About This Project

The brief for this piece was to create a ring around a sapphire that the client had provided.

The client wanted to give the ring to his wife as a “love nest” present in gratitude for her dedication as a wonderful mother. The ring was to be different from anything available on the High Street and, although the client was good friends with the well known jeweller, Malcolm Betts, he chose to use Richard to provide something of an alternative style.

After a lengthy discussion Richard hand-forged the ring in an organic style from red gold and green gold – a blend of silver and pure gold that he made himself as it cannot be bought.
