Organic Texture Aquamarine Ring
A gorgeous sparkling 6ct oval aquamarine is set in a tall handmade bezel setting on top of an 18ct gold undulating ring shank. The ring has an organic, beaten texture all over the solid 18ct gold, making it look like an ancient treasure.
Aquamarine, the birthstone of March, has a rich colour and has long been a symbol of youth, health and hope. Its mesmerising colour ranges from pale to deep blue and are reminiscent of the sea. A perfect birthstone for March, the aquamarine creates a beautiful accent to spring and summer wardrobes. It is also the gem that married people traditionally gift on their 19th wedding anniversary.
Disa Allsopp is fascinated by ancient civilisations that worked in metal like the Egyptians and Etruscans. She uses hand hammering, forging and reticulation techniques in 18ct gold and silver to give a luxurious textured finish with a sense of history. Metal is left in it’s natural state, often rugged and patinated for an earthy finish. By incorporating gleaming jewels in rich colours she adds to the treasure-like quality, as if discovering an ancient hoard.
Born in London, Disa grew up in Barbados and studied at Middlesex University with a Postgraduate in Jewellery at Edinburgh College of Art & Design. Disa originally set up a workshop in Barbados and then returned to London in 1996 where she currently designs and makes all her jewellery.
