Ring 8 of 10; tourmalinated quartz ring in sterling silver with emerald and blue sapphire

10 rings in 10 weeks

My “10 rings in 10 weeks” project allows me to play and encourage my creativity. I also wanted to allow myself time to learn some new skills and work on projects that I’ve been wanting to for a long time, but not got around to. Follow my journey from the first to the 10th ring!

I’ve been launching a new ring every Friday; in my newsletter and on social media. My loyal subscribers will always get a little early access, so if you’d like to be one of the first to see each ring, sign up to my newsletter, there’s a sign-up form below. ⁣

All the rings will be for sale on my website and will come in a special gift box to treat yourself or someone you care for.

And now for ring number 8!

Ring 8: Tourmalinated quartz ring with emerald and sapphire

Ring number 8 is yet again a bit of a statement! It features a large drop shaped quartz gem with striking black tourmaline “needle” like inclusions. An emerald and a sapphire set asymmetrically to one side add some little pops of colour to this otherwise monochrome ring. The ring band is tapered from very wide at the front of the ring, to a comfortable width at the back. It’s made from recycled sterling silver and the fused textures gives it plenty of edgy character. The dark patina and brushed finish with polished high spots emphasizes this further. The quartz stone is set in an open back setting so you can see through the gorgeous gem with its black lines. Despite its size this ring is very comfortable and easy to wear. A bit of an understated statement ring, fit for an everyday warrior princess – or queen!

This one off statement quartz ring is now available in my shop, ready to ship in a UK size P (US size 7 1/2). You can also see the other rings in the 10 rings series.

The making of the quartz ring

Just a little progress shot of the making of this gorgeous quartz ring! Making a setting for the large stone and texturing the wide ring band.
