This deco design is reminiscent of classic estate pieces from the 1940’s, done by world renowned jewelry designer to the stars, Harry Winston. The beautiful face of the ring measures approximately 5/8 tall and 3/4” wide. It is set with 16 spinel baguettes in a deep sapphire blue color. What is a spinel?….. It is a semi-precious, natural mineral that has a hardness scale of 8 on the Mohs Scale (real diamonds are a 10). Spinel minerals are isometric oxides composed of iron, zinc, magnesium, and trace elements which give them their destined coloring. The cobalt blue color in this ring is the rarest color of all.
The round halo of 16 spinel baguettes frame in a 5mm, half-carat round synthetic “diamond” in the center that is set in a beaded bezel, which is a classic setting that you’ll find in many fine genuine jewelry pieces from estates.
There are also 2 more spinel baguettes on each side of the ring and the whole design is framed by a halo border of just under 60 tiny round “diamonds”.
The setting is sterling silver that has been sealed in rhodium-platinum to resist tarnishing when cared for properly.
