Hi Jim,

Sorry for the confusion. I was referring to the Scythian comb that you listed (the one from the Hermiage Museum). I must’ve replied to the wrong post. That’s what I get for commenting with in the evening with a Manhanttan in hand :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Red today…
A pretty little (1.5 ct) Burma ruby in a hand fabricated platinum ring. Bordering the ruby are two, 1/2 round shaped diamonds and additional round diamonds accenting the sides.
18K yellow details soften the look a bit. The background is hand engraved with a “Florentine” pattern. Fun to make…
Enjoy,
Jim

Good Day Jim,
I always start my morning here by opening the mail box to see something new
to AWE upon from your immense collection of images and memories.
Great work and such inspirational pieces, my day starts good on seeing
beautiful pieces of jewelry made.
God bless those hands, and pray they stay active always, so we get to see
more and more.
Warm regards,
Khushroo H.Kotwal

South Western Color (2)
Round two…
This was a series experiment in this design theme, based in rich colors and materials, (tourmaline), sourced from Pala Mines in San Diego, the intent was to capture the spirit of an earlier time.
Hand fabricated 22k yellow gold, hand hammered and some pieces showing a reticulated (textured) finish around the stone.
All detailed with platinum accents.
Enjoy,
Jim

Ornate…
When one celebrates their 60th wedding anniversary, it can be expected that the design taste will somewhat reflect the previous 80 or so years of experience, as does this piece.
With it’s un heated, 1 ct. Burma ruby and detailed platinum fabrication, it’s of an era.
Enjoy,
Jim

Kashmir again ( I never tire of these.
A 3 ct + stone, Unheated, crystalline in clarity…
Mounted in a 18K and platinum suite (wedding and engagement set), platinum inner liner for strength (and detail, ) 18 K outer face, pave’ set.

Color…
Gems hold so many surprises,. This for instance is a “Banded” tourmaline crystal, rare but not costly.
Framed in 18K and platinum with just a hint of styling.
happy on either sex.
