Unconventional Rose Gold Engagement Rings
When L and I met Maya Selway we loved hearing about how she is inspired by the materials that she works with. She believes that each gemstone has its own individual story and creates the rest of the design to enhance the beauty of the stone.
I can certainly see this within her rose gold engagement rings and in particular in this beautiful design which features a gorgeous cognac diamond. I watched L’s eyes light up at the brilliant bronze depth of the stone, which is perfectly enhanced by the glowing warmth of the rose gold.
Maya creates her own version of perfection with her unconventional metal finishes.
I have seen a fair amount of rose gold engagement rings on our exploration of bespoke jewellery, but none with the amazing finish that Maya has given this design.
Inspired by her observations of metal rusting over time, Maya has resurrected ancient techniques such as gold dusting and fusing to imitate this beautiful organic process. The result is simply staggering and has really ignited a new passion in me for textured metal. L seemed to love the tactile nature the ring took on from this ingenious metal finishing technique.
