Sterling silver 'Caravanserai' ring with yellow gold plate and sapphires - available on online store
Sterling silver Caravanserai ring with yellow gold plate set with 7 natural sapphires and hand engraving of feather motif around rim of ring.
The top of the ring is around 16mm round.
It has a deliberate 'cap' style top referencing tents/dwelling places. The stones are all different colours and sizes, reflecting trade and people.
The word caravanserai means:
A caravanserai was a roadside inn where travelers could rest and recover from the day's journey. In the Middle-East, it is often called by its Persian name khan, (خان). Caravanserais supported the flow of commerce, information, and people across the network of trade routes covering Asia, North Africa, and southeastern Europe, especially along the Silk Road.
This ring is a 'one off'.
The sapphires also are unique and are difficult to match.
These sapphires fall under the category 'Fancy' sapphires as they are individual colours as they are natural, not colour enhanced to reach specific hues.
I am happy to make to order this ring using different combinations of stones as well as to size.
With wear, the yellow gold plating may wear back to the sterling silver in places which is something I hope for!
This ring is only available on my online store: http://katherinebowman.bigcartel.com. There is only one of this ring!
9ct white gold Lucky ring set with champagne diamonds.

I have just released a new range of rings and earrings onto my online store:
This range is exclusive to my store.
The rings which form this group are intentionally heavy, so that their presence is felt when worn. Like amulets and talismans, constant awareness increases experience of the piece.
Details of each piece are listed on the shop.
I am more than happy to custom make new work based on these pieces, or make to size.
New work will be added over the next couple of days.
Each jewellery item is a 'one off', I do not have multiples of each, I will make a new one as one sells.
The images here have been put together by Subhadra Mistry who did an internship with me during the year.
She has used images taken by Marli Scott to sit with the individual jewellery pieces.
The landscape photos were taken in the United Kingdom.

I designed this ring to be worn on it's own or to wear with a ring such as my 'Large Pledge' ring or 'to Hold' ring.
I had a problem with fitted wedders as I like for the two rings to have their own identity, as they often represent two different occasions, not one locked whole, so this is what I came up with.

It is difficult sourcing these larger natural stones. When I saw these stones I brought them straight away.
These earrings are one of a kind and are at e.g.etal.
