ClassicSparklers’ Rings on Etsy

I have always been a traditional girl.

One ring on the ring finger.  Both ring fingers, not in the middle, and definitely in not all!

Fast forward to a decade — to the minimalist age, I’d say.  And this is what you’ll see on me:

Not at all tacky as I originally thought.  Its quite a bit more classy, timeless and edgy!  This fascination with stacking rings had me decide to finally bring them to the Classicsparklers brand.  Most of those I first posted on my online shop have been sold and here are the three available ones:

We accept custom pieces as well*.

Nevertheless, here is what my lovely client has reserved:

These rings take some time to make so if you prefer to have one customized, perhaps as a gift for that special someone for Christmas, or for yourself, it will be best to place the order now.  You can leave a message in etsy or at joanne@classicsparklers.com.

* But as with all online shops, some place orders and then forget about them, leaving the pieces waiting for forever 😦  That’s a little disappointing fact we all have experienced because we lose potential sales and/or customers who would want that piece for herself.  We’ve all had our own share so I have made it a point to wait for a week (I’d appreciate it more if clients communicate to me that it will take them a while coz perhaps they’re on a trip or something, and in that case, I will hold the item longer than a week).

Rings!

Beautiful new rings that just arrived and are ready for the shop! Here are two I’d like to share:

This features faceted peridot briolette on hammered/textured band.  Peridot is the birthstone for August.

This one is sapphire quartz in a square form! Sapphire is the birthstone for September.

By the way, the first batch of rings have been sent to our partners in India.  I cannot wait to see how they will be executed because they always come out more beautiful than the original!

Thank you to all who placed their orders.  We will be announcing the second batch soon so stay tuned 🙂

The Ring

I mentioned before that we will be launching a new collection soon.

Here it is!

Beautiful and gorgeous rings made with semi-precious gemstones bezel set with the band and bezel made from sterling silver dipped in 24k solid gold.  The gemstones came out so beautifully and I’m liking how the color of the band turned out.  Most of the time silver dipped in gold usually turns out very yellowish gold.  Something I don’t quite feel like having.  But the color of this one turned out pretty pretty good.

Wear them on their own like this:

Or use several of them on your fingers like this:

Or stack them up one by one to create a whole new look!

All birthstone gemstones are available such as:

The Opera

The request:  Opera-length necklace adorned with sapphire and peridot quartz birthstones of the Floral Retreat Collection.

The materials:  Natural pyrite, 14k gold chain and wire, sapphire and quartz briolettes AND hours and hours of weaving, crocheting etc.

The result:

36-inch necklace detachable to form 2 strands with 2 detachable pendants. This is keeping in line with ClassicSparklers’ philosophy of versatility in each piece bring you more value for your money 🙂

This piece was about a month and a half in the making.  Our first opera length necklace.  When it comes to design and execution challenges such as this, we really take our time in making them.  Thus, you are assured of high quality bridge jewelry that is a wearable work of art.

Gold prices are still increasing, so if you’d like me to create something like this for you, send an email at thedesigner@classicsparklers.com or leave a message in facebook.

Floral Retreat Limited Edition Necklace

When my mom was sick, I busied myself making lots of beautiful things I knew mom would like.  She loved seeing me work and loved it even more seeing the finished product.  It was good that I received lots of Christmas orders.  During this time, I also experimented on other designs and decided to make them part of a new collection.

This past weekend, while working on some more of these, an intricately surprising idea came to my head and I made this:

I used 5 of my floral charms and added them to a chain adorned with Austrian crystals.

I’ve decided to make it a bespoke piece and can only be ordered in my shop.

Trio Burst

The request:  Make a jewelry set that will match the dress of a client’s wife

The dilemma: It has to be done in 2 weeks.

The solution: I asked the client to send me a photo of the wife’s dress.  I received the email 5 days later.

The dress had hints of red-orange.  It had a satin sheen that displayed darker colors under different lights and under shadows.

I was at lost with what necklace design I could make.

I had to make the necklace stand out against the dark and light effect of the dress but without making a distraction.  I wanted to make it blend but not really. I wanted to craft it in a way that the client’s wife will be able to use it on formal occasions, during casual days, and even at the office.  That’s the ClassicSparklers’ trademark: versatility in all aspects.

The dress’ neckline grabbed my attention and I knew I had to start with that.

Also, the client’s wife wanted me to use the garnet gemstone.  I made a rundown in my head if I had enough available in stock. The garnets that I had have a dark, wine red color.  With my 14k gold, they will stand out, yes, but they will look too drab plain.  I had to add something else.

After considering all these, I was finally able to create another beauty:

I used garnet, carnelian and rubellite, thus calling it “Trio Burst”.  They gave good contrast to the garnet while at the same time adding texture because of their difference in size.

Also, I used pyrite for that usual sparkle!

But this would not be a ClassicSparklers piece if it were to be used ONLY for this occasion, right? So I gave it the ability to turn into these other options:

Notice something missing compared to the first photo?

It’s this pendant:

I made this part detachable so that the client’s wife can use it separately with a nice gold chain or a satin ribbon.

But I did not stop there 🙂
