Two-Generation Rings

Jewellery outlives people. Not always, but often. I like to make things that I can feel fairly sure will make it down two or three generations. Here are two rings that were made with this idea in mind, under these guiding principles:

  • They should be able to last two generations – the workmanship should be sturdy, the engraving deep, the stone hard, its colour durable even when finely scratched.
  • They should have simple classic designs, so that the next generation won’t have to be embarrassed by the previous one’s taste. (I think of the inherited ‘60s rings that I have to melt down from time to time.)

Both rings have a simple hexagonal bezel and are tapered at the bottom for comfort.
