One lady’s 18k white gold, tourmaline 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 diamond band, and is encompassed by a square shaped, spotlight halo of diamonds, allowing for maximum light reflection. Measuring at approximately 5.66-5.58mm., this 1.20ct. square step cut green tourmaline steals the show and puts all the focus on the intense hues it exudes, by gauge of “strong, slightly bluish green colour”, with very slight inclusions and very good cut.
Peeking out just below this stone is the square 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 of the band for divinely contemporary glamour and shine, accented by the intricate millgrain detailing along the borders.
Two “tapered” princess cut diamonds, with approximate measurements of 3.5-3.2/2.2mm., sit on either side of the centre while a total of twelve other princess cuts follow down the curve of the band with measurements ranging 2.3mm to 1.9mm.
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 and the diamonds on the foundation, there are a total of thirty-two round brilliant cuts with approximate measurements of 1.1-0.9mm. In total, all of the accent stones come together for an approximate total weight of 0.44ct.
This California beauty is currently sized at a 6.5.
