One golden rule of fine jewelry is it should look good all over, inside and out. The craftsmanship is what makes the piece more than just an accessory. Karen Bizer’s ring is that type of treasure. I could get lost in all the extras she has added to the jewel. The stones are a beautiful combination of white opal on top of green chrysophase surrounded by circle of diamonds punctuated with four demantoid garnets set in 18K gold. Compass is the perfect name for the ring since the designer has found her true north.
