Gold Set Tooth

One for the macabre lovers amongst us!. I was asked to set this molar into a gold setting for a man. As my regular customers may know, I’m quite fascinated by Victorian jewellery and love how they made quite dark and macabre objects into beautiful pieces. Most would agree that teeth aren’t that pretty but turn them upside down and there’s something very ‘sea life creature’ about them.¬†This particular tooth had rather beautiful roots that reminded me of coral and so I worked¬†the design and setting to their advantage giving it a sea creature feel. My aim was that at first glance, one wouldn’t know what the piece originally was.
