The precise blending of exotic colored inlays mean Randy’s inlays complement without overwhelming the focal point. Sweeping organic curves and whimsical geometric shapes prove that jewelry doesn’t have to sacrifice elegance for light-heartedness. he sculptural simplicity of Randy’s ground breaking creations transcend the concept of fine jewelry and becomes a work of modern art. The brilliance of Randy’s choice of center stones is only matched by the quality of diamonds that complement them, for an unparalleled combination of luster and sparkle.

Caged Fire, finalist in the 2013 Saul Bell Design Awards This original design by Greg Neeley is made from solid18k rose and 18k white gold. It contains five diamonds. The center stone is 2.23 carats with four diamonds weighing 1.01 carats total set around the center diamond. Caged Fire is for sale and on display at Elinoff and Co. Gallery.
This 14k yellow and 14k white gold ladies ring contains one 8×10 mm oval red zircon weighing 4. 85 carats and 27 1.8mm princess cut diamonds weighing 1.06 carats total. The ring is lost wax cast and soldered together. The shank in 18k white gold will be cast with a break in the bottom center, the princess cut diamonds will be channel set and the yellow gold plates soldered into place. The break in the bottom center will allow the channels for the zircon to be sprung open enough to tension set the zircon then the bottom of the shank will be welded and the ring rounded locking the zircon in place.
This ring has a ‘bracket set’ marquis diamond floating over a white gold band set with pave’ diamonds. There is a diamond in the center of each side of the ring. The total weight of 48 small diamonds is a little over 1/2 carat, and the center stone is a one carat marquis. This is a very safe design that looks very dangerous. The marquis diamond points are bare but it would be very difficult to touch the points with anything but a very small probe.
Indian Princess is an 18k yellow gold ladies ring containing 4 princess cut diamonds 1 carat each. It is made with the highest quality spider web turquoise that is inlaid all the way through the ring so you can see it from the inside. The vertical side of the ring is decorated in a Hopi Indian design and contains one .10 carat fine diamond. This ring is not for everyone and is one of the most difficult to craft that Greg Neeley has ever designed.
The center diamond is 1.00 carat GIA certified round brilliant. It is very well cut graded at color G clarity VS 1. The accent diamonds weight a total of .25 carats and are of top quality. The ring is made of solid 18 karat yellow and white gold. It can also be ordered in all white gold as well. This is a very elegant ring that brings a little Italian flare to one of Greg Neeley‘s ring forms.
This solid 18k Yellow and White Gold Men’s ring contains 17 high quality round diamonds weighing 1/5th carat total. The ring weighs over 2/3 ounce of solid gold. It is a very heavy and regal design. This is the latest in Greg Neeley‘s Medieval Knight Collection.
This ring is sterling silver and 18 Karat yellow gold with a beautiful spider web Carico lake stone. The Carico lake turquoise is 16 mm by 13 mm about 3/4inch by 1/2 inch. The turquoise weighs13 carats and is re-enforced with backing. The stone is completely natural with no treatment. One of the amazing aspects of this stone is the matrix or brown lines. Many times these lines are of a softer material and tend to degrade and pit during polishing. This stones matrix is crystalline like the rest of the turquoise stone, very rare in natural turquoise. Greg Neeley collected this stone in the late 1970’s when he was a turquoise stone buyer for an Indian jewelry manufacturer here in Colorado. The ring can be made to any size from 7 to 13 for the same price.
This ring is made of 14k yellow and white gold and holds a 2.3 carat natural aquamarine oval center stone suspension set in a 14k yellow gold wrap around ring with a 14k white gold swirl encompassing the entire ring top. There are 23 diamonds set in the swirl weighing a total of 1/4 carat. This is a simple but elegant and comfortable ring.
This ring is made of 14k white gold 3 carat natural aquamarine oval center stone suspension set in a 14k white gold wrap around ring with a 14k white gold bar running through the entire ring top. There are 5 diamonds set in the bar weighing a total of 1/10 carat. This is a simple but elegant and comfortable ring.
The ring is made of solid 18k gold. the black metal is 18k white gold with a layer of black rhodium over it. Rhodium is a form of platinum. It is very durable and just about the same price as platinum. There are 52 round melee diamonds in the ring and one 3/4 carat marquis. The total diamond weight is 1.61 carats. The Marquis is FLOATING in side brackets with the points bare. This gives the design a very dangerous look but the stone is protected by the sides of the ring and it would be very difficult to damage the stone. The brackets holding the stone are riveted on and all these rivets are real rivets.
Every gemstone has a story, a story of how it was formed, how it was found, how rare it is, how durable, how it is cut, how we found it, and most of all how beautiful it is. Greg Neeley respectS this story just as he respect your story of who you are, what you like, and where you are going. Greg Neeley strives to design and make jewelry that employs his forty years in art, design, and jewelry making to honor your story and the gems story

Diamond connoisseurs spend millions on yellow diamonds as they are some of the most stunning gemstones available. If you love yellow diamonds, you’re not alone.
From actresses on the red carpet to the stylish women worldwide, yellow diamond jewelry is trending and it’s easy to see why: yellow diamonds are as bright as the sun and a classic alternative to white diamonds.
Color is the most important characteristic when selecting a natural yellow diamond. The deeper the color, the more rare, and therefore more expensive. Deeper colored yellow diamonds are sometimes called canary diamonds.
A yellow diamond will usually have an undertone that is one of two colors. The first is an orangey color that gives the diamond a warm or golden color. The second is a greenish color that gives the diamond a cool or lemony color. Neither undertone color is more valuable; it is a personal preference.
Yellow diamonds are cut to maximize their color, while white diamonds are cut to maximize their brilliance. The most brilliant cut is a round, and therefore most white diamonds are cut in a round shape. But the round shape usually lessens the amount of color in a yellow diamond, so you’ll find fewer of them. Square types of cuts maximize a diamond’s color, so you’ll find a larger percentage of these.
Prices of white diamonds are based upon a larger supply and very active trading,. Yellow diamonds are much rarer, and not able to be compared in the same way. The rule of thumb is the deeper the color, the higher the price. Very yellow natural diamonds, known as vivid yellow diamonds, can fetch prices that greatly exceed prices of white diamonds. On the other hand, light yellow diamonds are less than white diamonds.
Unforgettable and vibrant, colored diamonds have been a focus of many unforgettable designs. Here we share a few yellow diamond engagement ring designs.

The baguette cut is named due to its long, rectangular shape after the French word baguette, for “long rod”, coming down from the Latin baculum, meaning “a stick”. This cut came out of the 1920s and 1930s, as a fashion reaction to the functionality and geometric form preferred in design and architecture of the time, such as the Bauhaus movement. Used primarily as a side stone, the baguette cut shape is a step cut diamond that is similar to other square to rectangular shaped step cuts, such as the emerald cut.
The baguette cut shape came to the fore during the early 20th century Art Deco and Art Nouveau movements. Originally used primarily in costume jewelry, the simple rectangular to square shape worked well with the art movements that came to dominate the culture of western society at the time. The straight, clean lines, and simple geometric form of the baguette cut, along with its ideal use as an accent stone, inspired jewelers at the time to create jewelry pieces that would utilize numerous baguette cut stones.
World Class Certified 5.96 Carat VVS1-SI2 Clarity Natural UNTREATED Diamond & 18k White Gold “Knuckle” Cocktail Ring. This one of a kind estate ring features 315 BIG round brilliant & baguette diamonds with colorless and near colorless F-G color, master cutting and tremendous electric sparking fire. The setting is a solid 18k white gold beauty with all of the earmarks of the hand of a true jewelry master craftsman.
The Baguette Shape is different to the other shapes in that it is not a stand alone diamond, and would never take center stage in a solitaire ring or pendant. It is a like a loyal servant, standing to the side and quietly providing support, accent and grandeur to the central stone, filling in with its understated sparkle to maintain a diamond look throughout.
The use of baguette cut diamonds is less when compared to that of round diamonds. However, these diamonds have found a place in the jewelry market as they are a lot cheaper than the round and emerald cut diamonds. The baguette cut diamonds are rectangular and have step cuts similar to that of the emerald cut. This cut generally will have 24 facets and the parallel facets are arranged to look like a terrace. It is possible to find smaller carat weights of baguette cut diamonds when compared to the other cuts and therefore the cost factor is generally low.
The brilliance of baguette cut diamonds is less when compared to the round diamond and therefore any difference in color will be more prominent when compared to other cuts. Lower color grade stones will have a yellow tint and therefore it is a good option to pick stones that have a near colorless grade.
The lack of brilliance will have a prominent effect on the clarity of the stone. Inclusions and flaws in the diamond will be visible more in these diamonds when compared to diamonds of other cuts. It is therefore better to buy baguette cut diamonds that have a high clarity grade.
Baguette cut diamonds are usually bought for their luster and not for their brilliance or sparkle. These stones are commonly used as diamond accents or side stones. If you are using these stones as side stones, ensure that you match the color of the center diamond with these stones, to not compromise on the look for the jewelry.
The Gorgeous Orange Sapphire owes its color to the additional trace elements of chromium and iron in its formation, and ranges in hue from pale orange to a vivid reddish-orange, or a deep orange with brownish overtones. Though once considered an obscure and underestimated gem, it has recently gained in popularity for its rarity and beautiful fashion color. Orange Sapphires are not mined in great quantities, so even stones with slight to moderate inclusions are still valuable gems.

In antiquity, Diamonds and Rubies were divided by the Hindus into four castes, or classes, and being a Corundum of unique reddish hue, Padparadscha was called the Oriental Ruby, a Brahmin of the highest caste. The possession of a padmaraga, or Brahmin Ruby, conferred perfect safety upon the owner, and as long as he owned this precious stone he could dwell without fear in the midst of enenmies and was shielded from bad fortune. However, great care had to be taken to keep this Ruby of the first class from contact with inferior specimens, as its virtue would be contaminated and its power for good diminished accordingly.
Though many of the Sapphires were appropriated by other names and little is written concerning them, they were well-known and highly valued in the ancient world, used by the Etruscans over 2,500 years ago and prized in ancient Rome, Greece and Egypt. The term “Sapphire” with no color prefix attached to it refers to the Blue Sapphire and has an extensive history of legends and lore, much of which appears on our Blue Sapphire page. Other colors of Sapphire were called the same name as a popular gemstone of that color with the term “Oriental” added, thus the Oriental Amethyst was actually a Violet Sapphire, the Oriental Emerald was a Green Sapphire, and an Oriental Topaz was a Yellow Sapphire. Padparadscha was an Oriental Ruby, while Pink Sapphire was a Ruby that had not yet “ripened.” Others may simply have been mistaken for another mineral or were discovered too recently to have historical reference.
Padparadscha Sapphire, sometimes called Orange Sapphire, is a gem variety of Corundum with a unique salmon hue that ranges from a very pale pinkish-orange to a more vibrant orange with pink overtones. For decades collectors, dealers and gemologists have debated the issue of how pink or orange a stone in this category can be and whether some stones are too dark to qualify to be a Padparadscha. To date there is no agreeable standard for the color range. The name is derived from the Sanskrit/Sinhalese padma raga, meaning “Lotus color” and refers to the orange/pink color, similar to the Lotus flower. Natural Padparadscha is among the rarest and most highly prized varieties of Sapphire and has become a collector’s item, often bought as quickly as it is found.
Rare Padparadscha and Orange Sapphire Gemstones
Padparadscha sapphire gemstones are the king of the fancy sapphire gemstone family. The orange-pink or pinkish-orange color of the Padparadscha sapphire is said to resemble the color of a lotus flower blossom. The exact color of a fine padparadscha sapphire is debatable among gem dealers and gemologists. What is not in debate is the beauty of a very fine quality padparadscha gemstone. For the purists, the only true source of the padparadscha is Sri Lanka.
