Royal Blue Sapphire and Diamond Platinum Ring - Baret Collection
Royal blue sapphires are luxurious, and when mixed with Platinum, they make the ultimate engagement ring. The Baret design is the perfect partner to this divine sapphire, bringing an organic touch with its opening bud-like details caressing its lab diamonds. We acquired this lovely sapphire directly from Nigeria. It was mined by hand in the Gombe mining area, famous for luminous high-quality sapphires that don't require heat treatment. As such, this piece remains unheated and completely natural other than faceting. This is a magnificent engagement ring, ready for a life of excitement and joy.
As with all our jewellery, this ring design is designed to last a lifetime. Being made from Platinum, it will last several lifetimes, be cherished by all, and be passed down through generations. It's a comfortable ring design predominantly formed of curves and has a slightly wider base under the finger to help with balance. The final photo shows a fitted wedding ring with texture; polished and diamond eternity rings are also available. We design the accompanying rings to perfectly follow the shape of the engagement ring, bringing a cohesive look of grace and comfort.
Handcrafted in Australia. Designed, set and finished by our skilled team in our Adelaide workshop. We love this ring and hope you will, too.
Our Baret Collection has its roots in history. It's a design style for romantics and signals to the beauty of the natural world. Baret's delicate opening flower buds signify a coming together and the beginning of new life.
Named after the remarkable woman Jeanne Baret. Born in France in the 18th century, Baret defied societal norms and embarked on a groundbreaking expedition, becoming the first woman to complete a circumnavigation of the globe.
Jeanne Baret's journey commenced not only as a woman but also as a skilled botanist. Disguised as a man to evade the French law that precluded women from such voyages, she adopted the name Jean Baret and joined Louis Antoine de Bougainville's expedition in 1766. Her remarkable botanical expertise came to the forefront during the journey and even though her true identity was eventually discovered she was kept aboard and completed the adventure as an essential member of the scientific endeavour.
Please note the fitted wedding ring is just a sample of what is available and is not included with the purchase price of the sapphire engagement ring.
