A large modernist ring, made in 18k yellow gold and featuring a light-pink, fantasy-cut morganite gem. This morganite is nineteen-plus carats. It is deeply craved, on its reverse side, in an asymmetrical manner that suggests a landscape— this carving creates the unusual play of light that is unique to fantasy cut gems. The weighty setting is composed of a deep bezel and a split flat wire shank that stands proud of this bezel, at the shoulder. The overall effect is futuristic, celestial, otherworldly, though I also see a Nguni shield suggested by the stone's perimeter. This ring is one of a kind and endlessly fascinating.
