Bellarri 18K "Venus" Collection Ring

Brand new and just retired, Bellarri's latest iteration of their popular and long-running "Venus Collection" and we just got all 3 matching pieces - ring, pendant/brooch and earrings - to go with the Venus bangle bracelet we already have listed.

The ring, R8895/M, is a serious hunk of jewelry art - it's almost a full inch long, and is just over .75" wide. It also sits .4" up off the finger, and we included some nice on-hand shots below. Total weight is 15.3 grams, about half an ounce. It starts with solid 18K yellow gold, fully hallmarked. The top setting features large faceted cylinders of green tourmaline, rhodolite garnet, citrine, amethyst, iolite and blue topaz, separated by rows of diamonds set in solid 18K white gold. On the sides of the shank are columns of more gemstones in a rounded Fleur de Lis sort of design. And here's where the ring gets really creative - it's asymmetrical. On one side, the baguette array is a 2-3-2 configuration with blue topaz, peridot, and red garnet. The other side is a 3-4-3 configuration, also with blue topaz, peridot, and red garnet but adding amethyst as well. Yet the size difference between the two sides is so subtle that the ring does not look, or wear, imbalanced. And yes, the diamonds do extend down from the top of the setting in between the columns of baguettes on both sides of the shank. Total diamond count is 32 points, one of the highest diamond counts available on a Bellarri ring. It is a size 7, and sizing is available.
