Star Sapphire and Diamond Ring

La Lune!

Star Sapphires are wonderful, mysterious gemstones that come alive when seen with a single light source such as the sun.  The star effect,  known as "asterism,"  is a natural optical phenomenon caused by tiny needle-shape silk-like inclusions trapped within the Sapphire.  The inclusions bend light entering the Sapphire and create a six-ray star.

This hand-crafted platinum ring features a stunning blue Star Sapphire that weighs 4.92 carats.  The Star Sapphire is accented with two crescent moon brilliant-cut Diamonds and six small round brilliant Diamonds channel set along the shoulders of the ring.   We matched the crescent moon Diamonds to the size and shape of the Star Sapphire to create a perfectly contoured layout.

A final touch to this striking design is a soft satin finish polished on the tops and sides of the ring that emits a subtle shimmering glow complementing the star effect of the Sapphire and the dazzling array of light from the brilliant-cut Diamonds.

The Star Sapphire and crescent moon Diamonds are set in a platinum bezel that surrounds the three stones as a single unit.  The crisp, sturdy rim of platinum highlights the layout of the gemstones and there is no metal between the gems.  This is truly a masterpiece that shows off our setter's talent  -  setting gemstones in this fashion requires exceptional skill.

The six round brilliant-cut Diamonds are channel set in a crisp, even line,  as if dancing along the shoulders of the ring.  We also polished the inside of the band with a slightly flattened surface for a comfortable fit on your finger.  This ring is beautifully designed and expertly crafted.

Note the sturdy bezel walls that appear to flow out of the graceful platinum band.  The outer surface of the band is softly rounded creating a smooth, clean look that accentuates the shape of the bezel setting and the blue dome of the Star Sapphire.

The inside of this ring is finished as nicely as the top.  The underside of the Star Sapphire's bezel setting is crisp, symmetrical and beautifully polished.  Beneath each crescent moon Diamond is a similarly shaped underbezel.  At Bijoux Extraordinaire,  our philosophy is to create jewels that are beautifully finished on all sides,  even the underside.  This is the epitome of exceptional craftsmanship and attention to detail.

As with all the jewels we create,  this ring displays the Bijoux Extraordinaire registered hallmark  ("BEL").  The precious metal mark ("PLAT") for the purity of the platinum (95%) is also visible.  These hallmarks are your assurance of exceptional design,  superior craftsmanship and lasting value.
