Striking Sapphire and Diamond
We wanted to create a ring that would exemplify the cool elegance of Art Deco design. So we selected a pastel, steely blue Sapphire to beautifully complement the cool sheen of platinum. As side stones we chose six matched straight Baguette diamonds. The ring is handcrafted in platinum.
The Sapphire is a rounded oval that weighs 3.6 carats. The Sapphire is set in a partial bezel that opens to the diamond-set shoulders of the ring. The setting and Sapphire create the appearance of a crystalline blue lake cascading over the shoulders of the ring.
One of the challenges in creating this ring was perfectly setting the six graduated Baguette diamonds. The goal was to set the diamonds so that they formed a smooth adamantine surface that you could almost skate across. By hand crafting the settings we were able to perfectly place each diamond and adapt the settings to each stone. The result is a ring of exceptional beauty and lasting quality.
From the side you can further see the careful tiered placement of the Sapphire and diamonds. The bezel and box settings are sturdily crafted to protect and showcase the gemstones. Also note the thickness of the band throughout its circumference and its gentle taper towards the base of the ring.
You should always carefully examine the underside of a fine jewel. Here you can see the sturdy under-gallery beneath the Sapphire and diamonds and the smoothly polished, crisp inner surfaces. Beneath each gemstone is a small window that follows the shape of the gemstone. This ring is a small, beautiful work of Art Deco sculpture.
As with all the jewels we create, this ring displays the Bijoux Extraordinaire registered hallmark ("BEL") and a precious metal stamp ("PT950") for the purity of the platinum. These marks are your assurance of exceptional craftsmanship and lasting beauty.
