Irish fine jewellers McCaul Goldsmiths are renowned for creating elegant jewellery that accentuates the curves and contours of the body.
Their exquisite range of cocktail rings is no exception. Hand-forged pieces which encase or meander around the fingers, colourful, exceptional gemstones which inspire unique creations and fluid, sweeping lines are the hallmark of their striking new designs.
Highlights include the Carved 18 carat rose gold ring with green tourmaline and white diamonds. This sculptural rose gold cocktail ring has been hand carved to fit the gemstone making it a one-of-a-kind piece. The rightly polished surface beneath the green tourmaline highlight its colour and contrast with the sleek, satin outer surface of the ring. The green tourmaline is surrounded by a wide rose gold bezel. Two white diamonds set into the bezel provide a bit of sparkle.
Or choose the 18 carat forged gold pave diamond ring. The dramatic loops of this yellow gold and diamond cocktail ring are accentuated with a line of sparkling white diamonds. Designed with consideration for balance and proportion, the playful looping form of the ring sits perfectly on the hand. This yellow gold and diamond cocktail ring is hand-forged from 18 carat gold bar and pave set with tapering lines of white diamonds.
The 18 carat gold Marquise green garnet and diamond ring has an unusual setting to complement and showcase this outstanding stone. The angular forms of the setting were designed to emphasise the marquise cut of the green garnet and are echoed in the triangle of pave set white diamonds across one shoulder of the ring. Yellow gold enhances the rich colour of the stone and contrasts with the white diamonds.
McCaul’s cocktail rings are wholly designed and made within their London atelier. They use both traditional and modern goldsmithing techniques to create their long lasting, contemporary jewellery pieces. As classically trained goldsmiths, their style and forms are heavily influenced by technique and the properties of the precious metals and gems they work with.
