Bellarri "Cleo" 18K Yellow Gold, Smoky Quartz, Citrine and White Diamond Ring

From Bellarri's "Cleo" Collection, this ring is a superb example of why we're always so excited to carry Bellarri jewelry - the gemstones aren't just good, they're fantastic. They're so fantastic, we actually hope customers will grab their magnifier/loupe and look at them closely. Go ahead, don't be afraid to even look at the accent stones - you'll love what you see.

It starts with a solid 18K yellow gold shank, with a fairly substantial chunky design. It's not a bulky ring at all, but there's enough thickness and width to the shank that the ring both feels and looks nicely balanced, top to bottom, with enough room for Bellarri to have some fun and create a finely carved filigree side gallery on the ring.

The center stone is beautiful 5.75 carat all-natural earth-mined chocolate-hued smoky quartz with deeply-scalloped crown and flat table plus Bellarri's signature "exploding center" Mystique Cut that gives the stone a star-burst light refraction effect.

Surrounding the main stone are another 3.96 carats of Madeira citrine and smoky quartz, in faceted baguettes. And this is where we want customers to pay special attention...Bellarri didn't cut any corners with this ring and put all of her attention solely into the center stone. The accent baguettes on this ring are every bit as saturated and crystal-clear as the center stone. Go ahead and take a magnified look at any of the baguettes - They're so clear you can see right down to the undergallery below. This is where Bellarri separates herself from many other designers - the accent gemstones on her pieces aren't afterthoughts, and she's as picky with her accents as with her centers.

By the way - in addition to the almost 10 carats of smoky quartz and citrine, the ring also features a full 17 points of genuine white diamonds.

The top setting measures .8" x .7", with a rise of .35" up off the finger. The band is a size 7, and sizing is available.
