Concave Faceted Yellow Sapphire Ring

Yellow Sapphire Hidden Treasures!

A scintillating concave-faceted Yellow Sapphire is the center stone of this hand-crafted platinum ring.  In a concave-faceted gemstone the normally flat facets of the pavilion are slightly cupped or curved inward.  This creates a gemstone with great brilliance and dazzling color.

We call this ring design "Hidden Treasures," because just beneath the center stone two small diamonds are hidden beneath the cross rungs of the setting.  We love to create jewels with hidden secrets and special accents.

The cushion-cut Sapphire is a bright lemon yellow (the Sapphire looks a little dark in the above pictures).  It is set in elegant tapered prongs that gracefully rise up from the base of the mounting.  The shoulders of the ring are crafted with concave surfaces that sweep upward to meet the Yellow Sapphire.  This ring is masterfully hand crafted in platinum and 18kt yellow gold.

Beneath the shoulders of the ring on each side of the small diamonds we set small circles of yellow gold.  For an added touch of elegance,  the edges of the shoulders, prongs and cross rungs were milgrained to create a bead-like pattern.

Also note the thickness of the band throughout its circumference.  This ring was crafted to last a lifetime and give many years of joy.

Creating a beautiful,  elegant jewel that is also well constructed is the true test of a jeweler's artistry and skill.  Here you can see how carefully the underside of this ring has been crafted.  Note the sturdy setting that cradles the Sapphire,  the smooth finish of the inner surfaces,  and the crisp even edges along the band.  In short, the underside of this ring is as beautifully made as the top.

No fine jewel is complete without the registered hallmark of the maker and precious metal marks indicating purity.  In this close up you can see the registered maker's mark for Bijoux Extraordinaire ("BEL") and the precious metal mark ("18K") for the 18 karat gold.  The opposite side of the band is marked "900PT" for the purity of the platinum.
