Bellarri "Tuscany" 18K Pink Gold, Lemon Quartz, Peridot, Blue Topaz & Diamond Ring

This is a very exciting addition for us, not only because it's from the very-recent "Tuscany" Collection, but also because it's our first piece from Bellarri's 18K line that features lemon quartz. It's also a sister design to a piece we've offered in the Sterling line, RS812/RQPEC.

It starts with solid 18K pink gold, and features a large 14.30 carat deep-hued lemon quartz. Decorating the side gallery of the ring, all the way around, are 4.90 carats of blue topaz and peridot, in a variety of shapes, cuts and sizes. Diamonds - a full 29 points, almost a third of a carat - decorate the setting around the lemon quartz and the ribbons at the side of the shank.

As with all Bellarri creations, the gemstones are all-natural, earth-mined. This highlights just how nice the lemon quartz centerpiece is - as a cabochon, there are no facets to refract light and possibly distract your view, so the clarity threshold is that much more stringent. In other words, with a cabochon cut if there is any cloudiness you'll see it quite easily. But this lemon quartz is crystal clear all the way through.

The top setting measures about .9" x .6", including the side gallery. The ring sits up about .4" up off the finger, and it's a size 7 with sizing available.
