How did it come together?
One of my customers wanted a fine gemstone set and I love tanzanite. I showed her the stones and I got the green light to do it for her. I wanted to make something I felt was classy. She loves it and she has since ordered 12 sets from me, each set with a different gemstone. (London blue topaz, emerald, amethyst, Swiss blue topaz, pink topaz, smoky topaz, citrine, andalusite, garnet, rose quartz, green amethyst, tourmaline.)
