AGTA 2018 Spectrum Award Winning
The Manufacturing Honors Award in Business & Day Wear
We created this winning Kaleidoscope Solitaire ring for the AGTA 2018 Spectrum Awards, our first ever entry into the AGTA national design contest.
The AGTA Spectrum Kaleidoscope Solitaire
Our Kaleidoscope design begins with an extraordinary old European cut 3.74 carat Malawi Aquamarine, set to perfection in our handmade 18k rose gold disc bezel and suspended on our hand carved platinum band. The finishing touch of a .241 carat vibrant red ruby, precision set just below the culet, creates a stunning kaleidoscope tapestry from above. The Kaleidoscope Solitaire is a beautiful mashup of old world design and modern minimalist architecture.
Old European Cut Aquamarine
Our Kaleidoscope Aquamarines are custom cut for us by Peter Torraca of Torraca Gemcutting in New York. The Kaleidoscope concept came to life after we saw Peter's design of an old European cut Aquamarine on his instagram page two years ago. We were already avid followers and we have worked together on numerous projects over the years beyond the three designs in our Kaleidoscope Collection. He matches our level of precision and quality in craft and he personally sources his gemstone rough through fair and ethical means. Peter’s side of the story can be found here:
