Featuring a sparkling blue laboratory grown sapphire measuring 6 mm in diameter, this 1 carat stone is securely held in a vintage-style six-prong classic solitaire. The sterling silver mounting is brightly polished, but can also be antiqued (darkened) if you prefer. Sapphire is the birthstone of September, and this ring makes a beautiful birthstone ring, an lovely promise or engagement ring, or just a special love token.
When I first began working at the jewelry store that was my first job, I was puzzled to learn that the typical four-prong solitaire mounting that I had grown up seeing was actually considered one of the least secure ring mountings. The jeweler would often shake his head over the number of these broken mountings that found their way across his bench. The reasoning was simple. With a four-prong mounting, if one of the prongs becomes damaged there is a fairly good chance that the stone may be lost. However, with a six-prong mounting, losing or damaging a prong will not lead to loss and sorrow - there are five other prongs that hold the stone safe.
I am happy to create this ring for you in any size you need, including half sizes and quarter sizes. Please let me know if you have any questions about this lovely ring!
