This gorgeous ring proves that jewelry does not have to be cut and polished to perfection in order to stop you in your tracks. In fact, it is precisely the rough-hewn, wabi-sabi aesthetic that this ring exudes that makes it so stunning. A gorgeous rough cut blue sapphire (about 6 millimeters in diameter) forms the centerpiece of this ring, encased in a delicate claw of mixed 14 and 18 karat yellow and white gold. The 2 millimeter wide band is an alchemical wonder, formed from an alloy of oxidized sterling silver, yellow and white gold. The alternating hues of blackened silver, bright white and warm yellow orchestrate a fascinating play of light across the uneven surface of this ring.

Variance Objects is a jewelry line that embraces and celebrates the natural beauty of raw materials. Santa Cruz designer Nicole Rimedio has a passion for sourcing the most unusual rough gemstones and mineral specimens. Her organic metalwork is designed to showcase the unique features of the stones. Rimedio works in oxidized sterling silver, yellow, rose and white gold, which she combines to form multi-hued and fascinatingly textured alloys.
