The Sea Range

The Sea Range , 

I have a number of ring designs for sale that are based around my love of the sea and are inspired by many family holiday trips to St Ives in Cornwall .

I often get inspiration for my ring ideas from walking along one of the best beaches, which is just around the headland from Carbis bay – at Lelant Beach.

This is the beautiful beach that you can see from the train as you come into St Ives, and it’s one of my favourite train rides.

This ring was inspired by me standing on a rock with the sea swirling around my feet .

This ring was set with a beautiful ruby and three G/VS diamonds for a

ruby wedding anniversary.

Available in any precious metal.  Estimates are based on your choices of metal and stones.

This design looks very good with a sapphire set in it to represent the Sea and diamonds for the sparkle on the water.
