wisteria ring with a rhodolite garnet - size 7
This ring is inspired by the beauty of the stone enhanced by the story behind it.
This stone was purchased from an initiative that partner with Artisanal and Small Scale Mining associations. It provides for an assurance of the provenance of the stone, empower people in the supply chain, support communities and protect the environment. That is an investment towards a more responsible future.
Similarly to another one of my design, the wisteria ring, the prongs encircle the stone on both sides. Historically, wisteria symbolizes long-life and immortality. The prongs are harmoniously encircling the rhodolite gemstone, reminiscent of a wisteria vine.
The stone is at the center of this design. The rhodolite garnet gemstone is from Moyo Gems, an ethical gemstone program working with female artisan gemstone miners from mine to market. The gemstone was mined by Mariam in Tanzania and the gem was cut by Beth Stier in the United States. Moyo Gems represents a collaboration of hearts and minds that helps change the status quo for women artisanal miners in Tanga, Tanzania. They empower women miners to work safely, mine better, improve financial security, and create stable, equitable markets for fair trade.
