The Alhambra design is inspired by the palaces of Alhambra in the Andalusia region of Spain. The craftsmen aspired to create "paradise on earth" with intricate carvings that despite centuries of neglect are still the most exquisite examples of Moorish art in all of Spain. Moorish poets described the Citadel as "a pearl set in emeralds," an allusion to the color of its marble buildings and the woods around them.
This design flows around the finger and has several different looks depending on which part of the ring is visible. The rich ornamentation is deeply carved and will last a lifetime.
The intricate details run around the entire band. It is solidly crafted in your choice of 14KT white, yellow or rose gold or .925 sterling silver. I can also make this in 10KT, 18KT or 22KT gold, platinum, palladium, or most other metals. Please contact us for a quote.
Each ring is individually carved and crafted to your size. Many jewelers duplicate their original models with rubber molds, but you just don't get the same crisp detail in a mass produced copy. All of my rings are created from a first generation wax model. This ring is heavy enough to stand the test of time.
To create your individually handcrafted piece, our current workload requires approximately four weeks from the date of order to the date of shipping. If you need your piece sooner, please contact us to see if we can accommodate your request at no extra charge. Customized pieces may take longer. Please contact us for an ETA.
DETERMINING YOUR CORRECT RING SIZE
For the long-term enjoyment of your ring, it is essential it fit well. It's generally best to have a local jeweler size your finger. Most will have narrow and wide ring sizing sets. Use whichever is appropriate for the ring you are ordering. Wide rings may require a slightly larger size.
I DON’T SEE MY SIZE IN THE DROP-DOWNS
If your size is less than 4 or greater than 14, or if you need a quarter size, please let us know. We will be more than happy to work with you.
Because every ring is one of a kind, we have the flexibility to make this design slightly wider or narrower depending on your preference. Want diamonds or two-tone? Glad to oblige. Different gems, both natural and lab-grown, as well as various metals are available. Although this site primarily shows 14KT White Gold, yellow and rose gold, as well as .925 sterling silver, we can also make pieces in 10KT or 18KT gold, platinum, palladium, or most other metals.
