Bellarri "Mademoiselle" 18K Pink Gold, Champagne Quartz, Smoky Quartz & White Diamond Ring - One of a Kind Prototype

Bellarri created this prototype design to be done in a wider variety of colorways than most of her signature "Mademoiselle" designs, which were mostly based around rhodolite garnet. We've so far seen three of these prototypes, one in amethyst and another with rhodolite over white onyx, and both of those have already sold.

This colorway features natural smoky quartz over champagne quartz, but otherwise the design is exactly the same. It's a large ring, with a top setting measuring a full .95" x .85", with a rise of a full .75" off the finger. It also weighs 15.1 grams, almost a full half ounce. The shank is a size 7, and sizing is available.

The centerpiece is a stunning, all-natural, earth-mined 30.25 carat champagne quartz with wonderful color and clarity. It's covered by what we call a "top hat" of natural smoky quartz in the shape of a flower, reminiscent of the entire "Mademoiselle" design theme. You can see that the smoky quartz is cut into faceted "blades", with a round gem at the center - total carat weight is 2.15ct.

A full 16 points / .16ct of white diamonds decorates the entire ring, from the top hat to the flowing 18K pink gold all around the ring and extending down the shank.

It's a ring that must be seen in person to be appreciated - the gold filigree work under the ring is as ornate and creative as the shank itself. It's a work of art, top to bottom.
