The terms ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ are not the first descriptive words that come to mind when thinking of engagement rings. Adjectives such as brilliant, luxurious, lustrous and highly polished more readily epitomize the elegance of a bespoke engagement ring. Designers though, are not limited by the expected, and they are always on the look out to expand and develop their skills. The ability to make a ring look as though it has grown and developed to create a natural beauty and where the metals and gemstones retain the power of their natural elements takes great expertise.
Letting the inherent beauty shine through
When a woman is so well made up that she does not look as though she is wearing any make-up, her natural beauty is allowed to shine through. This is a mark of a talented and competent make-up artist. Bespoke engagement ring designers who choose to create organic rings allow the raw materials that they work with to show where they have come from. The gold reflects the earth it has been mined from and, depending on the designer, the ring might have a wonderful curvature reminiscent of rocks or plants or be less highly polished.
Unique and Quirky
If your partner likes something out of the ordinary, then organic jewellery might be worth considering. With matt gold and rough diamonds, or other rough-cut gemstones, these rings are certainly different from the brilliance and fire of a polished diamond bespoke engagement ring. Designers make these organic rings look homemade but, in fact, a lot of skill has gone into the design and simple structures of the rings. Simplicity does not always mean that there has not been a great deal of thought and work; often to make a ring look natural requires extra time and effort.
Modern but timeless
The organic nature of the designs and the influences of nature, such as the sea and waves, sand and rocks, create rings that are contemporary but have the feel and sense of history. Organic bespoke engagement ring designers fashion out of the raw materials of gold, diamonds, emeralds, rubies and sapphires pieces that feel as though they have travelled from the ancient world of Greece or Rome. They have that simplicity and look much older than they are, containing epochs of history in their designs. Some have a real medieval aesthetic, a time when artisans were highly respected and made wonderful pieces of jewellery that now we can only see in museums. The rings are steeped in the history of how artists can take the materials all around us and create something new.
So if you want an engagement ring that is going to make a bold statement and stand out from the crowd in a gentle but glowing way, then going organic could be for you.
