U Rings Gregory Pyra Rings

One of the ring styles by jewelry artist Gregory Pyra Piro are the U Rings, shown on this page. The U rings have a u shape shank, which is made in sterling silver. The U rings like other Gregory Pyra rings have a sterling silver base and have 18 karat gold accents. The 18 karat gold accents are solid 18 karat gold and are soldered onto the sterling silver base. If the rings need to be repolished there is not problem that the solid 18 karat gold accents would polish off like gold plated ones, and the rings can be repolished as many times as needed without loss of gold on them. The U rings come with a variety of faceted gemstones, which usually include: amethyst, blue topaz, citrine, garnet, peridot, and tourmaline. These faceted gemstones are natural and are the center or the main stones in the ring. The rings may additionally have melee stones which are smaller in size and they may include: diamonds, emeralds, blue sapphires, white sapphires, and rubies.

Originally made with handtools and soldering this jewellery is still made in the same way as it was.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.

about the artist

Gregory Pyra, 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. So this is how you would know that what he does cannot be something that everybody else could learn to do. Gregory was one of the first Polish artists in Poland who added gemstones such as amethyst and garnet to amber jewellery made in silver. Some of his early design pieces are shown here on our website. These pieces are also published in books. And some of these pieces are shown today in in museums such as the Malbork Castle Museum, in Malbork on display, and the Amber Museum in Gdansk in Poland on display, and the Pforzheim Jewellery Museum, if Pforzheim has Gregory's rings 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 1981 when Gregory emigrated to the United States his jewellery got an upgrade from just sterling silver to sterling silver and gold. And instead of amber, faceted gemstones were now one of the jewellery's main features. To the gemstones Gregory added additional components such as sea glass, sea shells, glass, and pearls. And once again, this wasn't just jewellery, but it was art jewellery. After living in the United States for a number of years eventually Gregory decided to return home to Europe. Today Gregory's art jewellery is shown on different social media and on our website.

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 very unique and placing such combinations together in jewellery are a Gregory Pyra Piro's trademark, and not only that, but all this is done very skillfully to all work together. 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. The torch here works just like a paint brush works, the wire works like the oil paint, and the sheet metal works like the canvas. Just like oil on canvas paintings are not prints, Gregory Pyra Piro art jewellery pieces are not castings. For anyone who is a Gregory Pyra Piro's customer this is one of the key and most important things to know.
