You may not wear your heart on your sleeve, but you will certainly want to wear the sun on your finger, when it is such a beautiful statement. This exceptional jeweler has developed her own, award-winning style that is quite different from the jewelry her parents were known for. The characteristic combination of antiqued and textured silver, plus accents of 18-karat gold, is beautifully displayed here.
Precisely formed and detailed, this Sunface remains delicate, despite the rugged texture and antiqued finish of the silver. One band across the forehead is highly polished to stand out, literally and figuratively, both. This gleaming accent is echoed in the round sun of 18-karat gold to one side.
The design seems straightforward and simple, but is quite refined and balanced. A succession of circles, starts with the notched outer piece, then moves to the slightly convex Sunface, the round, domed coral, and the circular gold sun symbol. It is a perfect composition, since the straight line of the eyes is repeated in the shiny silver band above them, and the subtle, vertical line down the center of the face, as well. Even the shank is completely integrated with the face: notched, with an overlaid band of textured silver, centered with a dome-let of gold at the back.
A beautiful design of an iconic symbol of warmth and blessing.
