit their gorgeous jewellery gallery in Muswell Hill to see it and try it on in person.
