This deco design is reminiscent of a classic estate piece from the 1940’s. Many pieces in our vintage, estate line were inspired by the magnificent and intricate designs by world renowned designer to the stars, Harry Winston.
The beautiful face of the ring measures approximately 5/8 tall and wide in an oval shape. It is set with 20 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 oval halo of 20 spinel baguettes frame in a 7mm 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.
The whole design is framed by an oval halo border of just pver 30 round “diamonds”, that even extend down the very front portion of the right of the ring shank.
The setting is sterling silver that has been sealed in rhodium-platinum to resist tarnishing when cared for properly.
