Modern Puzzle Ring
This unique ring combines two separate bands – one band of palladium (light gray) and the other of 14k Yellow Gold – creating a very elegant contrast of colors between the two metals, two separate rings that interlock to make a unique ring, symbolic of the union of a couple. Each ring is handmade by a master goldsmith to your specifications. Available in 14k White Gold, 18k Yellow Gold, or Palladium.

Lisa Krikawa
Born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, Lisa Krikawa moved to the United States in 1976, and has since lived in southern California and in Arizona. In 1997, she graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Arizona with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, with emphasis in jewelry and metalsmithing. The jewelry is inspired by historic and futuristic forms, influences that stem from Lisa's studies in traditional and contemporary styles of jewelry and metalsmithing, as well as her studies in art history. Simple in form, elegant, unique, and sculptural, this jewelry is a fine addition to any jewelry collection.

Carved Wing Engagement Ring
This design elegantly features a square cut Green Tourmaline, although other stone shapes are just as beautiful. The crossing of metals on the side of the ring draws the eye up to the stone where the divided setting holds the diamond at its four corners. Available in 14k White Gold, 18k Yellow Gold, or Palladium.

Lisa has received many awards for her designs and craftsmanship. This year, 2008, Lisa and her team have already won numerous awards. Krikawa took first place in the WJA's Diva Awards for her Platinum Wedding Set.
