The ring band is 3mm wide and has been given a fine hammered finish that provides a beautiful contrast to the mirror finish gold bezel. The band as shown in the example was done in palladium, but can be ordered in other metal options. Please select from the drop down menu. The bezel as shown is made in 18k yellow gold but can also be made in rose gold (images #9-13) or white metals for either a contrasting or tone-in-tone look.

The sapphires are sourced from Columbia Gem House, a true pioneer in the fair trade gem marketplace. Fair Trade Gems are closely tracked from mine to market to ensure that every gem has been handled according to these strict protocols. Using ethically sourced gemstones with recycled metals makes this an Eco-conscious engagement ring.
