Sapphire and Diamonds Engraved Ring

Sapphire Criss-Cross!

Several years ago we purchased a beautiful  sapphire estate ring.  The ring was crafted in platinum with flowing prongs that crossed beneath the sapphire as they swept upward.  The estate ring quickly sold to a couple in Cambridge, Massachusetts,  but the design of the ring continued to intrigue us.  So we asked our platinum smith to create a new ring in this antique style.

The ring is hand-crafted in platinum and features a bright blue sapphire that weighs 1.78 carats.  To either side of the sapphire,  three brilliant diamonds are bead-set along the shoulders of the ring.  The diamonds are framed in box settings with milgrained edges.  Beneath the three diamonds,  the ring is engraved with a stylized bell flower pattern and the edges milgrained.

The sapphire is securely held by four platinum prongs with grooved tips.  The prongs dramatically sweep upward from the engraved sides of the ring with an array of sparkling diamonds.  A total of  36 small diamonds are bead set in these sweeping prongs.  Beneath the prongs,  the sides of the ring are engraved and the edges milgrained.

Also note the thickness of the ring's band throughout its circumference.  At the base we left a small section unengraved so that the ring can be easily resized.  This ring was made to last several generations and become a treasured heirloom.

Examining the inside of the ring you can see the sturdy thickness and graceful flow of the prongs which protect the sapphire.  The undersurfaces of the ring are smooth and polished.  The sign of a true master craftsman is that he or she finishes the hidden parts of a jewel with the same care as the topside.

As with all the jewels we create,  this ring displays the Bijoux Extraordinaire registered hallmark  ("BEL")  and a precious metal stamp ("PLAT" for platinum).  These hallmarks are your assurance of superior quality,  craftsmanship and beauty.

Name:  Sapphire Criss-Cross!

Cost: Although this sapphire ring has sold,  we feature many more beautiful rings in the Sapphire Ring Gallery.

Measurements:
The rounded oval sapphire weighs  1.78 carats.  The 42 round brilliant diamonds (6 on the shoulders and 36 in the prongs)  weigh a total of  0.385 carats.  The diamonds are E - F color and VS1 - VS2 clarity.  This 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.
