I am delighted to pay tribute to Julie Day’s talent in jewellery design which displays her creative flair and an individualistic approach to her work.

I am the proud possessor of a particularly lovely sapphire ring with a unique setting that Julie designed for me from blue and yellow Anakie sapphires, purchased by my geologist husband .

We collaborated with Julie, considering her sketches for settings and for fashioning the design for the ring. I noticed that she was interested in the provenance of the gems and in my preferences for coloured stones. Julie also considered how the ring would look on my rather large hand and in my preference for having the main stone set on the diagonal and complemented by the two yellow companion sapphires.

Wearing this ring is a continual source of pleasure and I commend Julie’s work to all interested, prospective clients.
