Emerald-Cut Sapphire and Diamond Ring

Emerald cut sapphire and diamond ring in platinum.

Blue Flame II !

A rich blue emerald-cut sapphire flanked by two cool white emerald-cut diamonds.  Our client wanted to create a ring that would highlight the bold geometry and contrasting colors of the gemstones.  So,  we began with an earlier Art Deco-inspired design,  Blue Flame,  and adapted it to meet our client's taste.

The sapphire is set with four platinum prongs while the flanking emerald-cut diamonds are channel set in half-bezel box-like settings.   The sapphire is set slightly above the diamonds to create a flight of  "descending steps"  that nicely accentuates the geometry of the emerald cuts.  The ring is hand crafted in platinum.

The band of the ring has a flat edge that is a little narrower than the emerald-cut diamonds,  continuing the look of tiered steps.  Each gem was selected to complement the proportions and brilliance of the others,  creating a stunning,  balanced trilogy of gemstones.  The platinum is polished to a mirror-like finish that complements the sapphire and diamonds.

The width of the band is consistent throughout its circumference,  adding to the strong geometric lines of the ring.  The settings for the emerald-cut diamonds are comprised of box-like compartments resting above a sturdy under bezel.  The diamonds are channel set with the outer edges exposed for a more open look.  Overall the setting is like a miniature masterpiece of Art Deco architecture.

Also note the thickness of the ring's band.  This ring was designed and crafted to wear comfortably and last for many generations.

"Looking under the hood"  you can see the beautiful polish and finish of the under surfaces.  Note the cut-outs or windows beneath each gemstone that are symmetrical and smooth with no uneven or jagged edges.  Our philosophy is that a fine jewel should be as nicely finished on the underside as it is on the top.

The Story Behind the Ring

Our client,  Andy,  was celebrating an important event with his wife .... the birth of twins.  He wanted to create a ring that would commemorate the occasion and their new family.  The twins were born in early September,  so a royal blue sapphire (the birthstone for September) was the ideal center stone.  As side stones,  two brilliant diamonds,  one for each baby,  were the perfect pair.  Andy had admired our  Blue Flame  design,  but wanted just three stones.  So we adapted the design and had our platinum smith hand-create the ring.

Congratulations to the proud parents of their two new charges!


Here is what Andy has to say about working with Judi and Bijoux Extraordinaire:

Judi worked with me to design a sapphire ring with side diamonds for my wife in celebration of the birth of our twins.  The ring is awesome  -  great stones and sharp setting for a neat Art Deco look.  Moreover, working with Judi was simply the best  -  she has an engaging personal style with very professional follow through at every step.   I look forward to our next design project!
Thanks,  Andy
