“In the fine category Lucas Ebbeke from Auckland stole the show with his flower ring titled ‘Primavera’ (Spanish for Spring) which transforms at the flick of a hidden mechanism into a pendant studded with almost $30,000 worth of sapphires and diamonds”.

“Judges were simply dazzled by Lucas’ ring made with platinum, 18ct pink gold, white and yellow diamonds, and Ceylonese sapphires”.

“The design, finish and technical skills involved in the piece were some of the best we have seen. He is surely a Master Jeweller.”
