A beautiful dainty Sapphire ring: Featuring 3 petite diamonds on each side of the Sapphire, tapering outwards to the ring shank, this is a romantic design that will match any wedding dress.
When it comes to customised pieces, exact and ideal dimensions and sizing is key in the pursuit of perfection – not for everybody or anyone else, but for the wearer.
How broad should the shank be? How large should each diamond be? Relative to the Centre Sapphire? How does the overall ring sit relative to the owner’s finger?
Design is not simply about style and looks but pulling in together aesthetics, functionality, purpose and dimensions. That is the soul and beauty of customised works of art.
She was drawn to the vivid blue of the Sapphire. Intensely saturated, yet not at all opaque and overly dark. Which is difficult to find in natural Sapphires.
A dainty sapphire engagement ring that sets this piece apart from the rest. It looks deceivingly simple yet suits its owner to a T.

In the truest sense of the word blue, how can one go wrong with such a ring? On the contrary, this is not an engagement ring. Simply, a client who appreciates a pure unheated gem, untainted by man, unrivalled in beauty. Stunning on its own, needing not much more than a simple setting of one halo of diamonds to accentuate this blue beauty.
Crafted in 18K white gold, this is truly a piece to be handed over to the next generation.
