August’s Jewel of the Month — the two-finger ring I designed for ANZA Gems — has gotten some more love on Instagram, thanks to its appearance at last Monday’s press preview for the American Gem Trade Association’s Spectrum Awards.
Benjamin Guttery of Third Coast Gems chose it as a personal favorite.
National Jeweler wrote, “Beautiful design + stunning gems + a good cause = winning!”
We know this ring has been making the rounds lately, but we'd be remiss if we didn't also include it in our @agta_gems spectrum Instagram roundup. This @wendybrandesjewelry ring features a grossular garnet, spessartite garnet and Mahenge spinel, all from @anzagems. Beautiful design + stunning gems + a good cause = winning! #jewelry #jewelrylove #agtaspectrum16 #gems
Thanks so much, Benjamin and National Jeweler! I’m glad people are enjoying this design. As a bonus, I got a kick out of National Jeweler’s comment, “We know this ring has been making the rounds lately, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t also include it in our @agta_gems spectrum Instagram roundup.” Dang! Time flies online. The ring has only been out a week and it’s already heading towards Taylor Swift-level overexposure in the jewelry industry! Now I just need Kanye West to make it a national obsession. If he can do that, I promise I won’t complain if he follows up by saying, “I made that bitch famous” … about the ring.
