Summertime blues...

With the recent spring wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, it was no surprise to those within the wedding industry that Kate Middleton would influence the nuptial trends for future brides-to-be.

This month, I had a great deal of creative fun fabricating a piece that took a more modern twist to the classic royal sapphire and diamond engagement ring that graced the former Princess Diana, and now Prince William's wife.

Besides the traditional oval sapphire, I added black diamonds in a micro-pave setting and remixed the mood using black gold for this particular fashion forward and edgy woman.
