This is a treasure! When you look thru the table top of this 2.25ct Emerald the natural veils in the gem and the hand cut design in the gold come together to create breathtaking beauty. The emerald is held in its original 200 year old setting of 18k gold and pure silver with a hand sawn floral design on the back, when you look closely at it you can still see the tiny saw marks of the jeweler who lovingly created it so long ago. Having lost it's original purpose of being a clasp I decided it would make a lovely ring, I had my hand fabricator create a band for it with just the right balance in just the right color of recycled gold, using age old techniques. I've collected bits and bobs for decades, and this lovely Flat table cut Emerald in its amazing hand cut setting has been lingering in the vault awaiting its reincarnation. Re using jewels that no longer work in their original capacity is one of the ways that I care for the planet, I am obsessed with using what we already have to create something fresh and relevant. #recyclingisbeautiful
