Anouk Jewelry was created because Anat was inspired by the treasures of the ancient cultures. We wanted to design jewelry that echoes the timeless beauty of the hammered gold rings of antiquity. The one-of-a-kind nature of the hand made jewelry reflects our own sensibility. We come to create each piece as if it is meant to be a family heirloom, cherished by generations of wearers. Each gemstone we source, is as unique as the handmade design of the ring it is set in.
The ring below is part of our Golden Leaves collection. Inspired by the natural world around us, it features three sculpted leaves in white hammered gold we are known for. We call this texture “Seashore” as it reminds us of the beaches. Often we set our rings with green, teal or blue sapphires, that recall the vast open spaces of the ocean waters. This particular ring is called Blue Sapphire Leaves Prong Solitaire. It is set with a .88 carat blue sapphire, held in place by four leaf-shaped prongs. A delicate cluster of three gold leaves on the side completes the look.
Solitaires are the traditional choice for engagement rings. To make yours as unique and individual as you, consider a colour gemstone as opposed to white diamonds. The best choice for a long lasting stone to wear for a life time, we suggest opting for sapphires. Sapphires are very versatile and come in a rainbow of hues and colours. Below is a selection of our sapphire hammered gold rings. Our favourites are round teal sapphires, oval green sapphires and blue sapphires of any shape. They pair so well with our favourite hammered yellow gold! Together this look reminds us of a beach vacation, enjoying the warm sand, looking out into the cool endless sea. Wearing a green sapphire yellow gold ring is like carrying a seashore with you wherever you go!
Sapphires are a great choice not only for the classic solitaire ring look! They are also well suited for statement rings or bespoke engagement ring. This beauty is a custom design, featuring a roughly cut Montana green sapphire surrounded by sculpted gold nuggets. Its many facets create a unique shimmering surface, guaranteed to be unlike anything other ring out there!
For lovers of a more traditional engagement ring look, we source clear (or white) diamonds. Did you know that the best choice for ethically sourced diamonds are Canadian diamonds? The ring below is our Sun and the Moon ring, set with a 1ct diamond flanked by accent diamonds. Here it is paired with a hammered gold Extra Fine Seashore wedding band. Anouk Jewelry’s Seashore bands come in several sizes, from the Dainty wedding band to Extra Fine, or the more substantial Seashore band. Our Mens’ size Seashore wedding band is available with a straight, or a curved edge for comfort fit.
For additional hammered gold bands, this time without stones, check out our Wedding band collection! The bands come in a variety of widths and finishes. Prefer a little sparkle? Why not set a small diamond – or several – to add that special touch? If plain isn’t your style, check out our Golden Leaves band collection for a nature-inspired band, instead. You are welcome to choose your gold colour (yellow, rose or white), platinum or palladium.
