(item # 101530)(price does not include center stone)
This stunning women’s fashion ring features a round blue topaz prong set in black plated sterling silver with black diamond accents. The design was developed for a client from Mercer Island, WA, who found this beautiful stone at one of our gemstone parties and asked us to build the perfect ring to display it.
The central stone in this ring is a 30.26 carat fancy cut round blue topaz with a shimmering blue-green color that’s really brought to life by the specialty cut. The six prong setting holding it in place is made of sterling sliver that’s been black rhodium plated to give it a sleek, dark grey color, and this really contrasts nicely with the cool blue of the stone.
These prongs needed to be extra strong to hold such a large, gorgeous gem, so we started them each as two strands at the base of the setting and had them run parallel before coming together as they neared the widest point of the topaz. This not only provided the right amount of structural stability, but it also created a lovely and ornate basket for the gem to sit in.
Black Diamond Accents
Both shank shoulders hold a row of channel set round black diamonds, and these stand out just enough from the dark metal band to create the perfect finishing touch to this wonderful piece. Black diamonds are beautiful, and they represent strength, everlasting love, and wisdom, all of which are wonderful sentiments to include in any piece.
Specialty Cut Gemstones
If you’d like to create your own unique piece of fine custom jewelry but don’t know quite where to begin, you may want to take a look at some specialty cut gemstones. We regularly hold gemstone parties where we feature gems shaped by an award-winning gemstone cutter, which means you’ll see things that are not generally available on the market. Ask us about Custom-Cut Gems!
The type of jewelry you want to make will dictate to a certain extent the kind of stone you’ll want to use. But the best thing about choosing a specialty cut gem is that you can be sure the piece you end up with will truly be one-of-a-kind.
