Simple engagement ring with 5mm round faceted green to blue Fair Trade sapphire in a bead setting. The solitaire setting blends seamlessly with the slightly rounded ring shank. 8 beads placed all around the stone hold it in place like little prongs. The ring will be carved out of wax, cast and finished in my studio in Los Angeles.
The ocean colored fair trade genuine gemstone is hand set and the ring has a mirror polished finish. The band width is about 3mm to 3.5 mm. Height above the finger about 5 mm. The faceted sapphire is 0.6 carat, 5 mm diameter. It is a AA quality gemstone and has a beautiful blue color with hints of green tones, mined in Malawi.
Sapphires come in colors from green-blue, blue-green to blue. See last two images and indicate your preference during checkout.The sapphire shown in the ring is similar to # 7 & 8. Once set in the enclosed setting, the colors will be more true to the second to last picture showing the sapphires in the tray than the last light flooded picture.
