Winter branches diamond and gold alternative engagement or wedding ring
Sometimes you just have to go for it.
I wanted to go all out and create something that was not limited by the constraints of a typical wedding band. This piece is for edgier customers who are looking for a wearable piece of free-form, organic sculpture that remains slightly grounded by the sparkle and color of the stones.
I used a slightly different technique to create this ring than I do for most of my bands. I created the master over many weeks, carefully forming and adding branches and soldering each one by hand. Once I was happy with the form, I had the original cast by a master caster in New York (I’ve worked with many casters and this is the only one who can accurately cast such an intricate, delicate design). Each ring is cast individually after adjusting the mold to size. I then finish the casting and add the stones by hand.
This ring is perfect for someone who wants a piece of jewelry that will stop conversations as they enter the room. It’s also a great anniversary or right-hand band. Please note that the shape of this ring necessitates a more delicate structure, however, so you might want to put it on AFTER your sweater.
Please make your band choice from the drop-down menu and put your ring size(s) when checking out.
Back of band is approx. 6mm, Face from tip to tip is approx. 20mm.
6 diamonds or sapphires in a mix of stone sizes, with the largest approx. 2.5mm.
The stone choices are designed for the specific material. In the gold, I use a combo of silvermist and lab diamonds. The silver and palladium use yellow sapphires. However, any color of diamond or sapphire could be substituted. If you’re interested in making changes, get in touch with me at [email protected]

I use lab-grown diamonds as the default in all my diamond work, although I will use conflict-free mined diamonds by customer request. For more information about stone choices and my approach to ecologically-conscious and ethically-madejewelry, please click here.
