Bellarri "Flirtation" 18K White Gold, Natural Aquamarine & White Diamond Ring

From Bellarri's "Flirtation" Collection, this ring features a solid 18K white gold band and setting with 5 beautiful and all-natural unheated aquamarines. The center stone is a 2.99 carat oval cut with flat table and faceted crown. Flanking the center are 1.79 additional carats of flat-tabled faceted baguettes, 2 per side. Finishing the presentation are 7 points / .07ct of genuine white diamonds.

Whereas many designers are heat-treating their aquamarines - this is how you get the teal-hued stones that populate so many shopping-mall jewelry stores - Bellarri refuses to utilize heat-treatment for her aquamarines (and Morganites as well). The color they boast coming out of the ground is the color you see on your finger. So you can rest assured that every Bellarri aquamarine piece features natural, non-lab created stones free of artificial enhancement.

The top setting measures .45" x .4" measured strictly across the oval center, but .8" wide measured across the shoulders. The center of the setting rises .25" up off the finger and the ring weighs 6.4 grams. The band is a size 7 - actually just a hair larger than a 7 but not quite a 7.25.
