A comfortable, one-of-a kind statement ring - FOUND! I've set these three gorgeous gemstones in snug and cozy mountings and tapered the back of the ring to make it easy to wear and use your hands in a way that many "statement rings" have neglected.
This ring is all about harmony in differences. I was drawn to the flecks of indigo, blue, and violet in the anemone and loved the playful duality of it next to the yellow and orange range in the friendly little fossil. To really draw out the violet of the fossilized sand dollar, I accompanied it with yellow gold set iolite.
A cool surprise was in store for me after I created this ring! I wanted to learn more about iolite and was pleasantly surprised to learn that iolite is a special stone. It is highly pleochroic, meaning that its crystalline structure is such that from different angles it can appear dark indigo/violet or almost colorless to yellow/grey. So, the duality I was seeking to exploit in this gemstone ring was an innate and strong quality of the very stone itself! I love it when things like this happen. I hope you do, too!
This ring can steal the show on your hand all by itself, but I also think you can pair it with some simple bands on other fingers. The colors are subtle enough to be worn with any other colors. This is a modern day form of a statement ring... the everyday statement ring.
