Less is definitely more when this jeweler wields his minimalist magic.
Long recognized as prize-winning painter, carver, teacher, community activist, as well as jeweler, he loves to find top-notch stones and set them as simply as possible, to keep attention on the stone.
Here, he wraps plain, unembellished sterling around an imposing, organic shape of exotic, lush, natural charoite.
Beloved by the czars of Russia, and like marble, used in architectural settings, this delicious, swirling lilac stone is now a favorite for Native jewelry – when available.
The silver bezel serves merely to support the stone without distraction.
The shank of the ring is chiseled on one side of the stone and stamped on the other, continuing the let-the stone-shine style.
Classic, and beautifully made, this lovely ring is another timeless future heirloom from an early student of the legendary Charles Loloma, who learned his lessons very well.
