Researched gemstone color to find a blue green color that matched the Caribbean Ocean water and found an Emerald cut Zircon from a vendor.
Researched metal type to determine what was both cost effective and durable, finding, via google search, that Palladium was less expensive than Platinum, yet provided a very similar durability.
Creating the different depths of the ring and maintaining a solid durable design and setting the stones was process that took patients and a steady hand.
