Bellarri "Romantica" 18K Peridot & Diamond Ring

From Bellarri's "Romantica" Collection, this ring design was actually created specifically for a blue topaz setting, and approximately 100 specimens were created with blue topaz. What we have here is one of only three that were created with peridot.

It starts with a solid - but not cumbersome - solid 18K yellow gold shank and setting. The ring actually weighs 10.4 grams, more than a third of an ounce, so it's not a petite design.

It displays a total of 10.38 carats of all-natural, earth-mined, untreated peridot in three different settings: the large faceted center stone, baguettes set into the sides of the shank, and round peridot cabochons front and back.

The real highlight, of course, is the center stone. With gemstones, you get what you pay for, and you pay for color and clarity, and this stone is simply stunning. It's big, it's brilliant, and the color saturation and hue are fantastic.

The top setting measures .6" x .6" with a rise of just over .35". The shank is a size 7 and sizing is available.

Retail on this ring was almost $8K, owing to the quality of the center stone, but we've got it for only $2695.
