Chrysoprase Ring With White Sapphires in Sterling Silver
Chrysoprase Ring/Wedding Ring
Handmade chrysoprase ring with white sapphires set in sterling silver. Three pieces of chrysoprase are inlaid in each side of this ring with 3 pave` set white sapphires in the center. The sparkling white sapphires total .09cts. and are in a triangle cluster. The ring is 5.6mm wide at the top and tapers to 3.2mm wide at the bottom (shank). The chrysoprase ring in the photo is shown in a size 7 1/4 for scale. The ring will be made to order in your ring size in about 3 to 6 weeks. You may customize this ring by substituting other inlay materials for the chrysoprase or other gemstones in place of the white sapphires. Additional charges will apply if your choices are an upgrade. This ring style (WD186) is a popular choice for a unique engagement or wedding ring.
Chrysoprase is a rare form of chalcedony or quartz. Chrysoprase ranges from light to dark green but is most sought after in its striking apple green color. Chrysoprase is rare due to the fact that it is cryptocrystalline, meaning that instead of being formed by large six sided crystals, the size of the crystals are extremely small and cannot be seen as distinct particles under normal magnification. Chrysoprase has a hardness of 6.5 to 7 on the Moh's scale and is in the same stone family as agate, carnelian, and onyx. The best known sources of chrysoprase are Queensland Australia, Germany, Poland, Russia, Arizona, California, and Brazil.
**I recommend upgrading to Continuum sterling silver for all wedding ring or heavy wear jewelry. It will be much more durable than standard sterling silver and should extend the life of your jewelry.
Most of my rings can be made in stainless steel as well as 14k white or yellow gold for an additional charge. Contact me with your ring size for a price quote.
Please take a look at my shop policies and information page before ordering!
It is very important that you give us your correct size when ordering as it is difficult to adjust the size without using a laser welder and risking damage to the ring. The paper finger sizers you might find on the internet and print out are not accurate so please do not use them. We have experimented and found that they vary from a 1/4 size to a full size in error. Please visit a local jeweler (or two) and get your finger sized properly. We depend on you, the customer, to provide us with the correct size so please do not estimate or guess. Special order size rings are NOT RETURNABLE.
