Double Cornflower Blue Sapphire Ring
Highly desirable in colour alone, cornflower blue sapphires have a unique appeal. This handmade textured ring features two beautiful examples of cornflower sapphires, 8x6mm, approximately 1.5cts each stone. Framed in rub-over settings, the 18ct yellow gold creates a classic contrast with the blue of the sapphires. Disa has used an open band design to allow for adjustment and comfort. This, along with the positioning of the two sapphires, keeps the piece modern and contemporary.
Size L, the first resize is complimentary.
Sapphire, the birthstone of September, is most desired in its pure, rich blue colour but is present in almost every colour including pink, yellow and green. In the Middle Ages the gem was believed to protect those close to you from harm and also represented loyalty and trust. It is also the gem that married couples traditionally gift on their 45th wedding anniversary.
Disa Allsopp is fascinated by ancient civilisations that worked in metal like the Egyptians and Etruscans. She uses hand hammering, forging and reticulation techniques in 18ct gold and silver to give a luxurious textured finish with a sense of history. Metal is left in it’s natural state, often rugged and patinated for an earthy finish. By incorporating gleaming jewels in rich colours she adds to the treasure-like quality, as if discovering an ancient hoard.
Born in London, Disa grew up in Barbados and studied at Middlesex University with a Postgraduate in Jewellery at Edinburgh College of Art & Design. Disa originally set up a workshop in Barbados and then returned to London in 1996 where she currently designs and makes all her jewellery.
