Filigree Ring with Tanzanite and Diamonds

Filigree ring with tanzanite and diamonds.

The Age of Elegance!

A wonderful filigree ring with a velvety violet-blue tanzanite.  This lovely ring was created by two brothers whose family has made beautiful filigree rings since the early 1900's.   Each of their jewels draws upon a 100-year tradition of artistry and craftsmanship to which they add their own imaginative ideas.

The tanzanite is a rich blue color with flashes of violet.  It weighs just under one carat and is an antique cushion cut.  Surrounding the tanzanite are finely chased flowers crafted in platinum and set with four small diamonds.  The platinum and diamonds add just the right dash of sparkle against the warmth of the 18kt gold.

What immediately strikes us about this ring is the beauty of its design.  Then,  as you examine it more closely,  you appreciate the uncompromising quality of the craftsmanship and the artisan's attention to detail.  In particular,  note the inlaid flowers crafted in platinum,  the free flow of the open gallery work and the manner in which the prongs have been unobtrusively incorporated into the design.

This side view shows the details of the ornately carved and pierced filigree work.  This ring will flow gracefully around the finger and has a thick base that assures long lasting,  comfortable wear.

A companion band in gold and platinum is shown below.   Crafted with the same artistry and attention to detail as the ring,  this matching band creates a striking bridal set.

Cost: This beautiful 18kt gold and platinum ring has sold.  We would love to create a similar ring for you with the gemstones and precious metals of your choice.  The ring without the centerstone costs approximately $5,900,  while the matching band is $1,675.  To discuss design options,  gemstones and costs,  please give us a call  (603 624-8672)  or  send us an email.

Measurements:
The center tanzanite weighs  0.94 carats and is a  6 millimeters square cushion cut.  The four small diamonds weigh  0.04 carats in total.  This ring can be resized to fit most fingers.

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.


This ring can be created with the center stone of your choice.  If you love colored gemstones,  we have the flavor for you!  How about a red spinel,  sapphire,  tsavorite garnet,  rubellite tourmaline,  ruby or emerald?  Or maybe a diamond?  They all look fabulous as a center stone in this design!  To discuss design options and gemstones,  please give us a call  (603 624-8672)  or  send us an email.
