This strikingly beautiful ruby heart ring, made ethically with Fairtrade Gold, is an artisanal piece that tells a story. She would work perfectly as an alternative ethical engagement ring.
Created from a nugget of gold that has been hand rolled flat before having stamped lines added with a ruby set at the centre. Belle is inspired by my trip to New Mexico and is part of my Arroyo Seco (dry river) collection.
Each ring is slightly different according to the shape it takes from rolling the gold.
The diamond heart measures 4.8 x 4.8 approx and weighs 0.25 carats. The band is a narrow width 1.5mm band that has been hammered and some lines have been stamped around the heart to create texture.
Made with Fairtrade gold from the MACDESA mining community in Peru, which ensures it miners are paid a fair wage with an added 10% premium to build schools and other things that benefit the whole community.
£10.00 from the sale of this ring will be donated to the Orangutan Foundation.
