This stunning engagement ring features an oval blue sapphire surrounded by a halo of bright cut set diamonds, with additional diamond accents running down the sides of the split shank. It was created for a client from Bothell, WA, who originally came into our Bellevue, WA showroom to take a look at some pieces and pick out features he liked.
He decided to go with a diamond halo, but to make the piece more unique for his bride, he had us use an oval blue sapphire as the center and adapt the halo to the shape of the stone. This combination created a truly elegant and timeless piece, and he and his fiancee were so happy with it that they came back to us for their wedding bands as well.
The stone in the center of this ring is a 2.98 carat oval sapphire with a brilliant blue fire. It’s bezel set in 18k white gold, and the stone’s color contrasts wonderfully with the silvery band as well as the sparkling white diamonds in the halo to create a truly stunning display.
Sapphires are a popular alternative to diamonds for use in engagement rings, and they can be integrated as accents or as the main stone, as in this piece. These gems are associated with hope, good fortune, and wisdom, and they naturally occur in many different shades, providing the opportunity for you to include a favorite color in your ring. They’re also nearly as hard as diamonds, and that makes them a good choice for an everyday piece like a wedding band or engagement ring. Sapphire Engagement Rings
Diamond Halo and Accents
The first feature our client knew he wanted in his ring was the diamond halo, and we shaped it to fit his stone. The oval halo perfectly frames the center sapphire, adding beautiful sparkle and helping to enhance its shine by reflecting light back up onto it. Halo Engagement Rings
Additional bright cut set diamond accents run down the shoulders of the split shank to just below where their two strands join together at about the mid-way point on the band. These are lined with a delicate milgrain beading, as are the diamonds in the halo, and this detail works to connect both sections of the ring, while simultaneously adding a bit of vintage flair.
