About the West Side Style:
A ring of opportunity, ambition, and endless possibility, the West Side style is inspired by my time living in Manhattan. With visions of street grids alive with bright lights serving as inspiration, I created a ring in which the baguettes that compose the band seem to float on the finger, levitating on dreams. Holding the center stone is a basket made with clean, modern lines, and subtle millegrain detail--a nod to the magic in the details found all around the city.
About the Sapphire:
This ring features a central Montana Sapphire. The Sapphire was cut by renowned gemstone artist John Dyer. Dyer is a master gem cutter who is celebrated for his artistic ability. He is the recipient of over 50 elite gem-cutting awards, including a multi time winner of the AGTA Spectrum Awards.
Every John Dyer gemstone is a unique work of art. John Dyer studies each piece of gemstone rough individually to determine the best way to maximize the gem's beauty and brilliance. He releases the hidden allure of each gem through innovative, proprietary cutting styles.
Montana, known as the Treasure State, is rich in many mineral and gemstone sources, including sapphires. Gem-quality sapphires were first found in Montana in 1865 by gold rush prospectors who found the gems in gravel along the Missouri River. These gems came in a wide variety of fancy colors, including a range of blues and greens, purples, lavenders, pinks, yellow, and a host of other hues. With a hardness of 9 on the Mohs scale, only diamonds and other sapphires can scratch a sapphire. This along with the beautiful hues make it one of the most durable gemstones to use in everyday jewelry. Montana Sapphires are guaranteed to be sourced under safe working conditions using environmentally responsible principles.
