Rainbow Hematite and Gemstones
in a Custom 18kt Gold Ring

Rainbow hematite ring set with sapphires, tourmalines and tsavorites.

Rainbow Rapture!

A shimmering Rainbow Hematite set in a rich 18kt gold bezel is the focal point of this striking ring.  On each side of the Hematite,  we channel set a graduated line of colorful gemstones,  from hot pink tourmaline to velvety purple sapphire and finally lush green tsavorite.  The faceted gemstones brilliantly complement the rainbow of colors displayed in the Hematite.

The Hematite is slightly recessed in a gold bezel with a double rim.  We created a  "shadow box-like"  setting for the hematite to better protect this shimmering gem.  The bold bezel contrasts with the airy look of the split band set with faceted gemstones.  The band is brightly polished and crafted with a half-round profile.

This side view displays the thick,  sturdy walls of the bezel setting,  creating a two-tiered effect,  and the graceful taper of the band as it sweeps around towards the base.  The thickness of the band at its base ensures a lifetime of wear and enjoyment.

The underside of the ring is beautifully finished and polished.  The underbezel beneath the Hematite is crisp and smooth.  The channels beneath the faceted gemstones are symmetrical and evenly polished.

At Bijoux Extraordinaire we believe that a fine jewel should be finished just as nicely on the underside as it is on the top.  It is the little details that make a jewel truly special!


Bijoux Extraordinaire hallmark (BEL).

All jewelry should be stamped with the maker's mark and the purity of the precious metals.  This photograph displays our registered hallmark (BEL).  The precious metal mark for 18kt gold is on the opposite side of the ring.  These marks are your assurance of fine quality,  heirloom value and imaginative design.



Name:  Rainbow Rapture!

Cost: $1,875

Measurements:
This ring is hand-crafted in 18kt gold.  The Rainbow Hematite is  13.8 millimeters by  9.5 millimeters.  The pink tourmalines,  purple sapphires and tsavorite garnets are graduated in size from  3.5 millimeters to  2.8 millimeters.  The ring is finger size  6 1/2,  but can be resized to fit most fingers.


Gemstone Notes:
Rainbow Hematite is usually found in Brazil as thin plates that are often backed with jasper or other quartz material to increase the gemstone's strength and durability.  The Rainbow Hematite set in this ring has been backed.

Sapphires and pink tourmalines are often heat-treated to improve their color and appearance.  We believe the sapphires and tourmalines set in this ring have been heat treated.
