Gold Filigree, Opal and Garnet Ring
This client had already bought a deep boulder opal and large garnet to have made into a ring for herself. She asked Tara Lois to design and create a statement 18 carat gold ring using these stones.
Many jewellery makers would surround the stones in simple gold collets but Tara Lois learned that the client liked irregular quirky jewellery, and this was reflected in the designs she submited which created a unified concept, working with the client’s other opal jewellery.
The client loved a design which accentuated the juxtaposition of the large raised stones and lower delicate gold filigree. These were encircled by an irregular outline which twists as it meets the filigree filled ring shank. The opal is the star of the ring and changes colour from mauve to blue with flecks of other colurs, depending on the light.

“I truly love this ring. It works because nothing is symmetrical. I couldn’t believe how well Tara Lois understood what I wanted and how well she made it. I’m not sure it is her style but it is absolutely mine.”
