.70ct Old Mine Cut Diamond Cladonia Ring
Organic Modernist in 18k Gold
* * SOLD * *
Soulful and sparkling, an antique, .70 carat old mine cut diamond sits, nested, inside a thick-walled, organic bezel, which tapers seamlessly into its ring's integral shank. This ring is modern and organic— its graceful shape is reminiscent of the beautiful pixie cup lichens (Cladonia asahinae). Metal is 18k yellow gold; it is delicately brushed. Old mine cut diamonds are much loved by collectors for their unique, hand-cut character, their small, high, tables, open culets, and off-round shape.
This ring was entirely handcrafted in Portland, OR, by collaborating, independent craftspeople and designers— even the antique diamond was sourced locally.
