Designing Nuala’s Gold And Sapphire Curl Ring: Idea 1

In this image we are Designing Nuala’s Gold And Sapphire Curl Ring: Idea 1. Nuala had a really lovely sapphire from an old sentimental ring that she wanted remodelled into a new ring for a ‘special’ birthday. Something that she would wear everyday, something colourful, something to show off her personality.

I had such fun designing this ring. So many ideas – what shape would Nuala like. What stone colours could we add into the mix. I typically will brainstorm around nine designs to start. Its how I work – trying out different shapes and combinations. You can check-out the final result here!

When we move from a design into actually making a ring, its important to visually look at the all the components to get a better understanding of size and scale. Drawing a stone for example in a design may not be the exact size of the stone in ‘real life’. So its important to have a play.

We play around with selecting two additional sapphires to compliment Nuala’s own oval sky-blue one. Here we are trying two square shapes – a green and a pink one, as Nuala likes greens and pinks. Where are they going to go, how am I going to set them?
