Diamonds!  
I am so excited! I've been planning this for awhile, but it took me some time to get everything into place. I'm now going to be offering a line of conflict free diamond jewelry. This means those purchasing any items made from these diamonds can be certain their jewelry purchase is not financing in any way the bloodshed and mistreatment associated with so many stones on the market today. Additionally, the "rose cut diamond" is experiencing a resurgence in popularity. A "vintage" cut, combined with the new availability of stones previously considered low grade and undesirable, have created a uniquely beautiful look. Now, these diamonds are available in all sizes, shapes, and colors, with absolutely fantastic sparkle and the same hardness and shine as their much more expensive counterparts. As soon as I saw my first rose cut colored diamond, I fell in love. I knew I had to design my own line of jewelry using them, and so, here is the first:



Total weight is 1 carat, and I've set it in argentium sterling silver, with 14k gold accents. 



If you go to my Etsy store and select the listing, then click on the pictures, it blows them up bigger, and you can see the red feathering through the cream of the stone. All of the light reflecting off the stone in the pictures is sparkle when it moves. This particular ring is sized 9.25, and could be sized up to a 10, but more rings will be coming in the future.

Thank you so much. :) I was really nervous working with gold at all for the first time, but it turned out really well, I think.
