Purple Sapphire and Diamond Ring

Purple sapphire and diamond hand-crafted platinum ring.

Purple Decodence!

A sumptuous Violet-Purple Sapphire is featured in this Art Deco inspired design.  As side stones we selected trapezoid and baguette diamonds to add to the Art Deco flair.  The ring is beautifully hand crafted in platinum.

The purple Sapphire is securely held by platinum half bezels.  The trapezoid-shape diamonds are bezel set next to the Sapphire and the straight baguettes are burnish set in the shoulders of the ring.  The Sapphire is set slightly above the descending tiers of diamonds to create an elegant cascade of sparkling gems.  Because our rings are hand crafted,  we can perfectly place and position each gemstone.

Thoughts of "sapphires" bring to mind beautiful blue gems that sparkle with shades of the summer sky.  But Sapphires are not just for the blues!  Sapphires can be found in nearly every color of the rainbow .... from  regal purples to vibrant pinks to daffodil yellows and even forest greens.

Each gemstone was chosen to complement the proportions and brilliance of the others.  The ring is widest at the emerald-cut Sapphire and then tapers with the trapezoid diamonds.  The band with the burnish set diamonds is a little narrower than the outer edge trap of diamonds.  The symmetry and lay out of the gemstones give the ring a nice Art Deco flow.

From the side,  you can see the width and thickness of the band.  The surfaces of the band and settings are polished to a mirror-like finish.  This ring was crafted to last a lifetime and become a family heirloom.

Looking inside the ring you can see the beauty of the design and uncompromising craftsmanship with which the ring was crafted.  Note the cut-outs beneath each gemstone and the symmetrical, smooth edges of the under gallery.  Our philosophy is that a fine jewel should be as nicely crafted on the underside as it is on the top.

Measurements:
This beautiful ring is hand-crafted in platinum.  The emerald-cut Purple Sapphire weighs 1.94 carats and measures 7.7 by 5.1 millimeters.  The two trapezoid step-cut diamonds weigh a total of 0.48 carats.  They are D color and VVS2 clarity.  The two straight baguette diamonds weigh a total of 0.14 carats.  The baguette diamonds are D-E color and VS1-2 clarity.  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 sapphire set in this ring has been heat treated.


We love creating rings featuring the many beautiful colors of Sapphire.
