The couple that these were designed for wanted something unique and interesting but subtle. They knew that they wanted palladium, and also knew that they both really liked a brushed finish. We came up with a slow-weave braid pattern that repeats only five times around the circumference of each ring.
We gave the braid a satin finish, but the challenge with a such a finish is that over time it will polish to a shine as the wearer rubs the ring against clothing and objects through daily wear. To avoid this, we recessed the braid and pre-polished the outer rails to provide contrast and longevity for the design.
