Emerald-cut Sapphire and Diamond Ring
| What better way to showcase a spectacular
emerald-cut sapphire than with sparkling trilliant diamonds set
in a handcrafted platinum ring. The sapphire is a rich,
saturated blue that is reminiscent of the Aegean Sea in
moonlight. It is so gorgeous that the above image doesn't
quite do it justice!
This striking sapphire was fashioned by the gem cutter as an elongated emerald-cut with nicely beveled corners. The sapphire weighs 3.3 carats and measures 9.7 by 5.4 millimeters.
We selected the sapphire from a field of many, because of the beauty of its color and the elegance of its shape. It is perfectly complemented by the brilliance of the trilliant diamonds and the coolness of the platinum. The two diamonds were carefully matched with E-F color and VS clarity. When set next to the sapphire, they create a dazzling array of color and sparkle.
Our platinum smith is a talented artist who works with uncompromising attention to detail. In this view you can see the care with which he set the gemstones. The sapphire is held by four sturdy prongs that gently taper as they approach the under-gallery. This creates a sturdy setting without obscuring the beauty of the gemstone. The trilliant diamonds are set with "v"-style prongs that nicely complement the shape of the diamonds and protect their sharp points.
From the side you can see the tiered placement of the sapphire and diamonds. One of the secrets to creating a beautiful three-stone ring is finding the perfect relative heights and angles for the gemstones. The gemstones should flow across the top of the finger in a dazzling display. You do not want the setting to appear boxy or crowded. Nor should there be gaps between the gemstones. By hand crafting this ring, we were able to make sure that the gemstones are perfectly set..
You should always examine the underside of a fine jewel as closely as the top. Here you can see the sturdy under-gallery that securely holds and protects the sapphire and diamonds. Note that the inner surfaces are smoothly polished and the edges crisp and even. It is in the small, hidden details that true craftsmanship is often revealed.
The sapphire has a wondrous and captivating color that
