Custom Yellow and White Gold Labradorite Ring
My client fell in love with yellow labradorite, a mineral which she chose specifically for its color and the place where she lives in Alaska. This gemstone displays a bit of iridescent color play caused by internal fractures that reflect light back and forth, dispersing it into different colors.. Labradorite is so well known for these spectacular displays of color that the phenomenon is known as “labradorescence.” It holds up well to cutting and faceting making it a radiant choice for this memorial ring.
The simple yellow and white gold design reflects her casual lifestyle in the north. The paw laser imprint was created from Toby’s actual paw print. I designed the yellow gold bezel to highlight the stone and make it stand out. The true secret of this piece is that we even set a few strands of Toby’s hair into the bezel as a way to carry her memory and the love her human family had for her. Read the full story here.
