AGTA Platinum Honors
Ron Lodholz of Stonehaven Jewelry Gallery is awarded platinum honors in the 2011 American Gem Trade Association's Spectrum awards.
The spectrum awards have long been the standard by which all other jewelry design competitions are judged. It is the most revered and desired award in the industry. Platinum honors is an award giving specifically for excellence in the use of platinum in the winning design. Ron Lodholz hand fabricated this award winner from platinum with simplicity as the motivating concept. A stunning elongated emerald cut aquamarine is held aloft in a deep canyon of polished platinum. The play of light on a concave band that uses negative space as a design element is technically challenging in its simplicity. There is nothing extra, no gimmicks, no fuss. This ring is simple and pure and elemental in nature. Clean and lovely it inspires one to hope and honesty.
