Hand Engraved Platinum Ring
Sapphires are not just for the blues! This hand-crafted platinum ring features a lush Fancy Purple Sapphire. The colorful trillium-cut Sapphire weighs 1.74 carats.
The ring is beautifully hand engraved with flowing, romantic scrolls. It is an elegant variation of our Solitaire Scrolls design.
The hue of this stunning Sapphire is a deep reddish purple with dancing flashes of red. It is securely set in a three-prong setting. Because we hand crafted the ring, the setting perfectly complements the shape and size of the Sapphire.
The richly engraved scrolls flow down the shoulders and sides of the ring. The edges of the band and setting are milgrained with a small bead-like pattern for an added touch of elegance.
The shoulders of the ring narrow as they rise up to meet the Sapphire. This creates a cathedral-like setting for the gemstone and keeps the ring from looking heavy or blocky. Also note the engraving on the gallery of the setting.
Although the narrowing shoulders presented a challenge, our engraver beautifully continued the flowing scrolls in the smaller space. The talent of our engraver is apparent in the small details.
Swirling scrolls flow gracefully along the circumference of the band like rolling waves along a beach. Hand engraving a ring like this requires an artist's eye for detail, a steady hand and several days on the jeweler's bench.
The triangular shape of the Sapphire, its rich purple color and the sinuous engraved scrolls combine to create a wonderfully romantic jewel that is sure to captivate all, even from afar.
In this side view you can see the symmetry of the design and the care with which the ring was created. Note the thickness of the band throughout its circumference and the sturdiness of the setting. This ring was designed to wear beautifully for several generations.
The underside of the ring is crafted with the same attention to detail as the top. Notice the the crisp, symmetrical window beneath the Sapphire and the highly polished surfaces.
All of our rings are stamped with our registered Hallmark ("BEL") and the purity of the precious metals ("PLAT" for this ring). These marks are your assurance of exceptional craftsmanship, inspired design and lasting beauty.
