Designs for Fine Jewelry Pieces

Thursday, September 18th, 2008

Fine jewelry is created from the finest precious metals and the gems that are set in these metals could be what makes the jewelry so fine. Jewelry lovers can wear precious gems like sapphire, emeralds, diamonds, rubies, and birthstone gems in a variety of ways, but no matter what the designs are, the wearer will know that quality of workmanship is what makes wearing the fine jewelry so special. Colored gemstones could become the focal point of some fine jewelry designs. The designer could lavish three matching colored stones in a row and name it an anniversary ring. Other anniversary ring designs could place three diamonds in a row, and the semblance of wealth and happiness could shine through every time it is worn. Fine jewelry designs for children might use gemstones as a place mark to remember a birthday and parents might add smaller gems to signify later years.

Some fashion designers create fine jewelry to signify eternal love. The shaping used in their designs could be circular, or a simple diamond pendant that is going solo. A clever designer will be able to bring new life to older pieces of jewelry and turn fine jewelry that has seen better days into a work of art that will be a joy to wear. Some vintage jewelry settings can be invigorating to wear again by the simple introduction of a different colored gem. Many fine jewelry designers will use sapphires in place of rubies, or emeralds in place of diamonds for a totally different look in the exquisite piece that is produced. With a modification to a jewelry piece, what was once worn as a ring could become a pendant for wear around the neck. Designers can be very creative when molding platinum, gold, and sometimes silver or titanium. Some fashion jewelry designers will have new inspirations and choose to intertwine the two together to give fine jewelry pieces a refined and polished look that was not present before.
