Star Sapphire & 18ct White Gold Ring
A statement ring featuring a distinguished grey-blue six-ray star sapphire, tailored within an 18ct white gold round trim collet with a seamless finish, defining the star as the focal point and fashioned for a classic look. Handcrafted in England.
An asterism (star) is formed by the reflection of light from thin rutile needles lying in adjacent directions within the gemstone. When cut en-cabochon, light-rays reflects the needles from within and creates a natural star effect through the surface of the stone. The Latin word ‘Saphirus’ and the Greek word ‘Sapheiros’ both mean ‘blue’. Thus, it was thought sapphires were a symbol of the heavens.
