While designer Carl Ansley is inspired by the natural world, you'll see it most in the line and proportion of his modern pieces rather than in traditional motifs. Throughout his 22 year-career, which began at Tiffany & Co., Carl has developed a deep appreciation for the artistic process behind creating gorgeous, eye-catching jewelry. Form follows function but doesn't overwhelm it. For example, because rings can twist on the finger, he creates a natural curve high on a ring's shoulders so it will rest comfortably on the finger next to it. He takes great care to create jewelry that makes a bold statement in order to express a woman's own style and personality. Carl says the greatest accomplishment of his long career is designing and crafting his wife's diamond engagement ring and wedding band. It's just what you'd expect from a designer who thinks first of the woman who will wear his jewelry.
Fire Opal Quality
The fire opal is all about unity; in fact it symbolizes the unity of two polar opposites: fire and water. Fire opal forms when water seeps into silica-rich red, hot lava, filling all its crevices. Then the silica forms a solid gel, trapping the remaining water within its structure. This vivid gem's beauty also will remind you of flames. Color is the most important factor to consider in picking the perfect fire opal and a vivid orange hue means it is of fine quality. Unlike most opal, fire opal is faceted and has brilliance, as well as a bright, day-glow, orange color. Born in the fire of Mexico's volcanoes, fire opal's natural, bright orange color is unmatched in the gem kingdom. Cut is more important than clarity when choosing your fire opal because fire opal often has a welcome haziness that actually increases the vibrancy of its color. Opal is the October birthstone and the 14th anniversary gem. All Gemvara jewelry is made to order, which ensures that a premium-quality fire opal will be hand-selected to perfectly suit your design. Crafted in the United States, Gemvara's fine fire opal jewelry is precious and personal, surely to be passed down for generations to come.
