This ring was commissioned as a holiday gift to a beloved woman. Asked for was a cocktail ring in green and gold, with a custom gem from Top Notch Faceting as the focal piece. The canopy green tourmaline, from Nigeria, informed the design decisions. This collector dreams of traveling to Africa and one day climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. The gemstone being native to Africa, also longs to return. African motifs adorn the ring, translated subtly into an esoteric reminder of the wearer's aspirations.
