Russian recipe for luxury

The first time you visit the frigid Russian tundra (if you ever choose to do such a thing), it might seem as though there could not be a harsher, more unforgiving environment in the world. This is the frozen landscape of Dr. Zhivago. This is where you travel by train for days and see nothing but white from your window. This is where, in 1933, the world's lowest temperature outside of Antarctica was recorded (-90F). But, in the grand tradition of hidden treasures buried in the most remote places, we now know that this cold corner of the world is one of the few places you can find chrome diopside. We call our captivating cocktail the Green Russian Ring.

Delicately prong set in .925 sterling silver, and sparkling with a green more brilliant than emerald (chrome diopside has nearly twice the refraction index), the 1 1⁄3 carat stunner at the center of this ring demonstrates perfectly why people brave the below freezing temperatures of Siberia for these vivid gemstones. There's just nothing else that shines like chrome diopside. Encircling the center stone, and adorning the shoulders of the ring are 27 brilliant African white topaz rounds. It's a glorious mix of green and white guaranteed to keep you cool, no matter how hot it gets!
