The New Zealand native Mt Cook buttercup, aka Mt Cook Lily is the worlds largest buttercup. It only grows in the southern alps of New Zealand and doesn’t flower for very long. It is worth the trip to see, the large delicate blooms seem to glow against the earthy alpine tones.

The centre of the flower is a AAA grade bright yellow 3.75mm sapphire.

I hand engraved the petals surrounding the yellow sapphire with my graver (a hand held cutting tool which uses my strength and control only, so there is no machine involved.)

The top of the sterling silver signet ring measures 13.5mm across.

This ring is a size K

I make many of these rings but they are all different as I engrave each one by eye.

I love engraving with a graver, the process, the simplicity, the skill and the result. You just can’t get that bright sparkle and hand crafted feel with laser cut or cast or roll printing techniques.

Enjoy a rare piece of jewellery that is made with skill and passion.

Please feel free to contact me if you need a different size.

Thank you for your interest in my work,
