My Mother loves adventure. I love that she spontaneously took this trip to India on her own with a small group of people she barely knew. She is over 70 and still excited about each new possibility. The treasure she brought home is this gorgeous 3ct Emerald cabochon gem. I am so excited to transform her emerald into an heirloom she can wear and be reminded of her special trip. Follow the journey of my mother's emerald from gem to treasured jewel here on my blog.
The big reveal will be on Mother's Day May 14th of course!
My first round of sketches for the ring show on the left one design with the gem oriented in two different ways and a side view to show more detail of the setting. The idea on the right is similar though paired down with the prongs oriented like an X as you can see from the detail I've drawn of the underside of the setting. The top right shows the prongs folded up to capture the gem.
If you were to choose, which one is your favorite design?
