18th Birthday Family Heirloom

I made this ring for my eldest daughter’s 18th birthday.

The beautifully cut citrine came from a broken antique bracelet that had belonged to Grace’s great, great grandmother and fortunately, I was able to incorporate the original basket setting into the design. The feature gold balls were melted down from pieces left after remodelling my mum and dad’s wedding rings.

Could there be a better way to celebrate the next generation’s landmark birthdays than to create a new heirloom piece?
