Bellarri "Colors of Passion" 18K White Gold, Green Tourmaline, Peridot & White Diamond Ring

As many "Colors of Passion" Collection designs as we've had come through our doors, we've never had one of these - an R7017 style code in the peridot and green tourmaline colorway. And those of you who have been paying attention have noticed that Bellarri is designing very few pieces, if any, using peridot and/or green tourmaline the last couple of years. This is because mine closures and skyrocketing prices - 400% in the case of green tourmaline - have made some semi-precious gemstones far more expensive than they were just 5 years ago. So rings like this are harder to find, and when we do find them they're harder to pry out of dealer showcases.

It features a solid 18K yellow gold band and setting, with 6.30 carats of natural, untreated & unheated peridot and 2.00 carats of natural, unheated & untreated green tourmaline. The faceted baguettes running through the center are peridot & tourmaline, and the side hemispheres are faceted peridots.

A full 15 points / .15ct of bright white diamonds, set in rhodium over solid 18K yellow gold, decorate the edges of the setting.

The top setting measures .4" x .6" with a rise of .4" up off the finger. The ring weighs 9.3 grams and the band is a Bellarri standard size 7 with sizing service available.
