Ballerina Ring

The designer's love for classical music and Russian ballet inspired her to create this ring, which offers the opportunity to showcase one of her strengths: designing with organic shapes. This rose gold ring and its morganite stone surrounded by pink sapphires is one to behold. The bezel design allows the sparkle of the precious gemstones to shine through and show their colors while the ballerina figure and wavy stone arrangement make up a dynamic shape of the ring, giving the impression that the ballerina is floating along your hand.

Larisa Zolotova’s jewelry making at first was an interest that slowly went from just a hobby to a very strong and unique passion. After taking her first jewelry fabrication class in Saint Petersburg, Russia, she changed her life immediately and decided to pursue the art of jewelry making it a new career. She continued to develop her technical skills and knowledge for working with precious metals and gems at the School of Jewelry Arts in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Larisa was inspired while working with her experienced mentors and continue to enhance her studies as a jewelry designer through traveling, nature and the utilization of bright colors. Later she continued her training by learning how to create jewelry using CAD software and evaluate gemstones at the Gemological Institute of America in Carlsbad, California, where she was named the winner of a GIA Student Choice Award for creating her Marilyn Monroe Ring and was nicknamed “Lady Faberge” for designing her Fine Jewelry Egg "The Movie Theatre". Larisa Zolotova’s signature is the connection between the function and the sculpture. She experiments with all types of shapes and natural forms like flowers, birds, animals, and people. Larisa’s vision is to create dynamic, intriguing, complex and unique jewelry that appeals to extraordinary women: independent spirits forging their own path and inspiring others to do the same. Larisa’s aim is to design beautiful, timeless pieces of jewelry while ensuring each piece has that ‘wow’ factor that people of all ages can truly appreciate.
