A young man to watch, this son of established jeweler Lee Charley has learned fine workmanship from his dad, starting in childhood.
His extroverted sense of design is his own.
Here, he combines his liking for exuberant color with a traditional style, setting 28 separate little rounds of varied stones.
Two kinds of turquoise, red coral and purple spiny oyster shell – all traditional stones – take on a surprisingly modern allure when combined together.
Deeply stamped and cut-out scallops surround the constellation of vivid color.
The stamping continues all around the shank of the ring, as well. The background is darkened, for contrast.
A handsome ring with retro vibes, that makes a modern statement – and doesn’t empty the wallet.
