Ringmaker

This selection of photos formed part of a series that was produced for a client wanting a record of their old gold being made into a new ring. The original set are in colour but here I’ve chosen to show them in black and white as I think it helps to give a more timeless feel to the story.

Adding the final detail. The ring was then given a final polish and the white band was rhodium plated.

I hope you like this series, I thought it would be nice to show something a bit different.

All shots were taken on my Fujifilm X10 and processed in Topaz B&W Effects 2 and Lightroom 5.4

Thanks for stopping by.
