April 2012 - Not Just A Pearl Ring

Having seen the Tahitian pearl in many jewelry designs since 1995, I wanted again to offer something unique, like I had done with 
Tahitian Designs by having carved Polynesians motifs on the pearls. So this time I tried to focus on creative ways to present the pearl while using my multi-cultural background and my love for both classic and contemporary designs. I remembered the intricate geometric metal work of France's Eiffel Tower, recalled the structure of traditional small bird cages in China, and was inspired by New York designer Geoffrey Good knowing he would be able to add his unusual designs ways. In the end Atelier Leseine and Geoffrey Good designed a elegant pearl ring both classic and modern. A single 11-12mm round finest-quality Tahitian black pearl is captured within a multifaceted polyhedron cage (9/16" at its widest), and rising from a gracefully arching ring. Pierced to show the prize within, the cage frames the pearl with delicate diamond pavé, approx .50ct TDW. Handcrafted in 18k white gold-palladium in our NYC workshop. This ring is for a woman who wants to affirm her unusually unique style with discretion and powerful elegance.
