Jewellery Designer Andrew Geoghegan Launches a Stunning New Range Of Cocktail Rings
Award-winning jewellery designer, Andrew Geoghegan has launched four stunning new cocktail rings in the last week, including a third addition to the incredible ‘Chocolate Box’ collection.
The Chocolate Box Envy
This piece really does show how unique and perfectly made the AG collection is. The first Chocolate Box with a clash of colours has been Highly Commended by Claire Adler in the IJL 2012 Edit Awards. The Gems in the piece are all different shades of Green Tourmaline with a delightful framing of diamonds. The Chocolate Box Rose with rubellites and pink sapphire was launched in August and AG believes this design will be recognised as a design classic.
AG’s most popular right hand ring with a new cut. This ring is resplendent with a marquis Morganite and framed with diamonds. The cut of the Morganite is echoed in the satellite diamond. An incredible dynamic piece.
Fission Cluster Spinel
The Fission Cluster ring has been hugely successful for AG and has graced many fingers in the form of brilliant, asscher and radiant cuts. The Oval was next on the list and Andrew sourced a stunning lilac Spinel for the occasion. Framed with diamonds and set in 18ct white gold, the beautiful result has inspired Andrew to create two more versions in princess and cushion cut.
Andrew Geoghegan’s aim was to create a ring in which the stone is set slightly lower than conventional rings and in this way one must ‘look into’ the setting. By creating this ‘space’ or ‘hollow’ in which light is reflected from diamond to zircon there is a feeling of peering into a box of treasures! The name ‘Reflect’ is perfect for two reason; as already alluded to, the internal diamonds are reflected in the main stone and, the term reflect can be attributed to the occasion for which the ring is bought for – reflecting on a memory. One of the intriguing aspects of the piece is the wizardry of stone setting; creating an internal surface of diamond setting above the main stone is no easy task however the effect is unique and exquisite
