I am proud to bring you the second collection of Les Bijoux!
Let us start with the gems themselves. The gemstones have been heat treated with beryllium, which heightens the clarity and colour of the gemstones, and removes inclusions.
I work directly with the owner of a small handmade jewellery business, who took over his father's gemstone business to take it across the world. He travels to source gems from all over, and then processes the gems to get them into their final state. The master cutters and silver smithers have been working with him for years and they are like family.
The Trilogy Ring
Much thought went in to the design of this trilogy ring. I wanted the ring to be traditional and dainty, for those who prefer a classic style. However I still wanted it to be unique and original. As such, we have a classic style of ring, but with non classic stones!! Each stone style is different - with a heart cut amethyst, square ?? pink sapphire, and a trillion cut blue green tourmaline. Each stone is precision cut by master cutters and the size of each gemstone is about 6mm in diameter.
The ring setting has been made entirely by hand. The sterling silver has been shaped and filed, triple polished to ensure a comfortable fit. The ring in its entirety weighs approximately 3 grams.
As each ring will be custom made for YOU, please consider the US sizing chart carefully. If you are unsure of your ring size, you can purchase a ring sizer to determine the correct size for you. Best of all, the cost of the ring sizer will be redeemed with any ring purchase (a code will be emailed to you). Please note that no returns are possible on these rings due to incorrect sizing. Please also understand that the colour of each stone may vary slightly due to different computer screens and also due the normal variation between each stone.
This collection is a PRE-ORDER collection. Please allow approximately one month from pre order close date for your ring to be carefully made just for you.
About Les Bijoux
I grew up spending a lot of time with my nana. Nana would show me her jewellery box with all of her cocktail rings and necklaces. She told me how she smuggled out jewellery sewn in pockets when she escaped her country back in the 70's.
Nana always called her jewellery bijoux, so I thought that was what jewellery was called - bijoux!
My nana is now 88. When I see her she still wears statement rings and a jade bangle, and earrings that sparkle. Always bright.
I don't have much fine jewellery other than my wedding rings and watch. However I have always adored chunky sterling silver jewellery. I've collected statement pieces from various corners of the world, and I love the story and history behind them.
After much research and testing, and working with an excellent team, I have put together Les Bijoux. This collection showcases stunning gemstones that have been hand cut into amazing pieces and set into timeless pieces. There is something for everyone, pieces that can be worn every day or on special occasions.
