It then comes to our rural Oregon studio for stone setting and brilliant hand polishing before being shipped, fully insured, to your door! Socially and environmentally sound American quality jewelry you'll be proud to wear.

Braided twist woven design.

Ring and Gemstone Images:
For the main product image, we take a picture of the actual gem that will be used in this ring. Then we edit that gem photo into a CGI render of the ring so that you can get a realistic idea of what the finished design will look like. In general, our gems look better in person than in photographs.
The rest of the pictures are photo-realistic CGI renders from our CAD program, a ubiquitous practice that most online jewelry sellers won't even tell you about. The gems in these secondary images aren't realistic; please refer to the main product image and our photo of the actual gemstone for a realistic view of the stone.
Buying a Gemstone Engagement Ring? Avoid This Scam:
It's common for jewelry sites to call everything they sell an "engagement ring." That's unethical, because engagement rings are purchased with the expectation that they will be worn for a lifetime. Very few gems are durable enough to survive that long in a ring without cracking, wearing, and scratching. If someplace tries to sell you an opal or pearl engagement ring in particular, run. A pearl is roughly as hard as your fingernails.
So what gems make the short list for engagement ring durability?
Speaking of durability: Even though they look cool, we do not sell so-called "black gold rings." There is no such thing as a black gold alloy, and rings being sold as black gold are just regular gold with black plating. The black coating will quickly wear and scratch.
