The Spectrums




The gents of Ambassador Gems are on the road a lot. So when Greg called out of the blue one day in February to ask if I had time to shoot their AGTA Spectrum Award-winning ring, featuring an incredible 6.26ct padparadscha sapphire, I didn’t hesitate. The collaborative ring was designed by Lindsay Jane, whose moonstone ring you’ve seen on this blog before, and executed by The Rephinery, a custom design company known for their impeccable quality. The center stone, of course, was one of Ambassador Gems’.

There’s only one way to properly photograph a ring like this, and that’s in several angles. As is often the case with pieces that have a beautiful center stone as well as notable design aspects throughout the piece, no one angle is going to tell the whole story. As you can see above, I shot three different views of the piece, which I delivered along with the compilation shot you see here.

I’m so pleased that the stars aligned and I was able to shoot this gorgeous piece while it was passing through Carlsbad. I’m eager to see what this dynamic team comes up with for the next show!
