This stunning women’s fashion ring features an emerald cut blue sapphire channel set in the center, with ruby, diamond, and custom filigree accents on the black ceramic-plated band. It was created for a client from Wetumpka, AL, who reached out to us online for help designing the perfect setting for her sapphire.
She shared photos of rings she liked with us, as well as her ideas about how she wanted her piece to turn out. We provided her with various options to achieve the type of look she was going for, and after a few revisions in the custom design process, she approved the design seen here to move into production.
The emerald cut sapphire at the center of this piece is 19.11 carats, and it’s rich blue color is only intensified by the black ceramic plating on the sterling silver it’s set in. The channel setting holding it in place serves to protect the stone while also providing a structural framework for the elegant organic filigree that fills the space on the shoulders of the split shank.
The client initially asked for a partial bezel setting, but after seeing our first round of designs, she inquired about ways the sides could be made to look less “industrial”. We presented her with several options to accomplish this, including using a prong setting for the center stone, or using a setting style like this. She fell in love with the way the filigree in this example came up around the edge of the stone, and so she opted to move in this direction.
Filigree and Gemstone Accents
The filigree design was something the client spent a lot of time researching as well. She provided us with several examples of designs she liked, and we incorporated elements of these into the flowing pattern seen here. She also wanted some small diamonds and rubies worked into the filigree to add just a bit of sparkle, and we were able to accommodate this request. Design Your Own Ring
The color of the band was another element that was very important to the client. She wanted to make sure it was as dark as possible, and we informed her that the best way for us to accomplish this was to apply black ceramic plating to a sterling silver ring. She was happy with this option, and our artisans were able to achieve a smooth, even application of the ceramic plating as the finishing touch on a truly exquisite piece.
