Bellarri "Romantica" 14K Yellow Gold, Peridot & White Diamond Ring

From Bellarri's long-running "Romantica" Collection, this ring features a solid 14K yellow gold band and setting with an absolutely stunning all-natural earth-mined untreated & unheated cushion-cut peridot center stone flanked by tapering-length cylindrical baguette settings of natural peridot on the shoulders of the ring. Total carat weight across the center stone and side cylindrical settings is 6.00ct.

Genuine white diamonds decorate the corners of the top setting as well as the settings of gold flowing down the shoulders of the ring. You'll notice that like Bellarri's older legacy designs, the diamonds are set in solid 18K yellow gold that has been coated in rhodium to preserve the bright white appearance of the diamonds. With rhodium selling for $6000-8000 per ounce, as compared to only $2000 per ounce just a year ago, this rhodium treatment is something that Bellarri rarely does anymore it has just gotten to be far too expensive. As fast as the price of gold has risen, rhodium has gone up even faster.

This isn't quite a petite ring, but it is on the smaller side so if you like rings that can be worn more frequently and don't need a special occasion this works perfectly. The top setting measures .5" x .35" measured across the diamond corners, or .65" wide measured across the shoulders. The setting rises almost .35" up off the finger and the band is a size 7 with sizing available. The ring weighs 5.7 grams.
