Padparadscha Sapphire Ring
I spent a couple of weeks just staring at this exquisite Padparadscha Sapphire. Expertly cleaned up in terms of its cut by Doug Menadue at Bespoke Gems, it is now shining in all its fiery glory amongst smaller Padparadscha Sapphires, which mind you, was like finding a needle in the haystack of the world. But I found them! And look at the fiery celebration they create.
These stunning Sapphires are set in a combination of 18K Rose Gold and 18K Yellow Gold, to highlight the subtle but beautiful sunset colourbanding the main stone exhibits in the upper right corner. If you look carefully you’ll see it.
Padparadscha Elongated Cushion Cut set in 18K Rose and Yellow Gold with smaller Padparadscha Sapphires set around it in Signature Carla Maxine Cluster Hybrid Style.
I couldn’t recommend Carla more highly!
Carla worked with me to design a ring to house a beautiful padparadscha sapphire that I collected in my travels in Sri Lanka. Carla is a wonderful communicator and engaged with me during every stage of the design process, from initial concept sketches right through to the creation of a 3D plastic printout of the final design so that I could have a sense of how the ring would look on my finger. She was also able to source smaller padparadscha sapphires to complement the central stone.
The final product is absolutely stunning, a real heirloom piece.
