The perfect alternate men’s wedding ring.
Some people want a wedding ring that is a little different to the others and these Damascus rings by Luke Grant are a great example. This Damascus is actually surgical grade stainless steel which he purchases in a billet (log) and then slices off a piece to turn on his lathe to get the final ring. He can add texture with his grinder, shape the ring flat or half round, change the pattern depending upon if he cuts a vertical or horizontal slice and acid etches them to bring out the pattern. The perfect alternate men’s wedding ring.
Turning coins into rings
One of the coolest jewellery techniques is making a ring out of an old coin. The technique is pretty cool as you take curved lettering and with the magic of jewellery making make it straight. It’s a bit of a mind f**k about how its done but this process shot by William the Jewellery helps explain it better in a visual way.
It’s always hard to find an Australian gift that isn’t tacky or on the kitsch side of Australiana…………….until now! These Bushprint cufflinks in sterling silver feature the footprints of many of our native animals including the Emu, Koala, Dingo, Wombat, Crocodile, Frillneck Lizard, Quoll, Tassie Devil, Green Turtle, Possum, Little Penguin and Wedgetail Eagle.
Titanium ring variations
I’m not always a fan of thumb rings but when I first introduced to the range of etched rings by Alison Raven my view went out the window. Alison’s range of rings, including the Forest, Intersection, Swirl, Puddles and Cobwebs are thin and light enough to make wearing a thumb ring a pleasure.
Wedding Cake rings
Is it just me or do these top three Burnside rings by Gary Barnes look like wedding cakes?
Tigers Eye signet
One of our most popular signets rings is this Sebastian Cilento is called the Fokker and features a Tigers Eye Stone. The Tiger’s eye is a chatoyant gemstone that is usually a metamorphic rock with a golden to red-brown colour, has a silky lustre and no two two stones are the same which makes every ring unique.
Hot in Melbourne
It’s pretty hot in Melbourne today and although we only have a portable airconditioner we’re planning to be open all day so pop on in but we do have one comment to make:
When you walk into the shop don’t say “Gee, It’s hot in here today” as we already know that and you’ll probably be the 10th person to say the same thing! Just relax, you won’t pass out, we have water if you need to be hydrated during your visit and just enjoy the wonderful range of handcrafted jewellery for men and women.
