Radiant-Cut Sapphire and Diamonds
in Hand-Engraved Ring

Secret Garden!

A majestic ring set with a beautiful Fancy Violet sapphire.  The bold design of the ring is hand crafted in platinum,  richly engraved with flowers and scrolls,  and accented with sparkling diamonds.  This ring is a miniature masterpiece that reminds us of a secret enchanted garden.

The striking sapphire we selected for this ring has a color-shift affect.  In day light the gemstone appears bluer and in artificial light it is more purple.


We work with some of the finest hand engravers in the country.  Each is a master of the art and works in a unique style.  The engraver of this ring created a wonderful flower and scroll design that flows around the circumference of the ring towards engraved flowers just beneath the sapphire.  The flowers are set with two sparkling diamonds.

This style of engraving is known as "relief engraving."  The engraver works carefully to remove small bits of metal allowing the design to emerge in high relief.  The background was then given a stippled finish and darkened to further highlight the floral elements.  This type of engraving is very time consuming,  but the results are worth the effort!



Along the sides of the ring you can see the vine-like pattern that follows the circumference of the band.  The leaf-like scroll is repeated on the outer face of the sapphire's bezel setting.

Note the sturdy thickness of the band as it tapers slightly towards its base.  The quality and thickness of the band protects the engraving and ensures many years of lasting beauty and enjoyment.  This ring was made to last several generations and become a family heirloom.

Examining the inside of the ring you can see the care with which it was crafted.  The walls of the bezel setting and the ring's band are thick and sturdy offering protection to the sapphire and the engraved sides of the ring.  The elements of the ring are symmetrically placed and the inner surfaces smooth and even.  Beneath each diamond are small á jouré holes.  The true sign of a master craftsman is care paid to the small details and the hidden parts of a jewel.

As with all the jewels we create,  this ring displays Bijoux Extraordinaire's registered hallmark  ("BEL").  The precious metal stamp for platinum ("PLAT") is stamped on the opposite inside wall of the band.  These hallmarks are your assurance of exceptional design,  craftsmanship and beauty.
