Gold diamond

solitairgolddiamond2 NG|For my advanced goldsmith exam I’d to make a traditional engagement ring. Since I did not have a big stone, I’ve made a hand-faceted one out of a nugget. The little gold balls keep the ring upright, a trick I’ve learned from Philip Sajet:

“A piece should give an answer to an unasked question, otherwise people just walk away. I aim for essential and meaningful jewellery. Design has a primary goal, but art is meant to offer something else. Life has a signification. I never wonder if a piece is going to be successful. I now believe in the necessity of a piece, and not being slavelike to design. I respect my public, but I can’t care about their desires and needs. I do about 40 pieces a year: the pieces I want to make. It is enough to live comfortably and keep working. You need to start from your inner self, then take some distance and get higher.”
