Custom made wedding ring from Maidstone Jewelry

David (the jewelry designer of Maidstone Jewelry) and Maria married in 2005. Their wedding rings had special significance to each of them.







Maria's ring consists of 4 strong 18K wire rings held in place by twisted sterling silver wires each representing a union of two. There are 4 gold and 4 silver wires and the marriage of metals represents a solid bond between two different elements.



David's ring was made with an antique nail from the beams of a Swiss alp barn built in 1833. The blackened iron was forged into a ring shape, the interior inlaid with 18K gold. At the head of the nail is a gold bezel housing a black diamond. The ring is made with materials that have survived for centuries and thus symbolizes an enduring relationship.




Maidstone Jewelry is about the beauty of the beach stones, that are at the core of our collection. We find our stones on the beaches of East Hampton. They inspire us and lead to new ideas. Between the land and the ocean there is a constant dance. It takes thousands of years for nature to patiently craft every stone at our feet.  With wonder and respect we work to highlight and display the qualities of the stones we choose.

David Posnett has been studying jewelry, gold and silver smithing at The 92nd Street Y in New York with Honey Jeanne Laber, Klaus Buergel and Jonathan Wahl since 2001. He is a member of the East End Arts Council and the South Fork Craftsmen's Guild.
