I love the story, the ring and the couple for whom I made this engagement ring for.  A couple of months ago, I received an email from André who lives in mountain areas of New York state.  He had a pear shape Herkimer diamond and he wanted it to be set in a sturdy and an appropriate setting for Heidi’s hand and her active life style.  A Herkimer diamond is a double-terminated quartz crystal discovered within exposed part of  dolostone mostly  around Herkimer County, New York.  They have 18 facets ( 6 sides ) and two terminations.

Once I received the Herkimer diamond, I sketched an appropriate design that would hold the stone securely, accommodating its depth and non-uniform shape.  I also wanted the design to feel comfortable on the finger yet be sturdy and stunning.  Since Heidi likes plants and gardenning, I made the prongs resemble branches and I hammered the silver at Andrés request.  André has since proposed to Heidi and now the Herkimer diamond and it’s custom made setting have a new home, where they belong..on Heidi’s finger.

To a very gracious couple, love you both!

this is so beautiful! My boyfriend and I are looking at herkimer diamonds and would like to have you make something like this for us. I am a nurse and need to be able to put on gloves without tearing so that is the only thing I wonder about this design. Otherwise ILOVE IT!
