Grand Prize Winner, Platinum 1st Place & Retailer’s Choice

This bold royal blue oval sapphire weighing 11.75 carats is the focal point of this detailed ring design; accompanied by an AGL report stating its origin is Madagascar. Its triple claw-like prongs provide protection and importance, but they are still delicate due to their exquisite craftsmanship, which doesn’t detract from the center stone. The shank has a distinct harlequin-like pattern, with expertly matched tapering sapphires running its length; diamonds are set between the stones and the overall design is simultaneously classic and modern.

Colored Stone Jewelry, 1st Place

Platinum ring featuring an oval cobalt spinel accented by oval Paraíba-type tourmalines, round Paraíba tourmalines, round hauynes and round diamonds.

A one-of-a-kind design that will truly be the center of any colored gemstone lovers collection. The very rare cobalt spinel is the central blue hue tying together the spectrum of blue gemstones featured in this ring. The different blue hues are each unique yet compliment one another. Striking details elevate this ring like the bright Paraíba tourmalines and hauyne halo, all accented with round diamonds.

Men’s Jewelry, 1st Place & Retailer’s Choice

18K white gold ring accented with black rhodium featuring a 3.04 carat emerald-cut blue spinel accented by 1.50 carat total weight of round diamonds and 0.11 carat total weight of round alexandrites.

A striking and masculine design for any man. The white gold is finished with black rhodium giving it the perfect balance of elegance and masculinity. The emerald-cut blue spinel is accented with round brilliant-cut diamonds that are statement worthy.
