Meaningful Jewelry | Custom Pearl Ring

 

I was commissioned to design a ring using a single pearl from a mother's earring. A daughter wishing to remember her mother by designing a meaningful ring with her pearl.

The following images show in a few steps how we make custom jewelry. The original design shown below is hand made in reclaimed sterling silver and handcrafted in our studio.

First, we carve a new wax model to fit the client’s pearl.
