Spinning a Web

Turn ordinary jewelry into intricate works of art

Wide-open links fashioned after lattices or spider webs create a big look using less metal and fewer and smaller diamonds. The open-work patterns lend a retro look while keeping prices reasonable – a plus in times of economic downturn. Designers create a feeling of intrigue, entrapment and architectural structure within the walls of these designs while always keeping the diamond the focus.
