Custom piece in progress. #TinaTang #Jewelry

I love designing custom pieces!  A long time client, Danielle, had two diamond rings handed down from her grandmother which she wants to make into one necklace she would wear daily.   I suggested she get the diamonds graded first at GIA (Gemological Institute of America) which is the gold standard in diamond grading, respected globally.  GIA inscribed a serial number on each diamond and indicated the unique aspects of her diamonds so she can always confirm what she gets back in return.Today, Danielle came back with her two diamonds and our discussed sketch for her custom piece. Can you see the diamonds in the bottom right?  A .24ct and a .49ct diamond.Danielle decided she wanted a horseshoe and we discussed where the diamonds would sit inside the horseshoe.  It seems simple but often simple is what's beautiful.  Our next step in the process is to get the wax model of it so she can see how it will look before it is cast into 14kt white gold.  I'll keep you posted when we get to that step.
