The Red Violin - March 31st 2012

A very special event was held in Prince George Saturday March 31st by the Prince George Symphony Orchestra. Elizabeth Pitcairn, a celebrated violin virtuoso, played her Red ‘Mendelssohn’ Stradivarius violin. We created a diamond and rose gold violin pendant titled “The Master’s Touch” which was raffled at the concert. The raffle for the pendant raised over $6000 for the PGSO. We are very honoured to have been a part of this exceptionally rare, first class event.

"The Master's Touch"

Darrell Hubbell, our master goldsmith, hand formed this pendant in 14kt rose and palladium white gold. There are fourteen round brilliant cut diamonds set into the white gold of this pendant, ranging from 0.01ct to 0.035ct. The body of the violin is polished to a high gloss and carved with the same lines as the multi-million dollar red violin. This piece is accompanied by a 14kt yellow gold round wheat link chain which is 20” long. We have titled it “The Master’s Touch”, and this ladies’ pendant and chain have an appraised value of $3,096.80.

The Strauss Sizzle Symphony Ball - Jan 29th 2011

"Champagne Evenings"

This ring was designed especially for this event, which is a fundraiser for the Prince George Symphony Orchestra. The ring is created from 14kt yellow and palladium white gold and the stone is a 7.0ct checkerboard cut blue topaz. The bezel comes complete with champagne bubbles carved into it. On each side of the band at the point where the arms join to the bezel there is a 0.03ct round brilliant cut diamond set into a circle of palladium white gold. There is stippled texturing wrapped around and down the sides of the band. Hubbell Designer Goldsmiths is extremely honoured to present this donation worth $2508 as the door prize for the 2011 Strauss Sizzle Symphony Ball.

Strauss Ball - Jan 30th 2010

"Big Love"

"Big Love" was designed especially for The Strauss Ball, and it was a perfect fit as Darrell Hubbell was on the organizing community this year for this classy and fanciful evening. This striking 14kt yellow and white gold blue topaz and diamond ladies' ring is special for more than one reason. We alloyed the yellow gold ourselves from nuggets panned in Dawson City. The white gold we used to create the heart that compliments the 16mm x 12mm 11ct checkerboard cut blue topaz is the traditional high quality palladium white gold we use in all of our original creations. The topaz is cut with very good proportions and is held tightly by a two stage hand formed wire basket. Another little touch with a big impact is the 0.06ct VS2 G round brilliant cut diamond that graces the side of the band opposite the white gold heart. The band is decorated strategically with textures, polished surfaces, and carved lines. "Big Love" is simply spectacular, and we were very proud to present it as the door prize for the 2010 Strauss Ball in Prince George. This donation has an appraised value of $2418 including taxes.

Strauss Ball - January 2009

"Dancing Diamonds"

 Just in time for the ball - "Dancing Diamonds" was the door prize for the 2009 Strauss Ball. Hand formed in 14kt yellow and palladium white gold, this one of a kind ring with a 9mm spherical cultured pearl and three round brilliant cut diamonds on the sides of the band will forever invoke the scene of an elegant and blissful dance.

Strauss Ball - January 2006

"In the Moment"

This pendant is a lovely design that looks like a woman ballroom dancing. Hand formed in silky 18kt yellow and palladium white gold, there is a 0.16ct round brilliant cut diamond set in a palladium white gold bezel and a deep pink 1.66ct pear shaped pink tourmaline, also bezel set. This pendant glides smoothly over the 18 inch yellow gold snake chain that came with it. An exquisite pendant for an exquisite evening.
