ORANGE SAPPHIRE RING by Jennifer Dawes design
This sculptural ring was handmade by Jennifer Dawes Design in her Santa Rosa studio. It features an 3.8 carat unheated orange sapphire that is a bit chameleon in color, ranging from deep orange to bright grapefruit pinkish-orange, depending on the light. Purchased in Tanzania as a rough gemstone weighing over 2 grams, it was faceted into a custom Portuguese Round cut by Peter Torraca. The warmth of an 18k yellow gold bezel surrounds the center sapphire and .77ctw rose cut pear shape diamonds with a grey shimmer that perfectly accent the center. The hand-hammering of the finish shows Jennifer’s hand in every detail.
