This tanzanite was an anniversary gift. It was a gorgeous stone, purchased by him- as a surprise for her- on a trip they took together.
She wanted a modern design with clean lines with design detail to it. She wanted to wear the ring a lot, and Tanzanites are fragile. The setting needed to protect the stone and also let in lots of light to show its great color. After looking at photos of jewelry together, the design direction was in place. Refined more in both renderings and actual 3D models of the ring to check fit, the ring was created and set.
Looking at the finished ring… as the Tanzanite takes in the light from above, there’s a wonderful soft bluish glow illuminating out through the open sides.
