Not many jewelers can boast about skills like those represented here. This ring gleams with precisely cut angles, appearing as if modern technology could be the only way to attain such accuracy.
The artist is Todd Daniels, who teaches at the GRS Training Center and is a professional engraver and jeweler. This style of setting is called “French cut”. The angled cuts make for an aesthetic that echoes accuracy all while being made by hand.
As a jeweler looking at this work, you may think such a task is out of reach. In the upcoming year, however, Todd will be teaching the new course “Expert Stone Setting” at the GRS Training Center. With this style and many similar high-end styles the focus of his course, students will not turn away empty handed.
