Enthusiastically collected all over this country and abroad, this prolific and versatile artist seemingly can do anything.
You like traditional? You like inlay? You like modern? Stones? Skillful work? You want all that? Look at this amazing ring!
Within its asymmetrical silver framework, this regular prize-winner has inlaid a medley of stones in a creative design, with a modern palette.
The natural stones combine in a masterful design of cool and vibrant hues: beautifully figured turquoise is paired with deep purple sugilite punctuated by black jet.
Turquoise refers to water and sky, traditionally, and these particular stones truly resemble both.
There are areas of cloudless sky blue and lovely markings on others that look like the ocean.
Royal purple sugilite acts as the shadows thrown by bright skies, and the jet accents pull it all together.
Minute lines of silver channels separate the stones and add definition to the design, as well as a brilliantly gleaming contrast.
The shank is plain and polished, tapered to support the stone comfortably. It can be sized somewhat, up or down.
With satin-smooth inlay, an arresting shape, and elegantly striking design, the excellent workmanship is almost unnoticeable.
That’s the mark of a master, and Tommy is certainly that.
We would say the round edge looks best facing the outer side of your hand, but once it is yours, it is up to lucky you!
