Tanzanite in a Gold and Platinum Ring

18kt gold and platinum ring with a 2 carat tanzanite.

Tanzanite Temptation!

A beautiful tanzanite rests in a garden of platinum flowers,  trailing leaves and yellow golden tendrils.  The artistry of this ring is matched by the mastery of the craftsmanship and the beauty of the materials.

The tanzanite weighs  2.17 carats and is a rich violet blue color.  To either side of the cushion-cut tanzanite a platinum flower with trailing leaves sweeps down the shoulders of the ring.  At the center of each flower is a round brilliant-cut diamond.

From the side you can see the platinum setting that securely holds the tanzanite.  The arrangement of the prongs  - two at each corner of the tanzanite -  is known as a "French double setting."  Appropriately,  a platinum fleur de lis blossoms between the two outer prongs.

Also note the tight curls sculpted into the yellow gold supporting the platinum setting.  The gold curls are reminiscent of sinuous vines creeping beneath the flowers!


Close up of platinum floral accents.
This close-up shows the naturalistic flowers and cascade of leaves sculpted in platinum that flow over the shoulders of the ring.  At the center of the flower heads a small round brilliant diamond is bezel set in platinum.

The ring is gracefully tapered from the top to the bottom.  The taper gently draws your eye to the center tanzanite,  while also creating a ring that fits comfortably on your finger.

Also note the bead-like border along the gold and platinum edges of the ring.  This bead-like pattern is known as milgraining and adds an extra touch of elegance.

The small, elegant details of this ring are why we call it Tanzanite Temptation!



Matching gold and platinum band.

There is a matching band for this striking ring.  The band features chased platinum flowers and three brilliant diamonds.  Like the ring,  the gold and platinum edges of the band are milgrained.  The band is available in  18kt yellow gold with platinum accents (as shown here) or in all yellow gold.  Both versions are equally striking.

Gemstone Notes:

It is common practice for gem cutters to heat tanzanite to improve the gem's color and appearance.  You should assume that all tanzanites have been heat treated unless the seller specifically guarantees otherwise.  We believe the tanzanite set in this ring has been heat treated.
