Story

Turquoise has been part of the lore of jewelry since ancient times. In the 17th century no English gentleman worth his salt was considered to be well turned out without a fine turquoise stone upon his person. Nonetheless, it is the Victorian era in which turquoise became very fashionable.

Rendered in an 18k yellow gold ring, three cabochons of turquoise dance in concert with two old mine cut diamonds of an estimated .12 points each (color J-K; clarity VS1-SI1 and a total estimated diamond weight of .24 points). Sweeping across an open work golden band open claw set turquoise cabs of a brilliant aqua nestle in with a duo of fiery old mine cuts in double claw settings. The flashing contrast of the intense blue with the bright white creates a true show stopper of an antique ring.
