Which Colour Will Look Best?

Sometimes it can be really hard to imagine how colours will look together.  You might know the colour of the stone you want, but then what metal should the band be made of?

Lauren’s Hidden Gem ring was to be made with a citrine stone (with her preserved breastmilk to be hidden beneath the citrine).  This is her birth stone (she is born in late November), but it also holds special significance to her, with Citrine being believed to have the power to bring abundance, success, optimism and confidence.

I share a lot of my finished pieces on Instagram and Facebook, but this was the first ring of this design that I had made before.  And anyway, sometimes a customer wants to see something that hasn’t been done before.

Lauren loves Rose Gold, but she didn’t know how the citrine would look with it, and she was considering having the ring made with another metal.

Thankfully, I am able to digitally create pictures of rings.  For Lauren, I was able to create images of what citrine would look like, set in yellow, white and rose gold.  These pictures gave Lauren the confidence to go ahead with a rose gold band.

My custom resin stones are individually hand-made, so the results will often vary.  But for the Hidden Gem rings, I can help you choose the right band colour just like I helped Lauren.
