Trillium Sapphire in Engraved
Platinum Ring

Platinum engraved ring with trillium sapphire.

Sapphire Solitaire!

A blue sapphire,  the cool elegance of platinum,  and beautiful hand engraving come together to create this striking solitaire ring.  The sapphire is trillium cut and weighs 1.27 carats.  The ring was hand crafted in platinum and each surface meticulously hand engraved to create the elegant sparkle.

The trillium sapphire is held by three platinum prongs set above the beautifully hand engraved band.  The shoulders of the ring gently sweep upward and are slightly pinched inward,  creating a cathedral-like affect as the band rises to the sapphire.

The top and sides of the band,  as well as the setting,  are meticulously hand-engraved with a dramatic chevron pattern.  In the shop we call this style of engraving  "Woodstock's feet,"  because the pattern reminds us of the tracks left by Snoopy's friend in the snow.  For an additional touch of elegance,  the platinum edges of the ring are finely milgrained.

Viewing the ring from the side,  you can see the symmetry of the design and the precision with which this hand-crafted ring was created.   Note the thickness of the band throughout its circumference and the depth and crispness of the hand-engraving.  All signs of a master craftsman who took great care and pride in his or her work.

In fact,  creating this ring involved three different craftsmen,  each an expert in his specialty.  First, the basic form and shape of the ring was hand crafted by a master platinum smith who took special care to assure that the setting perfectly fit the trillium sapphire.  Next an expert engraver meticulously hand engraved the platinum surfaces of the ring and milgrained the edges with a bead-like pattern.  Finally,  the sapphire was precisely set by a master gem setter.

As with all Bijoux jewels,  the inside of this ring is finished as nicely as the top.  The underside of the ring is crisply finished,  symmetrical and beautifully polished.  Also note the Bijoux Extraordinaire hallmark  ("BEL")  and the platinum metal mark  ("PLAT"),  your assurance of quality, craftsmanship and beauty.
