Bellarri "Tango II" 18K Pink Gold, Champagne Quartz, Smoky Quartz and White Diamond Ring

From Bellarri's "Tango II" Collection, this is a ring that is absolutely gorgeous in person - if you like it even a little from our photos, you will adore it on your finger. Our photos aren't bad, but the cut on this ring is so unusual and creative and the light refraction must be seen with the naked eye.

It starts with a solid 18K pink gold shank and setting. The centerpiece is a large and all-natural 11.00 carat earth-mined champagne quartz cut into what we can only describe as a "Bundt Cake" cut. That sounds odd, but trust us when we tell you that it absolutely works. The stone does show tiny inclusions at its center, but you'll need magnification to see them, and they do not detract from the presentation.

Set around the champagne quartz is a ring of 17 points / .17ct of genuine white diamonds, creating a wonderful sparkle effect around the entire ring.

Below the diamonds, set into the side gallery all the way around the entire ring, are 4.05 carats of natural, earth-mined smoky quartz. The chocolate brown of the smoky quartz serves to perfectly break the ring into top and bottom sections - the color contrast between the levels just works.

The top setting measures .65" in diameter with a rise of .5" up off the finger. The shank is a size 7 and sizing is available.

Whomever takes a chance on this ring will be highly pleased - this ring is a sleeper.
