Bellarri "Romantica" 18K White Gold & Citrine

With all the "Romantica" pieces we've carried over the years, we've never had anything like this. Made with solid 18K white gold, it features 3 large citrines - 5.00 carats total - that feature a very unusual laser cut underneath. Yes, the stones are faceted on top with an elongated diamond shaped faceting pattern, but that's not the highlight. Down below, the main facets are actually wide cuts - literally - into the underside of the citrines, like looking at a map of Canyonlands in Utah. The canyon cuts underneath create a "rivers of light" refraction effect, with asymmtrical river-shaped bursts of light coming through. It's hard to describe in words, and even our photos don't do a great job of showing off the effect, but as soon as you get direct sunlight into this the stones just explode with a refraction pattern like we've never seen before.

The setting itself is beautiful too, with three arched cutouts allowing you to see the culets of the citrines. And a full 27 points of diamonds decorate the top and sides of the shank.

The ring measures .45" deep (with the finger) x .8" wide (across the finger) with a .3" rise up off the finger, so it's not an intrusive design. The shank is a size 7 - actually halfway between a 7 and 7.25 - and sizing is available.
