A dozen times a summer I’m out working on the land, I look up and there is a schooner 500 feet off shore. Not three or four miles out, but right there sailing by. It’s a gift of grace, beauty and harmony that this goddess of the sea with its white sails as free as the wind is sailing by. Who knows the destination of all onboard? Who knows what hopes, wishes, dreams and desires will be fulfilled on this voyage. Who knows what adventures await?
Awesome. Dazzling. It took us a while to acquire the 3 matched oval center diamonds…worth the wait. This is an impressive ring. Low-profile diamonds traverse the entire top of the hand with brilliant white glittering, shimmering, sparkling, glinting, scintillating diamond light. It’s amazing.
The Schooner all-diamond ring – 3 big ovals center, 6 small graduated tapered diamonds grace the east and west wings. Low-profile, finger-hugging, comfortable, smooth, safe, solid, secure.
The Oval Diamond Secret
Oval diamonds look big. A secret about oval diamonds is that for the same weight they look larger than an equal weight round diamond. Out of curiosity I took this ring around the store and asked colleagues to guess the weight of the center diamond. Guesses ranged from just shy of a carat to 1.5 carats. The actual size of the center – .71 carat! Everyone was surprised. The diamonds in this ring look big.
If the center was indeed 1.5 carats and the other diamonds were appropriately larger this ring would be over $26,000 – this ring is less than half that price.
An Amazing Look
There’s a lot of diamond brilliance streaming across the finger. Large center oval, two impeccably matched side ovals, and then on each shoulder are graduating round diamonds. There’s a graceful sweep as the ring tapers from the center down the sides. One of the best looking Athleisure rings we’ve ever made.
The oval diamonds are well protected in semi-bezels. The diamonds are set low, close to the finger, comfortable. This ring is smooth, no prongs to catch, what we call glove friendly. This ring is part of our Athleisure Jewelry Collection. Comfortable, easy, natural. Women are moving to a more natural look of greater security and comfort in all their jewelry.
A Labor of Love
There is nothing like this ring anywhere in the world. It’s challenging to make because nearly all ovals are cut a little wider than what’s required for this setting. Our diamond sources say what we are looking for almost doesn’t exist. We’re patient; it can take weeks or months to find the right suite of ovals. If the ovals were wider I think there would be a subtle loss of elegance.
Once this ring sells, I can’t give you a date when the next one will be available, due to the sourcing challenge, but it will be months. Each Diamond Schooner Ring we make is priced individually.
A Jeweler’s Wife’s Perspective
& Why I’m in Trouble
I brought this ring home to photograph it on my wife’s finger. She loved the ring. Loved the ovals – thought they looked huge. Loved how the diamond light moved across the ovals. She played with this ring more than others I’ve brought home. She wanted to keep it. I told her I’d keep it in mind for a future anniversary.
The next day she looked at the ring on our website and was surprised how different it looked online verses in person. She said it looked much better in person. I agree. It’s near impossible to capture the full beauty of gems and jewelry in a still photo. If you like the photo, you’ll love the ring.
