During the 2020 Spectrum Awards competition, the American Gem Trade Association (AGTA) honored Adam Neeley, and in partnership with Somewhere in the Rainbow, two Spectrum Awards for his ring design “Dark Knight”.
This striking piece showcases a magnificent 9.81 carat black Opal, from Lighting Ridge, Australia. Cradling and cascading down either side of the Opal are a stain-glass inspired mozaic of 5.06 carat total weight custom cut blue sapphire, 2.56 carat total weight tsavorite garnet and 0.28 carat total weight diamond set in two tones of precious metal.

Only the most brilliant, breathtaking pieces are worthy of the Best of Show trophy. Winning designs must possess beauty, mastery, and imagination beyond compare. Consideration for the Best of Show award is limited to first place winners in each category.
It’s an incredible thrill to receive this prestigious award. Adam and the team send sincere thanks to AGTA, Somewhere in the Rainbow for this exciting commission, and to our collectors for their continued support and shared love of jewelry art.
