Hot or Not – Volume Nine

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling and Curious Things

This week we have selected a ring that has been cause for debate.  It’s been on display in the store, added to the case by one and then quickly taken back out by another. It’s been schlepped from here to there, yet always comes back.  Not unlike Cinderella’s slipper, it just hasn’t found its perfect match.

Made from 13.1 dwt of 18-karat white gold, this ring offers a solid presence.  Featured at the top of a high-polished wide shank is a u-shaped curl that measures an inch in length.  Sitting vertically and running parallel with the finger, this architectural structure is encrusted with 250 natural blue sapphires.  These round beauties range in hue from a soft cerulean to a deep cobalt, creating a subtle ombré feel.  These glittering gems reach from knuckle to knuckle with 6.00 carats of scintillating sparkle. 


Even the outermost edges of this curvaceous conundrum are covered with corundum.  Ultra-modern and stylishly sleek, our ring presents an unusual look that waffles somewhere between wearable art and weaponry.  Weighing over half an ounce and shimmering with sapphires, there’s no question about the intrinsic value of the piece.  The real question is about its aesthetic appeal.  

The finger size is relatively small, it fits perfectly on the ring finger of my right hand.  Inside the shank, the metal is smooth and shiny making it comfortable to wear.  With so much working in its favor, it must be beautiful…  but is it?  I appreciate the quality of the materials and the craftsmanship that created the ring, and yet, I’m torn.  Is it hot, or not?

This ring has been part of our inventory for years, just waiting for its soulmate.  If that’s you, stop in or give us a call.  It’s available in our showroom for just $2200.00.
