Chantecler Capri Italy 18kt. peridot & diamond ring 9.5gr. 0.25ct. tw. SI-H $1,890.00 CAD. e13321

This layered ring from Chantecler Capri is all you really need to know about the Italian institution. Consider its focal point, a natural inclusion free peridot formed into a perfect sun drop. We’ve never seen anything like it. Spend some time on their website and you will find equally daring and playful pieces. This particular ring is a now retired iteration of their Campanelle line which explores the motif of bells. During the final year of World War II Chantecler, the company’s founder and original goldsmith, was inspired by the story of St. Michael Archangel and his defeat of Satan. He designed and created a bronze bell as a symbol of good luck and peace that he intended to have conveyed to US President Roosevelt. The island of Capri and the American soldiers in the “Rest Camp” on the island, were so taken with the idea the bell became a favorite souvenir and good luck charm. This Campanelle is more stylized than the current offering. It hangs from the ring on a white gold diamond encrusted handle that allows it to swing slightly during wear. The ring itself is double banded with the bell hanging from a high polished yellow gold band. The other is brightly rhodium enhanced white gold that has been French set with diamonds across its top half. All told the premium quality 9.5 gram 18 karat ring is set with 0.25 carats of SI-H round brilliant cut diamonds. Estate price for this like new designer statement ring $1,890.00 CAD. Stock #e13321.

2.28ct. Tanzanite & tapered baguette diamond (0.15ct. tw. VS-J) ring 4.2gr. 14kt. $840.00 CAD. e13320

Something few people know about tanzanite is that it naturally forms brown. It is through exposure to heat that it takes on a blueberry colour. Some mined tanzanite will come out of the ground that colour because they were exposed to sufficient natural heat. Most are coloured by artisan miners using a bed of hot coals and a primitive blowtorch. But the final colour is up to the gem as it can take on any colour from yellow, pink, green, grey, blue, or violet. The intensely saturated colour seen in this 2.13 carat spearhead shaped brilliant cut tanzanite is one of the most desirable. The unique center has been shouldered by starbursts of tapered baguette cut diamonds. The 0.15 carats of VS-J diamonds finish the ring off with a final touch of drama that draws the eye toward the center. The 4.2 gram ring has been cast from 14 karat yellow gold to help it blend into the finger during wear. Estate price for this statement ring $840.00 CAD. Stock #e13320.
