Star Sapphire Ring in Platinum
with Custom-Fit Band

Star sapphire ring with matching custom-fit band crafted in platinum.

Solitary Star!

Star sapphires are wonderful,  mysterious gemstones that come alive when set in white gold or platinum.  The star effect,  known as "asterism,"  is caused by tiny silk-like inclusions that are trapped within the sapphire.  The inclusions bend light entering the sapphire and create a six ray star.

This custom ring features a violet-blue star sapphire that weighs  4.4 carats.  The sapphire is a round cabochon and is set in a handcrafted platinum bezel.

The star sapphire appears to gracefully float above a narrow band of platinum,  but from the side you can see how thick and sturdy the band actually is.  This ring is beautifully designed and meant to last a lifetime.

As with all Bijoux jewels,  the inside of this ring is finished as nicely as the top.  The underside of the bezel is crisply finished,  symmetrical and beautifully polished.  Also note the slightly flattened inner surface of the band which creates a more comfortable,  secure fit on your finger.

The bezel setting beneath the star sapphire is pierced with "half moon" cut outs.  They give the setting a more open and airy feel.  And since stars and moons are celestial siblings,  the half-moon cut outs are a perfect complement to the solitary star sapphire.

Platinum star sapphire ring with custom-fit wedding band.

We wanted to complement the striking beauty of this star sapphire ring with an equally striking band.  So, we created a custom-fit platinum band to fit snuggly beside the ring.  The surfaces of the band are highly polished and gently curved to follow the shape of the ring.  Even by itself,  the contoured band is a miniature work of sculpture!

We recently custom created a ring and wedding band in this style for a client,  Brian.  He and his fiance were very happy with the ring and custom-fit band.  Here is what Brian had to say about working with Judi and Bijoux Extraordinaire ....

At first I was hesitant about creating an engagement ring and wedding band over the Internet,  especially considering I was having the rings handmade.  However,  after corresponding with Judi Anderson via email and telephone,  I was confident that she would deliver a quality product that met my budget constraints.  I was right!

Judi and her staff made me feel at ease and her considerable knowledge about gem stones and hand crafted jewelry was impressive.  Judi was responsive to my questions and receptive to my feedback and suggestions throughout the process of designing and building the rings.  I received the rings in the mail a few days ago and they are perfect!  My new fiance couldn't be happier.  Thanks Judi!
