"The state of flow happens under
very specific conditions..."


Jeweller Alistair Kelsey created two
beautiful rings for me. I love the
fluidity of both rings and I am thrilled
to see them in real life. The zircon by
Chris Auletta and the tourmaline by
Doug Menadue look fabulous in Alistair
Kelsey's designs.

I discovered Alistair Kelsey because of
the rings he created for PSer Pyramid.
His aesthetic eye is amazing and he is
great to work with. I am amazed by
the quality of his handforged work. His
pricing is super reasonable.

It was already getting dark when I
collected the rings, so I made some
photo's in the train under crappy light.
Will make some photo's under daylight
tomorrow.

Thank you Alistair Kelsey for creating
these stunning rings. Looking forward to
work with you again.

First the glamour pics by Alistair Kelsey:

Some pics I made today in the train. Unfortunately it was already dark and the light in the train was rather awful.
First the Floret design. So amazed by the floral and feminine theme of this design. It has a fluid and robust look at the same time.

The Elegance design in 18kt rose gold by Alistair Kelsey.
Aqua coloured zircon by Chris Auletta.

The detailing of this ring is fabulous: the delicate claw prongs, the flow of the gallery and the subtle knife edge...

Thank you for sharing photos of your new rings Acinom. :appl:
The 18k rose gold is very subtle, do you see a colour difference between this ring and your other rose gold rings?

Love your thoughtful write up and I can't wait to see more of your creations this year.

Thank you lovedogs! I love them even more in person as well. It's really hard to get the curves right in a picture. How are you enjoying your Alistair Kelsey ring now that you have been wearing it for a short while?

Thank you for your kind words Lovinggems! I will review the colour of the rose gold in daylight tomorrow and will then answer your question. I agree that it seems very subtle. In the lighting conditons I could see it this afternoon I really liked the metal colour.

I took these on the (underground) train platform today. So happy with Chris Auletta's stone as well. It's such a stunning blue in real life. When I saw it this afternoon my first thought was 'who needs a Paraiba?' Not in terms of glow but because of the colour with oomph.

acinom both if these rings just ooze elegance. I am so happy to see real pics. The floret is more substantial than I expected with ample gold flowing around the graceful curves. I really like the shank of the elegance ring. It has a lot of subtle movement. Both rings are a really nice size. Great job. Looking forward to more pics!!!!

Oh wow, these are both absolutely stunning. I love the graceful flower outline of the Floret and the classic lines of the Elegance. And the stones are out of this world! These are a gorgeous addition to your collection for sure!!

zircon stone specs (vendor: Chris Auletta)
4.37ct Greenish Zircon
8.88x7.76m
Recut by Dan Stair
Vendor: Chris Auletta

Chris Auletta is such a great vendor to work with. Always happy to share his knowledge and insights. A very charming and professional vendor who makes online stone buying fun. Great customer service!
I was in the process of buying a larger blue zircon (which will also be set by Alistair Kelsey) and decided to buy the greenish one as well. I was mesmerized when I saw it with my own eyes yesterday afternoon. It's such a mesmerizing and Tropical colour.

Arkieb: thank you!! I love it that these rings are made in your beautiful country Arkieb. And indeed, the rings are even more stunning in real life.

Not the settings for me due to the claws/prongs, however, they are lovely, thanks for sharing!

Aww, thank you Sphene, Mochiko & dk 8-)
Sphene: what a huge compliment. Thank you!!!

mochiko: an avalanche of pics is coming up :lol: I read you have been busy with beauties and therefore have postponed your diamond upgrade plans? What stone will you set next?

dk: looking at his portfolio Alistair will be able to make beautiful bezels as well. I am planning to have him create a bezel ring in the future and will keep you updated!!

It's especially hard to capture the colour of the tourmaline as well as the bi-colour effect the stone has. The zircon is easier to capture.
