One of my personal favorite American designers is the award-winning Mark Schneider, of Schneider Design Studio. Located in Long Beach, CA, Mark is one of the few living jewelry designers to have a piece on permanent display in the Smithsonian Institution's National Gem Collection. Mark's contemporary yet classic styling, fine craftsmanship and impeccable taste in fine colored gemstones says it all!
I LOVE this "Fantasy" tanzanite ring, set in platinum with a beautiful 8 ct. tanzanite and yellow and white diamonds in a cross-over design. The cross-over band is different, the cut of the tanzanite is different, using the yellow and white diamonds is different, and yet the piece is a timeless classic:
