One can ALWAYS spot a Lilly Barrack ring!
Edgy, contemporary, eclectic, unique, beautiful and BLUE will best describe this killer ring.
Lilly always starts out with a very heavy/hefty sterling silver gauge metal to construct the shank. Even though it is hard and stiff there is a slit open shank under the stones for slight size adjustment. (Now size 7)
The shank (band) gives the appearance of bands overlapping and is 1/2" wide.
Four gorgeous natural deep purple Tanzanites all in different shapes and sizes sit in their bezels on top.
Wow, what a crazy and beautiful piece of art to wear!
I have been to Lily Barrack's studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico twice now to watch the amazing production of this beautiful jewelry.
She is my absolute favorite artist for doing contemporary jewelry artwork with stones in the rough.
All the stones are hand selected by Lily herself and each mounted in a handcrafted form to fit around the stone in bezel style.
Native Americans are employed to do all the phenomenal hand work.
