Sapphires and Morning Glories Ring

Sapphires and Morning Glories!

Last Spring the back wall of our garden became a vibrant cascade of lavender and white Morning Glories.  Perhaps it was the unusual Spring weather or our extra care the prior Fall.  Regardless of the cause,  the explosion of verdant foliage and glorious color inspired us to design a special ring.

In the center we set a shimmering, crystalline White (colorless) Sapphire.  As side stones we selected two trillium-cut Lavender Sapphires.  The Sapphires are set in a cruciform single bezel that surrounds the gems like a gleaming garden wall.  The ring is hand-crafted in platinum.

Along the platinum surfaces of the ring and the bezel we engraved Morning Glories and sinuous leafy vines.  The flowers and leaves were hand engraved and darkened for heightened contrast.

This style of ring can be recreated and planted with the floral engravings of your choice.  You can also choose the gemstones and precious metals.  Best of all, you never have to weed this miniature garden.

The word "sapphire" brings to mind beautiful blue gems that sparkle with shades of the summer sky.  But Sapphires are not just blue!  Sapphires are found in nearly every color of the rainbow ... from regal purples to vibrant pinks to daffodil yellows and even forest greens.  To learn more about the many colors of Sapphire, please visit the  Bijoux Library.

From the side,  you can see the sculptural form of the bezel and the way the shoulders of the ring flow into the setting.  The surfaces of the ring are polished to a mirror-like finish to enhance the engraved flowers and foliage.  Note the width and thickness of the band.  This ring was designed and crafted to last a lifetime and become a family heirloom.

Looking inside the ring you can see the exceptional craftsmanship with which the ring was crafted.  The under-bezel beneath the Sapphires is smoothly finished,  symmetrical and beautifully polished.  Our philosophy is that a fine ring should be as nicely crafted on the underside as it is on the top.



Name: Sapphires and Morning Glories!

Cost:

$7,685

Measurements:
This beautiful ring is hand-crafted in platinum.  The radiant-cut colorless Sapphire weighs 5.71 carats and measures 12.4 by 7.2 millimeters.  The two trillium-cut Lavender Sapphires weigh a total of 0.96 carats.  The ring is a finger size 6 1/2 and can be resized to fit most fingers.

Gemstone Note:
It is common practice for gem cutters to heat Sapphires to improve their color and appearance.  You should assume that all Sapphires have been heat treated unless the seller specifically guarantees otherwise.  We believe the Sapphires set in this ring have been heat treated.
