Barion-cut Tanzanite and Diamonds
in a Custom Platinum Ring

Tanzanite Intrigue

An intriguing blue-violet barion-cut Tanzanite is showcased in this specially designed platinum ring.  The Tanzanite is accented with two heptagonal (seven sided) step-cut diamonds.  The color of the Tanzanite, the brilliance of the diamonds, and the magical reflection of the platinum combine to create a beautiful jewel.

The Tanzanite is set in a deep bezel with brightly polished platinum walls.  The bezel setting protects the Tanzanite,  while adding to the boldness of the design.  The side diamonds are burnish set in the shoulders of the ring.  Note how the shoulders rise to meet the center bezel while gently tapering towards the base of the ring.

To complete the design we pierced the bezel walls with miniature geometric windows.  Our platinum smith carefully hand cut these windows using a small hand drill and a fine abraded wire.  Pierce work is an ancient technique that requires patience, skill and time.  While most jewelry seen in jewelry stores is mass produced,  we prefer to incorporate traditional techniques and exceptional craftsmanship in our designs.

Viewing the underside of the ring you can see the sturdy thickness of the bezel walls.  Also note the smooth inner surfaces and depth of the band as it tapers towards the base of the ring.  Our platinum smith,  as always,  took care with the small, hidden details of this ring.

Most Tanzanites are heat treated to improve their color and appearance.  You should assume that all Tanzanites have been heat treated unless the seller guarantees otherwise.  We believe the Tanzanite set in this ring has been heat treated.
