This one is all about contrast.
Sure, contrast is integral to all my collections - but the Ridge collection takes it to a new level. I get so many requests to set stones directly in the cobalt chrome, and that just isn't possible because cobalt chrome is way to hard to push over a stone (even a diamond) without breaking it!
But this doesn't stop me from trying - or at least trying to achieve the look I think my customers want. Filling a gold strip with diamonds so the metal is barely visible, and sinking said strip flush with the cobalt, brings me as close as I've ever been.
The result is a technical feat that is so distinctive that at first glance it looks like there are diamonds set in the black metal, and oh what an amazing contrast!
And, keeping with my new found love of gemstones, you will find many one of a kind designs as well.
