    CASE STUDY: Mismatched inherited diamonds #2

    This week we continue our design case study of mismatched inherited stones. This week I'm creating pendants and earrings. Please see previous post for our rings design solutions. I ended up designing a few pieces for this blog post and will share all of them! These images are Vray renderings and are not finished pieces. As they are just works in progress, hand created details such as engraving and millgrain are added after casting, polish and stone setting. As in the previous post, we have chosen a 0.10ct and 0.21ct round diamond.

    CASE STUDY: Mismatched inherited diamonds #1

    Since first opening our doors, Era Design has specialized in custom design. We are unusual in that we handcraft all our jewellery. We do this because we love what we do. In an industry that increasingly reduces staff, outsources work and buys semi-finished goods from catalogs, we've done the opposite. We've hired more top-notch craftspeople, have expanded our workshop and invested in new technology to achieve the best results. Even so, at the heart of the process is twenty years of experience as designers. You can make something that isn't thoughtfully designed right from the start. We're not talking about simply doing a 3D mockup on the computer. We're talking about the ability to envision a wearable custom designed wedding or engagement ring from concept to completion — one that not only fits perfectly on your finger, but with your lifestyle.

    Sparkle and Shine

This is because everyday wear allows all kinds of things like lotion, soap, cleaning agents, dust etc to build up on your ring and hide all the brilliance of it. To keep your ring clean there are a few things you can do...

    Art Deco Inspiration

    flutter earrings
    Ever since opening nine years ago we've been looking to design history for inspiration. There has been a gradual swell of interest in art deco over the last four years, however thanks to the new Gatsby phenomena it has pretty much exploded. Here is a survey of some of our favourite deco inspired jewellery designs we've done over the years.
