The turn of the century prompted great interest in the astronomical wonders of the sky, and this interest was often translated into the jewels of the time.
I think we all remember the 1st time we saw a shooting star, this ring recalls the wonder and joy of that.
In the estate of a Jeweler we discovered a small box of unset turn of the century gems, one of the gem folds contained pale cornflower blue Old Mine Cut Montana Sapphires. When I designed this ring I had those gems in mind and each of these rings is set with one of those Sapphires. Cushion shaped and cornflower blue each Sapphire is a unique treasure.
Each piece is hand cast and hand finished here in Portland using recycled gold.
The Shooting Star Ring is 14k White Gold, set with an Old mine cut Montana Sapphire.
Measurements: 6.2mm wide at the top, 2.3mm wide at the back of the shank.
