From the internet:

The gems associated with John C. Rinker are some of the best-kept secrets in the trade. A master goldsmith by training and profession, Rinker has been in the jewelry business for almost four decades now. He remains in the Baltimore area, where he has built up a loyal clientele.

In the past, Rinker specialized in the design of unique pieces for Dahne and Weinstein. Sadly, this outlet closed its doors. While he gave them two decades of his expertise and impressive artistic ability, he did not hesitate to sign on with Heirloom Jewels as an antique restorer and designer.


Tanzanite is the blue/violet variety of the mineral zoisite (a calcium aluminium hydroxyl Sorosilicate) belonging to the epidote group. It was discovered in the Mererani Hills of Manyara Region in Northern Tanzania in 1967, near the city of Arusha and Mount Kilimanjaro.

I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.
