Cutting in half a round Ruby and Cubic Zirconia stone with a small stone set in a bezel in the center is the key to this design.
But I decided to take it one step further by adding color stones to the engagement ring. The Peridot (the green stones) represents the heath and the engagement band set with blue Topaz shows your experience.
Credit goes to my little brother, Josh, for coming up with the name of the design. I present, the Trainer’s Band.
Mako is defined by the grey colour and the blue colour… On the other hand, Raleigh is in a colour space made up of greens, browns and amber. - Guillermo del Toro
For most of Pacific Rim, Mako is defined by the color blue because it represents the trauma she went through on the day her family died. She literally carried that memory with her by dyeing her hair blue so that she had a constant reminder of her goal. Everything she did contributed to her goal of becoming a Jaeger pilot and avenging her family. “For my family” wasn’t just a battle cry, it was the credo by which she lived her life and it didn’t leave much room for anything but work. When she surfaced in the escape pod at the end of the movie, it was the first time since Tokyo that she was free from her vow. She had avenged her family, and cancelled the apocalypse. When she took her first breath of air, it was as a free woman. Her life wasn’t defined by the color blue anymore, because by destroying the breach she had fulfilled her promise to herself and made sure that no other family would be torn apart the way hers had been. The tracing dye was pumped into the water around her, and Mako was surrounded by green, for the first time in the movie. Green is the color of life and growth. Green is Raleigh’s color. Mako was reborn again not of trauma this time, but out of victory and her relationship with Raleigh. Her life won’t be defined by her past anymore, but by whatever the hell she chooses.
