Gregory Pyra Piro C Rings

One of the ring styles created by Gregory Pyra Piro in his jewelry are the C rings. The C rings have a C shape shank and have a more contemporary look. Although the C rings look uncomfortable, they are one of the most comfortable rings that you will ever try on. The inside of the ring shank is specially polished to give the rings a very smooth finish. Like other Gregory's rings, the C rings have a sterling silver ring shank base, which is entirely handmade. The handmade ring tops also entirely handmade have a 18 karat gold accents, which are solid gold and are not plated. One of the benefits of solid 18k Gold accents is that if the rings need to be repolished or cleaned, the solid gold will not polish off like plated gold. Another benefit is that the rings have a unique concept that instead of them being all silver like most silver jewelry, they are both silver and gold. And when the sterling silver rings with solid 18 karat gold accents are worn over time the solid gold will not wear off like plated gold even if the ring is worn frequently. The C rings like other rings which Gregory creates have a variety of natural gemstones. The gemstones, first of all are all natural and Gregory does not set imitations of natural stones in his jewelry. So every ring that Gregory creates has natural gemstones. And not only that the stones are natural, but the setting that the stones go into are Gregory's special unique created settings, which are his own, settings found in Gregory's jewelry are not found in any other jewelry. These really are entirely handmade rings. The center stones in the rings are usually facet cut and may include: amethyst, blue topaz, citrine, garnet, peridot, and tourmaline. The center stones are the main stones in the rings and they can be accompanied by the melee or the smaller gemstones, which may be either precious or semi precious like the larger gemstones. The melee stones may include: diamonds, emeralds, white sapphires, blue sapphires, or rubies. Because Gregory's jewelry has a silver base the precious stones may be set in or around the solid 18 karat gold accents, but their size usually will not be more than 3mm. If a precious stone is any larger than that their price will exceed the cost of Gregory's rings and the stones may not be a very good match for Gregory's rings. Though what is most unique in Gregory's C rings is not so much that they have natural gemstones, but rather how the gemstones are combined together with other items. In Gregory's rings the natural gemstones can be combined together with artisan jewelry style items like glass, sea glass (please look around our website). This kind of combination is what makes Gregory's jewelry distinct and unique. Neither will most artists use natural faceted gemstones in their jewelry, nor will fine jewelry offered in jewelry stores have glass, sea glass, amber, etc, together with the faceted gems. But yet this unique combination is found in Gregory's jewelry and this is one of the main reasons why it is so unique. Some pieces showing faceted gemstones and sea glass are found on our sea glass page, and some pieces that have the glass with the combination of faceted gems are found on our glass page. And another unique item is the amber, which is also placed together in combination with the faceted gemstones. Some pieces showing amber with a combination of faceted gems is shown on our amber page. For an artist's jewelry to be unique there has to be something different and unique about it. In Australia where the opal is mined lots of jewelry offered has the opal. The opal in Gregory's jewelry is also combined with other facet cut gemstones.

Originally made with handtools and soldering this jewellery is still made in the same way as it was. The base part of each piece is made from sterling silver, which is bent, shaped, hammered, and cut with handtools. The base has some additional torch work to give it a unique shape and design. Each of the bezels for the stones is custom made from scratch for each gemstone. The base, bezels, and other components are soldered together by torch. Nothing is cast. Torch work which melts the metal creates unique patterns which never repeat in the same way twice. The addition of 14 karat gold work is added by soldering 14 karat or 18 karat gold wire over the sterling silver base. The solid gold wire melts forming unique patterns at the same time as it is soldered. The torch here works exactly like a paint brush and the wire works like oil paint on canvas. This jewellery is very different because it is made in a very different way. If you like any of the pieces visit our home page to see the new ones.

Over the course of Gregory's long time in the US, Gregory's jewellery has gone a different direction and has gained a different form. In the states Gregory's jewellery got some changes, the addition of faceted gemstones with pearls, or for some pieces the addition of seaglass or beach glass. To have semi precious gemstones and seaglass in handmade jewellery is similar to some of British artist handcrafted jewellery in the British craft movement in Britian. Despite of where Gregory's jewellery was made, whether it was in Europe or in the states, and whatever the jewellery had the intricate detail and sophisticated design has always remained.

Gregory Pyra Piro, an international jewelry artist, has been creating his work in different countries, some of which include: Poland, Germany, Sweden, and the United States. Born in Poland in the 1950's, Gregory began creating art jewellery from a very young age in Poland. He was one of the pioneers in the jewellery sucession movement in Poland, which included goldsmith and silversmith artists who worked with torch soldering techniques, working in free form and with wire melting techniques. One of the particular and different early characteristics in Gregory's work was placing gemstones with amber. While this website shows mostly Gregory's late designs, some of his early design pieces are also shown here on this website. These early pieces were published in books, and some of these pieces were shown in museums in Europe. Some of Gregory's work may be on display in the Malbork Castle Museum, in Malbork, and the Amber Museum in Gdansk in Poland, and the Pforzheim Jewellery Museum may have Gregory's work in their archives. Because right now this was years ago, some of the museums may have Gregory's work in their archives. In the 1970's Gregory emigrated to Sweden where he made pieces which were purchased for the Royal family, for King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia in 1976 after his work was shown in Tidö Slott, in Tidö-Lindö, Sweden. In the late 1970's Gregory left Sweden and returned to Poland. In 1981 just before Poland went into the martial law, Gregory emigrated to the United States. In the US Gregory continued to create jewelry throughout the 1980's, 1990's, and 2000's. In the 1990's Gregory's jewelry got a new touch, the addition of solid gold on sterling silver. Since the mid 1990's Gregory's jewelry also changed to include facet cut gemstones, which gave the jewelry a more similar look to what it looks like today. Throughout the 1990's and 2000's Gregory's creations were offerred in many art and craft galleries around the US where hundreds of people today may own his jewellery pieces. In the 2010's a few stores in Europe also had his work. Today the work made by Gregory is still one of a kind and it is handmade original by the artist just like it used to be. Just recently right now in the mid 2010's the work got a still a more contemporary look. See this new work on the link below. The work you will see below is now made by an artist who now clocks 50 years of jewellery making and jewellery soldering experience and has behind him thousands of one of a kind jewellery pieces.

1. The artist who makes the jewellery clocks a whopping of fifty years of handson jewellery making experience.

2. The the artist has international experience in creating, making, and selling one of a kind jewellery internationally both in Europe and the US.

3. Gregory Pyra Piro jewellery has been offerred by many craft galleries in the US for over 20 years.

4. Gregory Pyra Piro's work has been published in books and magazines and the work was or may still be on display in National Museums in Europe

5. Gregory Pyra Piro's work has been written about by some of the most professional people in the industry.

6. Gregory's work was purchased for the Royal Family in Sweden in 1976.

1. The jewellery is not just from sterling silver, but it is from both sterling silver and solid 14 karat gold.

2. Sterling silver and solid 14 karat gold handmade jewellery is a very rare item that only a very few artists make.

3. Sterling silver and solid gold accent jewellery is not to be confused with cheaper production sterling silver jewellery with gold plated accents.

5. Solid 14 karat gold accents will not wear off like gold plated accents on cheaper produciton jewellery because the gold is solid gold.

6. It is safe to repolish sterling silver jewellery that has solid gold accents because the accents will not polish off.

7. The solid gold 14 karat gold accents can amount to double the value of the sterling silver in each piece despite of its much lesser quantity.

More About the jewellery

Unique from sterling silver and solid gold with unusual combinations of faceted gemstones with seaglass, faceted gemstones with amber, or gemstones with pearls, this jewellery is a very unique composition. Originally made by hand tools and soldering it is still made the same way, made from sterling silver sheet metal and silver wire which is cut, hammered, polished and shaped. Each of the bezels are custom made for each of the gemstones. Nothing is cast. The sterling silver base metal and other components are assembled together by soldering, and the addition of the solid 14 karat gold over the sterling silver base is soldered onto the sterling silver base with a torch, which melts in unique intricate forms and patterns.

One of the recent Gregory Pyra Piro jewelry design work is C ring #4950. The Piro ring is in sterling silver and 18 karat gold but with a very unique combination of not only silver and gold, but also ebony wood. The facet cut garnet, citrine, and small blue sapphire are placed above the ebony wood, which makes the design very unique.
