Purple Sapphire and Baguette Diamonds
in a Custom Platinum Ring

Plum Perfect!

A luscious Purple Sapphire accented with two tapered baguette diamonds in a hand-crafted platinum ring.  The rich plum color of the sapphire is the perfect complement to the cool elegance of the platinum and diamonds.

The sapphire is a rounded oval that is set with four platinum prongs in a double rung setting.  The baguette diamonds are set as snazzy side accents in a style reminiscent of the 1930s and 1940s.

Setting long, narrow baguette diamonds can be a challenge.  You want to showcase the elegant shape and optics of the stones,  but you also want the them to be secure and protected.  The traditional solution is to slightly recess the diamonds into the shoulders of the ring and to secure them with sturdy bar settings at each end.  The beauty of the diamonds is seen and the stones well protected.

From the side,  you can see the slightly raised shoulders of the ring and the thickness of the band as it tapers gently towards the base.  The thickness of the band helps protect the gemstones and ensures lasting beauty.  We create our rings to last not just a lifetime,  but several generations.

Inside the ring you can see the sturdy under gallery beneath the Purple Sapphire.  Also note the smooth, symmetrical cut-outs beneath the tapered baguette diamonds.  The sign of a true master craftsman is the care taken with the hidden parts of a jewel.
