A few months ago, I brought a pretty little sapphire from a young jeweller friend. He offered to set it for me, and we went about designing a setting for it.

This is the end result. A 1.47ct sapphire, surrounded by a .34ct halo of VS1, G colour diamonds, set in 18ct yellow and white gold.

Thank you all.

It is unusual to see a trillion these days in Australia, outside of custom made jewellery, so it appealed to me from that aspect, then, it was a bit of a free form cut, so that held an attraction too.

There was a temptation to set it in a very straight sided setting, but in the end we followed the curves of the stone, and I am just amazed with it.

Hey, that''s really pretty! I love the halo with the thicker metal shank -- it''s really different with that trillion in the center! Ditto everyone else to more pics please!

Thanks so much for the comments.

To say that I love this ring is an understatement. I have spent the whole day looking at my hand. And I just can''t wait to show it off at work tomorrow!!

I am going to have the same jeweller design and make a new engagement ring upgrade for me very soon. I have the aqua that I plan to use sitting in my jewellery box just waiting for inspiration to hit me.

Very nice - a bit unusual, but still quite classic. I think you did right to follow the lines of the stone. That''s something I tend to suggest as it makes it easier to get a winning combination.

Pretty stone and setting. I''m attracted to trillions lately so it''s just great to see what you''ve done with one. What was the size of the unmounted stone? I mean mm not ct weight.

Thanks

Going off memory it was 5x7x7. I wasn''t really after a trillion when I saw this stone. I was hunting an asscher aqua at the time, an this was just a little "something" that the jeweller had on him and I fell in love


It''s a very moody stone, and I seem to only be able to catch it when she displays the teal colour. It flashes green a lot, and is a very intense blue at times too.

Trilliants are uncommon and I like what you''ve done with it. And a 2 tone setting to boot!
