Textured Cuba Ring in Silver with Black Diamond in 18k Yellow Gold
silver, 18k gold, 1 ct. black diamond
The Cuba Ring was inspired by a trip to Havana, where I bought a really wide silver ring at their antique flea market. It was stamped with Latin patterns and was even wider than the Cuba ring. I wore it around on my trip and thought about how nice it felt and what a nice statement it made. It made me feel fashionable and I loved the feel of the big ring. When we were carving the wax we did the flat version first. When I touched it I thought that the round felt more elegant. We decided to do both because the flat is very architectural and the round is more elegant for two different personalities.
