One lady’s 18k white gold, sapphire and diamond, Tacori engagement ring. Item is trademarked and the condition is new.
Handcrafted in California, each and every Tacori ring is quite literally hand made by highly skilled artisans. From the molds of the ring, to carving the signature crescent design, to setting each individual stone – it is all done in house, by hand. Tacori rings combine regality and passion, offering something for everyone while being unique in their execution. This particular Tacori is no different.
Designed in their “Cathedral” foundation, categorized in the “Reverse Crescent” collection, the crown of this engagement ring sits high atop a tapered, channel set diamond band, and is encompassed by a cushion shaped, spotlight halo of diamonds, allowing for maximum light reflection. The 0.80ct. round mixed cut, purple sapphire center stone is showcased in dainty but strong dual prongs, putting all the focus on the expanse of this stone, which measures approximately at 5.42 – 5.44 x 3.10mm. Internally, this stone possesses slight inclusions and a “pinkish purple” hue.
Peeking out just below this stone is the cushion shaped halo, giving just enough extra sparkle to give the centre piece a face lift with the apparition of another shape. Transitioning seamlessly from the halo to the band, diamonds of graduating size taper up the ceiling for divinely contemporary glamour and shine, accented by the intricate millgrain detailing along the borders.
Crawling up the profile of the foundation is one of Tacori’s signature designs; the “Reverse” crescent fabric, carved out of the gold itself for an open feel and look, and adorned with diamonds embedded in the profile of the foundation. Between the halo, the band, and the diamonds on the foundation, there are a total of forty-eight round brilliant cuts that make up a total weight of 0.55ct., with measurements varying from 0.80mm to 2.80mm, and qualities graded with the “Tacori standard” of VS-1 to VS-2 clarity, F-G colour, and good to very good cut.
This California beauty is currently sized at a 6.5.
