Hand-cut 7mm round Aquamarine, 1.39 cts, sourced from Nigeria, cut in Deep Aqua pattern, designed by Jeff Graham, and cut by myself. The Aqua was then mounted in this beautiful Edwardian-style ring made of Continuum Silver. Continuum is a proprietary blend - it is 92.5% Silver, like Sterling, but is alloyed with Platinum/Palladium instead of Copper. The result is a harder metal, a brighter finish, a sheen that looks more like White Gold, and less tarnish! It costs a bit more than Sterling, but wears so much better that it is totally worth it! This ring is one classy masterpiece. Comes gift boxed. Perfect for gifting anytime!
