A complete lack of understanding of dolphin behavior coupled with the apparent charm of these animals with their perpetually smiling faces probably encouraged people to believe in their superhuman abilities. It must have been, and perhaps still is, easy to interpret dolphin behavior by relating it to human behavior. But what makes for a good story does not necessarily make for good science.

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.
