Travels of a Ring: From a sketch in Mill Valley to a New Zealand proposal January 24 2016

We have a beautiful collection of gemstones at Alix & Company.  For this project our customer selected one of our beautiful green sapphires and we built a classic setting to show it off.  It is a challenge with all rings to keep the gemstone sitting on top of the finger as rings like to rotate to the side.  To address this we flatten the bottom of the band, so that the ring sits comfortably and snugly on the finger.  This is a  great way to keep the sparkle on the top, where it belongs, and exceptionally comfortable as well.
