BEAVER CREEK — A one-of-a-kind, diamond, cement, steel and gold ring will be on display at J. Cotter Gallery in Beaver Creek for the duration of the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships. Jim Cotter made this piece as a commission for one of his clients.

“It’s the only 10-carat diamond that I have ever seen set in cement,” said Cotter about his creation.

Fearless Innovator

With over 45 years of unique creations under his belt, Cotter is known for his use of mixed materials in jewelry pieces. As a fearless innovator in his field, he is unafraid to mix wood with silver or cement with gold and diamonds.
