Jewel of the day: Jeanine Payer Winged Embrace ring
There is no doubt when looking at Jeanine Payer’s pieces that the work has been touched by an artisan, and not machine made. Her work is known more for the engraved poems and sayings she incorporates, and less for the use of stones, but this ring (dubbed Winged Embrace) features a wing and a bezel set round coloured diamond, .85 points. The sterling silver setting lends itself well to the colour of the stone and overall look of the piece.
I could see it being a different kind of engagement ring, or just a very pretty item on its own. Available from Jeanine Payer for USD $1100.
