“Claire” cushion shaped Ceylon sapphire.
This is a cushion shape cluster ring, featuring a Ceylon sapphire, set with a halo of grain set round brilliant cut diamonds.
A custom made ring for a client based on an antique deco style.
Most of the cost in this sort of ring is in the sapphire, as at over 3 ct it is quite large. These Ceylon colour sapphires are in short supply, however when we find one like this it makes the ring a stand alone piece.
The total cost will vary depending on the size , weight and colour of the central sapphire. The cushion type shape is a little less common than the standard oval shape, however we often find them in 0.80 – 2.00 ct sizes, which will give the price range in the 5 – 10 k area, although this is just a guide. Over 3.00 ct, as with this one would require some research into what is available.
It is very difficult to be exact in the estimation of cost for this sort of engagement ring until we look at available options for a client. The short supply of Ceylon sapphires has given rise to increases in cost, but well worth it if you want some colour in the ring.
