Bellarri "La Petite" 18K Peridot

The La Petite Collection spans quite a few years, but this particular design is actually fairly recent - it was retired at the end of 2014 so it's one of the newer designs you'll see on our site.

Peridot is often overlooked amongst the Bellarri selections on our site - next to rhodolite garnet, amethyst or Madeira citrine, we can see how it might not stand out. But what many customers may not know is that the market for natural (non-lab created) peridot has been tight for about the last 18 months. This is why so few of Bellarri's newest collections and designs feature any peridot - they simply can't source enough of it. If you're a peridot fan - and why wouldn't you be this time of year, it's such a great spring and summer color - this ring is a great way to enjoy such a beautiful gemstone, and one that is becoming harder to find at this level of natural clarity.

This "La Petite" ring (which isn't tiny by any standard) features 4.70 carats of all-natural earth-mined peridot, cut to form the petals of a flower. Diamonds - 15 points total - decorate the center of the flower and sides of the shank.

The top setting measures .6" in diameter - again, not tiny at all - and it sits about .25" up off the finger. The ring is a size 7 and sizing is available.
