Trillium Sapphire in Engraved
Platinum Ring

Sapphire Sparkle!

A vibrant blue sapphire,  the cool elegance of platinum,  and beautiful hand engraving come together to create this striking ring.  The solitaire sapphire was expertly faceted by an award-winning cutter to give the gem extra sparkle and richness.  The ring is hand crafted in platinum and each surface meticulously hand engraved to add to the elegant sparkle.

The striking sapphire was cut by an innovative and talented gem cutter,  who has mastered the difficult art of concave faceting.  When cutting the sapphire,  he slightly cupped and curved the normally flat facets.  These concave facets create a gemstone with greater brilliance and dazzling color than ordinary flat-faceted sapphires.

The sapphire weighs  2.1 carats and is held by three platinum prongs set above the beautifully hand engraved band.  The shoulders of the ring gently sweep upward and are slightly pinched inward,  creating a cathedral-like affect as the band rises to the sapphire.

Viewing the ring from the rear,  shows the symmetry of the design and the precision with which this handcrafted ring was created.   Note the thickness of the band throughout its circumference and the depth and detail of the hand-engraving.  All signs of master craftsmen who took great care and pride in their work.

In fact,  creating this ring involved four different craftsmen,  each an expert in his specialty.  First,  the gem cutter shaped and faceted the beautiful trillium sapphire.  Then, the basic form and shape of the ring was hand crafted by a master platinum smith who took special care to assure that the setting perfectly matched the gemstone.  Next an expert engraver meticulously hand engraved the platinum surfaces of the ring and milgrained the edges with a bead-like pattern.  Finally,  the sapphire was precisely set by an expert gem setter.  Involving four different artists to create one ring may seem excessive,  but we believe the result speaks for itself !

As with all Bijoux jewels,  the inside of this ring is finished as nicely as the top.  Note that the underside of the ring is smoothly finished,  with crisp symmetrical edges and a beautiful polish.  You can also see the Bijoux Extraordinaire's registered hallmark  ("BEL")  and the platinum precious metal mark  ("PLAT"),  your assurance of quality, craftsmanship and beauty.

Gemstone Note:
It is common practice to heat sapphires to improve their color and appearance.  You should assume that all sapphires have been heat treated unless the seller specifically guarantees otherwise.  We believe the sapphire set in this ring has been heat treated.

This style of ring can also be created with a matching wedding band.
