Blue Moonstone Ring

$13,875.00

Exquisite 8.34 ct cabochon Blue Moonstone set in platinum 950 with 18 karat gold bezeling the moonstone and 4 square baguette blue sapphires.  Each side has 20 brilliant cut diamonds in pave* style totaling 1.86 total diamond weight. Current size is 6 1/2 with square bottom shank to prevent shifting.  If I never sold this piece, I would not be disappointed.  The rare blue moonstone cannot be replicated and has only one home on the tiny island of Sri Lanka.  This piece is hand crafted and engraved with a laser code signifying Richard Krementz who passed away in November 2012.  He was a perfectionist and scoured the world for the finest gems.   I am so fortunate to have a Krementz piece to share.  “It all starts with a beautiful gem.” ~Richard Krementz

Nugget Notes

*When the surface of any diamond ring seems to be covered with clusters of tiny diamonds, the technique is called Pavé which literally means paved. This moniker is entirely appropriate given that the surface looks like a typical paved street of cobblestones.

These smalls diamonds are individually set by hand in tiny holes that have been carved out of the ring shank. The diamonds are set in rows, so that they occupy the entire space of the diamond ring. The better the cut quality of the diamonds, the better the brilliance and beauty of the completed diamond ring.

Each tiny diamond, often weighing just a few points in carat weight, is traditionally cut with 58 facets and set in its hole. Small metal bits from the top of the ring are pushed over the diamond to secure the stone in place.

The Pavé technique is a demanding technique that is successfully accomplished in the hands of a patient and extremely skilled diamond jeweler.

The price and cost of any pave diamond setting is largely influenced by the incredible amount of hand labor that goes into the production of a jewelry item of this nature.The better the skill of the jeweler, the better the overall design will look, with a seamless beauty of dazzling diamonds throughout.
