The Central Body of our Solar System. Yellow sapphires set in 18k yellow gold represent the sun's nucleus with diamonds set in 14k white gold signifying the rays.
Designing our diamond constellation jewelry happened in an instant. One evening my father suddenly visualized the stars as diamonds. The next step was assuring accuracy (each diamond is proportional to the magnitude of the corresponding star), and this was achieved with the use of constellation charts. Please do not be concerned by what appears to be an almost nonexistent setting, as this is an important, intricate part of the design (ideally no setting would show). In fact, the settings' triangular shape, almost invisible in the digital pictures, is very strong. Please see the detailed image in the link below showing the back of our Big Dipper.
If you are interested in a constellation that is not offered, please call or email and we can prepare an accurate drawing with a estimate.
