Victorian nipple ring with emeralds and diamonds

A customer Alison wanted us to create a Victorian looking circular barbell from one of her Grandmother's old rings. An initial design was sketched out and the job was completed. Alison picked it up the next morning and was delighted.

To get an antique effect BMG head goldsmith Barnaby King used 3 methods of plating including a black rhodium, which after applying was polished off leaving a blackening on all of the low points, giving the piece an aged look. The piece is made from 18 carat yellow, white and rose gold.

This job is not really suitable for CAD CAM as we deemed it cheaper to make by hand
