22k Ruby Sapphire Ring Ancient Style

SG$15,000.00

22k ancient style ring set with two cabochons, a 3.58ct ruby, and a 6.07ct sapphire.

The ruby is a marquise shape and the sapphire is a sugarloaf sapphire.

Both cuts are selected deliberately to build literally “on top” of this ring, inspired by a piece at a museum. Although both are rather thick cabochons, the ‘peak’ in the sugarloaf sapphire presents a comparative texture to the smooth ruby surface.

This ring is a complex architectural piece. We wanted the stones to be seen all around, from the top view to all sides, and then strangely yet beautifully, even underneath the stones.

Almost the whole of the ruby and the sapphire can be seen. About 90%.

The two gems are so brightly lit that looking from above or underneath will give you a groovy feeling, yes, a ring can be built like this. The little shapes under the bezel hold up the double bezel like beams under a bridge, the whole length of this golden bridge is travelled by the eye.

The gold work of this bridge is actually a two-level structure, the top tier occupied by the stones, the bottom tier built like a window ‘screen’ to the top tier. You look very clearly right through these two tiers, even when the ring is worn on the finger. Nothing is blocked off.

Yet the two-tiered bridge is not just to raise tall the two gems. Rather, it is to sculpt a grand piece in a somewhat primitive and straightforward way.

Under the ‘bridged’ bezel the ring shoulder is shaped like a cigar band. Look closely and you will see the shoulders are carefully domed in a controlled way to rival the natural effects of time.

Once the parts were put together, sculpting the whole was the toughest part. The gold work needed to not overpower the two gems. But this is not easy to do. Even though there is a substantial amount of hardware in the bridge, we have to keep the workmanship very fine in the gold.

From the choice of even making the ring itself, this majestic jewel is meant to be one owned by a living, free person. You can now own a piece that is in better shape than the one at the museum 🙂

We will size this ring accordingly after your order.

ps: the bird forms are actually earrings we’ve yet to complete, that will complete this ring.

One more of our prong free ring, that’s more than a prong free ring.
