This ring is the product of two great mysteries. The body is made of Damascus Steel, the legendary triumph of metallurgy whose recipe was thought lost to time, its characteristic wood-like grain becoming only mythic. We’ve offset our Damascus steel with black diamonds, the inky, mysterious gems that evoke the great 200-carat Eye of Brahma, the famous black diamond of India, itself a source of legend and lore. This ring is for the man that can handle the weight of those mysteries, the gravitas they carry. The man who knows he will draw questions, and whose answers he holds close to the vest.
The thinness of the wood inlay creates a sleek, streamlined look. It’s subtle in comparison to her engagement ring, allows the diamonds of the latter to appear larger and brighter. It goes with nearly every wood and nearly every style of ring, feels at home in every wedding. It’s comfortable on the beach at sunset, in a springtime field, in the ballroom during cocktail hour. An all-around fine choice for a woman who values simple design, straightforward appeal.
The dark, thin streak of Koa brings the white gold to life. In the intimately-lit speakeasy where the reception is held, this ring draws the eye from across the room. Stacking perfectly with any of our redwoods, whether white gold or platinum setting, this ring outshines its environs. In the ballroom after the ceremony, at the bar, it glows like a heavenly beacon, and in the sun it gathers all the light it can and reflects it outwards, multiplied.
You won’t find the rare pink topaz sitting in your backyard. We found this one deep in a eucalyptus forest, where the sunlight filtered through the needles to illuminate little dandelion tufts drifting on the breeze. Where the ambient sound wasn’t cars or busses or people, but squirrels ferrying nuts down the trunks in the late fall air. And there, sitting on a rock, the glistening pink topaz ring, complete with its eucalyptus wood inlay, and resting beside it, your siren.
