An 18k yellow gold band with a minimal horizontal setting and a pink marquise diamond, size 6
This delicately-detailed 18k yellow gold band features a one-of-a-kind pink marquise diamond. In choosing this stone, Tura Sugden was inspired by rosy light reflections and the way color is absorbed.
With elliptical shapes and pointed ends, marquise cut gemstones go back to the eighteenth century, when according to legend, King Louis XV commissioned his court jewelers to craft a diamond to match the smile of his mistress. The name marquise itself (feminine form of marquess) associates the diamond with aristocracy, since the term is used in French as a way to describe a hereditary rank between a duke and an earl. With a distinct “Navette” shape, as well as an ample use of colored stones, these “north-south” or “east-west” mounted ring favorites provide a soft feminine feel and often help the fingers appear more slender.
A classically trained fine artist with a BFA in Sculpture, Tura Sugden is a jewelry designer who makes unique and intricate settings that combine recycled gold, ethically sourced diamonds and natural stones. Every piece is produced by hand. As an apprentice, Tura Sugden learned to use a traditional German blowpipe for goldworking, which she still uses today. All of her pieces are inspired by light, shadow and the changing seasons of San Francisco.
