Thank you to Amy Elliott of jewelry publication JCK for including my Marie Antoinette design on her list of “supersize” amethyst cocktail rings in honor of February’s birthstone.
Not only is the amethyst in this ring supersize, it’s super-customized! I had the 27.64-carat cabochon specially cut to fit the setting I’d already designed. Most jewelers work the other way, but I’ve got to be me.
It was also exciting to see the two-finger ring I created for ANZA Gems on the cover of Prism, the magazine of the American Gem Trade Association. Monica Stephenson, the founder of ANZA, was wearing the ring when she got her copy.
So I walked into @agta_gems and @meg_whit hands me the new #ePrism magazine and the @anzagems X @wendybrandesjewelry ring is on the cover!!! Freaking out!!! The cover is KILLER, @hollyrpeete is so gorgeous, and to be part of this is a dream I could not have imagined just a year or so ago starting ANZA! Thanks Wendy, Megan, AGTA and all the editors who fell in love with this ring! #gems #gemstones #spessartite #greengarnet #spinel @ptgems #cutbyptgems
The lovely lady modeling the ring on the cover is actress Holly Robinson Peete. Thanks to AGTA and Holly for the fabulous photo!
