Antique Sugarloaf Lapis Ring
Large and dramatic jewelry is once again the mainstay of the fashion of today. Over the top rings have taken their rightful place on the hands of many a current star of stage and screen. You also can walk the red carpet in this ultra-chic antique ring of 14k rose gold.
Lapis lazuli is cut in a sugarloaf cabochon resulting in a weight of 11.5 carats. The “pain de sucre” cabochon has a subtle four-sided pyramidal configuration which is polished in such a manner as to have the table of the stone coming to a smooth point at the very apex and display a glossy surface. This particular cut handsomely displays the flecks of gold within the true and even deep blue coloration of the very fine lapis.
The gem is set in a rectangular bezel with clipped corners and then accented with a corded rope border. The four clipped corners are each underscored with a gold orb placed in the center. The shoulders are appointed with a slightly arched appliqué of scrolling rose gold open work almost resembling Gothic fretwork of yesteryear. The back of the shank is a light golden colored yellow gold.
