Chain Ladder Ear Rings

by John Rasmussen on April 7, 2011

I was reading Art Jewelry magazine last night and they have a project in the current issue for “Chain Ladder” ear rings.  I adapted their design a little and produced my version.  These are made with Calsilica beads with an oriental flavor and sterling silver wire.

While I was working on these, a customer brought over two rubies that were in his grandmother’s estate.  The first is a six ray star ruby weighing 41 carats (highly included and poorly cut) but very interesting.  The second is a 57.1 carat oval faceted stone (highly included and fair cut, good color) that is translucent.  The second is actually quite beautiful.  I forgot to take pictures so you will just have to take my word that I was impressed.
