Cushion Sapphire and Diamonds
| The rich blue sapphire set in this custom
created ring is a classic cushion cut. A cross between an
oval and a rectangular cut, cushions cuts feature rounded
corners and gently bowed sides. To accentuate the soft
lines of the sapphire we selected two trilliant-cut diamonds as
side stones. The ring is hand-crafted and hand-engraved in
The secret to creating a beautiful three-stone ring is to set the gemstones so there are smooth, even transitions between each of the gems. The gems should complement each other in the design without any awkward gaps or unappealing angles. The way the sapphire and two diamonds play off each other in this design is a great example. One of the advantages of hand building each of our rings is that we can precisely set and control the layout of the gemstones.
The ring is beautifully hand engraved with a classic chevron or wheat pattern. The engraved design decorates the outer surfaces of the ring and the upper and lower galleries of the settings. Hand engraving this ring took a master engraver several days to complete. For an additional touch of elegance, we milgrained the edges of the band to create a fine bead-like pattern.
A deep, blue mountain lake is brought to mind by the color and shape of the sapphire. The two trilliant diamonds are reminiscent of sparkling cascades flowing toward the brilliant platinum shoulders of the ring. The sapphire and diamonds create a wonderful trilogy of sparkling gems.
Viewing the ring from the side you can see the care with which it was crafted. Note the sturdy prongs which secure the sapphire and diamonds and the depth of the engraving. Though the ring was hand crafted, it is beautifully executed. The ring is symmetric and balanced throughout its circumference and from every angle. These are all signs of a master platinum smith and engraver who took great pride in creating this ring.
A fine jewel is not complete without the hallmark of the maker and precious metal marks. Each of our hand-crafted rings is signed with our registered maker's mark ("BEL" for Bijoux Extraordinaire) and the precious metal mark ("PLAT" for 95% pure platinum). These marks are your assurance of exceptional craftsmanship, innovative design and lasting beauty.

|It is common practice for gem cutters to heat sapphires to improve their color and appearance. You should assume that all Sapphires have been heat treated unless the seller specifically guarantees otherwise. We believe the sapphire set in this ring has been heat treated.|
