Ruby Fruits of Disa’s Kenyan Travels!

Category: bespoke

Disa Allsopp has always travelled a lot, growing up in Barbados with adventurous parents. She visits Kenya on a regular basis as inspiration and sourcing expeditions. This winter she visited one of her suppliers with direct links to the mine where this cabouchon ruby was discovered and cut.

This deep pink ruby is set simply in an 18k yellow gold rub-over setting with an open back to allow as much light play as possible. Poised on one of Disa’s signature organic texture bands this ring is all about show casing this unique stone in all its glory.

Enjoy the warmth and depth of colour as we head in to this fresh March weekend! To find out more about it email disa.allsopp@gmail.com or get in touch through the contact page.

 

When Disa saw this Rhodolite Garnet on a stone sourcing trip to Kenya she fell in love with its warm flashes of raspberry, fuschia and scarlet. Beautifully cut to reflect and refract light, Disa has framed it in a tapered 18k yellow gold rubover setting. Sitting on one of her signature organic texture 18k gold bands this ring would make a fabulous engagement ring, or a meaningful gift for an anniversary or birthday.

Disa has been working with the online shopping experience 1st Dibs for a year now. 1st Dibs showcases high end design and provides a platform for independent designers and boutiques around the world. Have a look at the site if in need of anything from furniture to fashion.

Commissioning an item of jewellery can be a daunting process, either if starting out from scratch or reworking a pre-loved piece. Not so a commission by Disa Allsopp!

Disa has years of experience working with clients to create a piece unique them. The process most often begins with a visit to Disa in her London studio to discuss the options. Often, from looking at her current collections, a decision can be made about the design in this initial meeting.

If more time is needed to develop the design, this is the point measurements are taken, ideas are discussed and from there Disa can source stones, create mock ups, sketch out ideas, whatever is needed to move the process on.

Testimonials from past clients describe commissioning bespoke work from Disa as ‘revitalisation by a brilliant designer’, and creating work that becomes ‘unquestionably my favourite piece of jewellery’.

Below a recent commissioned piece, 18k yellow reticulated gold, with three aquamarines flush set in to the chunky band. Disa loved making this piece, saying ‘The textures in this ring frame the watery aquamarines beautifully. The client just loved it, and I enjoyed working on such a substantial ring.’
