I don't do a lot in men's jewelry, but I think these cufflinks came out well. They are each set with "bullet' cabochon stones, one with garnets and diamonds and the other with Lapis Lazuli . I designed and made the spring backs for them also.

Here is a pretty impressive ring. I made this for a private client a couple of years ago. It has a natural yellow princess cut diamond in the center surrounded by pave set yellow diamonds in yellow gold, the shoulders are natural pink diamonds set in rose gold. The shank is white gold set with white diamonds. A trapezoid diamond is set in each shoulder.

Something a little newer

How about something I've done recently. I just finished these rings last week. They are both 18Kt. gold and set with natural colored diamonds. One is two tone, 18Kt yellow and white set with natural yellow diamond and the other one is all 18Kt. yellow and set with natural pink diamonds. This is not a new idea, by any stretch, but they are still beautiful rings. I think the open work on the inside of the bands lifts them to a higher level. The fact that this can't be seen when they are worn adds to the smug comfort of just knowing it yourself.

Diamond flex bracelet

This is an 18Kt yellow gold bracelet I made some years ago. It was a remount possibility for old tennis bracelets. Difficult but effective piece, The linking mechanism gave the bracelet wonderful flexibility (hence the name) There are about 140 different parts to this bracelet, a little labor intensive.

More Cigar Bands

Here are some more Cigar Bands. They are also Platinum and 18Kt. yellow gold. They are set with diamonds and rubies. The one on the far left with the rubies is my favorite. It was sold, I should make another one.

Platinum and 18Kt. Cigar band

This was the first Cigar Band I made. It was well received as I sold several of them. It is of course, completely hand fabricated in Platinum and 18Kt. yellow gold. It was a lot of fun to make. The band is set with round diamonds. The Platinum background is satin finished.

Crystal sunface earrings

These earrings are from the same time as the harlequin pin. The sunfaces are also carved by Walter Bauscher and the stones set by Vicente Castro. These pieces were made to exhibit at the Tuscon Jewelry Show in Arizona. They are 18Kt. yellow gold set with diamonds and rubies and of course a dangling pearl.

Harlequin pin

This is a Harlequin I made many years ago, actually I made two of them, both sold. The face is rock crystal, carved by Walter Bauscher in New Jersey. The piece is all 18Kt. yellow gold and the mask is paved with diamonds. The diamonds were set by my dear friend Vincente Castro who is now deceased. He was a wonderful diamond setter. I guess this is one of the more dramatic pieces I have made.
