Suzanne's Apricot Tourmaline Heart

This piece for me, is not a ring, but a miniature sculpture. A juicy apricot heart is held within five gold claws, but the real magic lies in the asymmetric teardrops that support the stone. Set into each handmade rose gold bezel and holding either a pigeon blood, Burmese ruby or a green tourmaline, is a teardrop. Playing with the angles that we view and appreciate jewellery from, the stories they tell, and the significance a shape can hold, this piece, for me, pushes the boundaries of what jewellery is.
