About the pictures:
From the Polky Diamond collection, the Rock ring in sterling silver is dotted with polky and brown diamonds, inspired by Superman’s Kryptonite. To keep pricing reasonable, the base of each piece is made of oxidized silver, leaving only the accents made of 18ct gold, pavé set diamonds, polky diamonds and precious stones.
Rhodinated sterling silver earrings are made of sterling silver and set with pavé brown diamonds. The Polky Diamond collection is made as a solution to the ever rising gold prices. To keep pricing reasonable, the base of each piece is made of oxidized silver, leaving only the accents in 18k gold, pavé set diamonds, Polky diamonds, and precious stones.
A flying bird is crafted in this sterling silver ring, pavé-set with brown and Polky diamonds.
