Raw-Cut Cocktail Rings

Posted by Nikki | Thursday August 12, 20108 comments
Brooklyn jewellery designer, Carrie Bilbo, has taken raw-cut stones into the realm of cocktail rings.

The purpose of a cocktail ring is to stand out and create a stir, and Carrie’s design will do just that.  The ring is cone-shaped and comes in either a sterling silver, or 24-karat-gold-plated base. Carrie is using raw-cut sapphires in pink, yellow or blue to top off the rings. They retail for $140 USD.

These rings are perfect if you prefer the rugged “au natural” look, but not for those of you who like to keep it classic.

What do you think? Would you wear this?

These remind me of like a superhero ring or something. They're also really expensive, don't think I'd wear one even if I could afford it.

Maybe she was just paying homage to it?

She has stolen a traditional West African design and claimed it as her own...that is so sad...

It looks bulky and although I think the silver one is quite pretty,I can just tell it would snag and catch on things.Id probley lean more to putting it on a chain and wearing it around my neck as a necklace.

I think I'd prefer to admire it on someone else's hand than on my own. It's a neat idea and would definitely stand out and spur some discussion, but I think the cone shape would feel bulky and the raw cut looks a little too unrefined and organic. Its just not my personal taste.
