Trillium Sapphire in Engraved
Platinum Ring

Trillium sapphire and platinum engraved ring.

Sapphire Solitaire!

This beautiful engagement ring began with a solitary gemstone,  a striking trillium cut sapphire.  Our clients loved this exceptional gemstone and wanted to create an engagement ring that would showcase its beauty.

The couple loved the platinum and gold  Engraved Elegance  rings we have created and thought this style would be the perfect setting for the sapphire.  So,  we worked with them to create a hand-engraved platinum ring with a triangular setting.

The trillium sapphire is held by three platinum prongs set above a 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.

The top and sides of the band,  as well as the setting,  are meticulously hand-engraved with a dramatic chevron pattern.  In the shop we call this style of engraving  "Woodstock's feet,"  because the pattern reminds us of the tracks left by Snoopy's friend in the snow.  For an additional touch of elegance,  the platinum edges of the ring were finely milgrained.

Viewing the ring from the side,  you can see 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 crispness of the hand-engraving.  All signs of a master craftsman who took great care and pride in his or her work.

In fact,  creating this ring involved four different craftsmen,  each an expert in his specialty.  First, 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 fit the trillium sapphire.  Next an expert engraver meticulously hand engraved the platinum surfaces of the band and setting.  Then,  the sapphire was precisely set by a master gem setter.  And,  finally a fourth artisan applied the bead-like milgraining to the edges of the band and setting.

Employing four artisans to create one ring may seem excessive, but the result justifies the effort.  Our philosophy,  whether we are seeking a beautiful gemstone or custom creating a jewel,  is to always go with "the Best of the Best".  When creating a ring meant to last a lifetime,  the best craftsman should be used for each step of the ring's creation.
