Sapphire and Baguette Diamonds
in a Platinum Ring

Sapphire Perfection!

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

The Sapphire is a classic oval that is set with four platinum prongs in a double rung setting.  On the side,  baguette diamonds are set as snazzy accents in a style reminiscent of the Art Deco era.

Setting long, narrow baguette diamonds can be a challenge.  You want to showcase the elegant beauty and optics of the stones and also make sure the diamonds are secure and well protected.  Our favorite solution is to set the diamonds slightly recessed in the shoulders of the ring with each end secured by sturdy bar settings.  The beauty of the diamonds is seen and the stones are 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 sturdiness 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 nicely crafted under-gallery beneath the 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 small,  hidden parts of a jewel.

Name:  Sapphire Perfection!

Cost:  $5,965

Measurements:
The oval Sapphire measures  7.7 x 5.8 millimeters and weighs  1.53 carats.  The two tapered baguette diamonds weigh a total of  0.29 carats.  They are E-F color and VVS-VS clarity.  The ring is 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 also love creating rings with exotic violet, pink and purple sapphires.
