Sapphire Dreams

ring featuring a 11.42 carat Blue Sapphire.

Once upon a time, there was a bright and beautiful woman who became a wife and mother while working smart and savvy in finance, taking charge of her life so that she could retire while her son was in college and travel around the world, exploring and listening to music with her husband and friends.

She had been dreaming of a white-hot river of diamonds flowing around her finger.

Just before she retired, we sourced 12 matching diamonds to custom-design a platinum ring holding 8.5 carats (photo below).

Did you know when matching diamonds, they need to match not only their diameter and color but also their facet proportions, symmetry, and light return?

Her retirement came, her son went off to school, then it was time to focus on creating the Blue Sapphire ring she wanted to wear with the Diamond eternity band. We had found her a superb 12 carat Sri Lankan Blue Sapphire.

The ancient Persians thought the Earth rested on a giant Blue Sapphire, whose color reflected up to color the heavens.

If that is the case, then this Sapphire is the color of heaven.

What more does she need?  Probably more paddle boarding with manatees, Jackson Browne, great food and roaming through unexplored territory.

For my client’s new Blue Sapphire ring, she wanted the shank shape to match the shape of the eternity band, when seen on the top of her finger. But, this isn’t usually the case.

Above is a look at the variety of gallery designs a 3-stone ring can take and I can design one just for you.
