March 2016 Rings

 A very special 'ripple top' Montana sapphire by master gem cutter John Dyer, set in recycled 18k yellow gold

Tucson Gem Show, February 2016, Part 5

Saving the best for last... in this final post of treasures from my trip to the Tucson Gem show, I have some incredible gems to share with you. These are special because they were cut by award winning gem cutters in fancy/designer/trademarked cuts. Believe me when I say that these are going to make some stunning rings.
