About Iolite Engagement Jewelry by Carl Ansley
Engagement rings have been the ultimate symbol of love for thousands of years. In ancient Egypt, they wore rings on the third finger of the left hand to mark where the "vein of love" went directly to the heart, starting a tradition that continues today. When pledging your love with a unique engagement ring, you are starting your own family tradition. The most important value factor to consider when shopping for iolite engagement jewelry is the quality of the center stone. Gemvara hand-selects top quality conflict-free gems that are expertly cut for maximum beauty. Iolite has a natural blue beauty with the look you love for less. Our unrivalled selection of engagement rings by Ji Hwang, Carl Ansley, Stephanie Satow, and other talented jewelry designers means you can find an engagement ring that perfectly symbolizes your relationship. Clean iolite engagement jewelry with mild dish soap: use a soft brush where dust collects. When taking off your engagement ring, don't pull on the gemstone: this won't damage the gem but it can, over time, stretch the metal that holds it in place, making the setting less secure. Be careful when removing your ring to wash your hands. Don't leave it on the rim of a sink where it can slip down the drain! Gemvara's fine quality iolite engagement jewelry are designed to be passed down for generations to come, crafted by hand in the United States.
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.
Exploration is the meaning attached to the iolite gemstone. This term comes from the tale of Leif Eriksson. When he and other legendary Viking explores ventured into the Atlantic searching for the new world, they used a naturally polarizing iolite lens to determine the exact position of the sun in order to navigate safely. This technique was made possible due to iolite's plechoism: its ability to display a different color for each different direction. It is violet blue from one angle, clear as water from another and a honey yellow from the top. This characteristic makes it difficult to cut an iolite because in the wrong shape, iolite's color will not be properly displayed. The color of an iolite is its most important value factor: the more pure and saturated the blue, the more valuable the iolite is. Historically called the "water sapphire," an iolite is a charming, blue gem with a steely hue that resembles the color of the ocean at dawn. Iolite is the gem of the 21st anniversary. All Gemvara jewelry is made to order, which ensures that a premium-quality iolite will be hand-selected to perfectly suit your design. Crafted in the United States, Gemvara's fine iolite jewelry is precious and personal, surely to be passed down for generations to come.
