This stunning women’s fashion ring features a specialty cut aquamarine surrounded by a halo of diamonds and accented with hand-made filigree. It was designed for a client from Bellevue, WA, who fell in love with the center stone at one of our gemstone parties and wanted us to design the perfect piece to showcase it.
The stone that anchors this ring is a 18.04 carat vortex cut aquamarine with a delicate light blue color, and it’s held in place by a six prong palladium setting. It’s shaped like a hexagon on the outside, but when you look down at it from the top, the arrangement of the facets creates a lovely swirling pattern, which is where the cut gets its name.
Our client found this gem when she attended one of our gemstone parties, where we feature specialty cut stones from an award-winning gemstone cutter. Starting with a unique stone like this is a great way to build a special piece that will really stand out from the crowd.
The center aquamarine is completely encircled by a halo of round bright cut set diamonds, and these add wonderful sparkle to the piece, while also providing a subtle contrast to the center stone. This helps intensify the blue of the aquamarine, and it also brings a bit of vintage flair to the piece.
Initially, our client wanted us to create patterns in the metal below the setting that resembled the waves of the ocean, which she thought would go nicely with the color and cut of the stone. Eventually, she approved a solid band to add a contemporary flair to her piece.
We also explored several options throughout the process for what could go beneath the center stone, and eventually settled on this elegant filigree basket. Because our artisans complete this type of detail by hand, you have a lot of flexibility in terms of the types of shapes and patterns you can include, and that’s one great way to work something of personal significance into a design like this.
