Beautiful setting for a beautiful gemstone. I know all monitors show differently but it looks like a deep rich tanzanite. I really like that wrap, it is one of the prettiest I have ever seen. I make and sell jewelry and if I can come even close to this I would be very happy. Thank you for the very well done tutorial. This old dog is going to try to learn one more new trick.
