Selecting silver jewellery
Selecting silver jewellery is consistent and time effective. It is only a means of re-production. Casting of silver predominately consists of molding the metal into various shapes and sizes. The pendants, necklaces, bangles, bracelets, puja thali, anklets and earrings that are currently designed in silver are remarkably similar to those that have been made centuries ago.
The designs exhibit rarest patterns made in the industry. This antique jewellery is made from all types of silver including pure silver, German silver and sterling silver. Casting or founding is shaping of metal by melting and pouring into a mold. Exotic and timeless, antique silver jewellery are now high fashion and are suddenly very chic collectible to wear.

Cut of the stone
Firstly we talked about the cut of the stone. Now finding a good quality bright green tourmaline with this cut is not impossible to find but can be tricky so we decided that custom cutting was the way forward. We custom cut the green tourmaline from a larger cushion stone to create the look. We combined the chequer board facetted cut on top but with a more square proportioned shape rather than oval. The lapidaries squared up the proportions and then facetted the top of the stone.
This creating a square cushion shape with a facetted top! Donna felt a straight sided square stone would be a little harsh so decided that she would like to have the stone with softened corners. The initial stone was 1.72cts and ended up at 1.05ct. After being cut gemstone it is difficult. We searched for a green tourmaline of the right colour that could be cut to shape. The twist ring is simple in style holds the tourmaline for a modern design.
