A gorgeous and generously sized oval-shaped lapis lazuli cabochon is centered in a hearty and ornamental 18 karat gold setting. The final result is a simply stunning ring that appears plucked from history. Lapis lazuli is a hard stone gem known for its vivid, deep blue hue. This example contains lapis’ best known inclusions: pyrite and calcite. The way the inclusions display on this jewel - scattered silver pinpoints of pyrite and soft faded “clouds” of calcite - gives this lapis the beautiful impression of a night sky. The gem is set within a bezel with a wide gold ring surrounding, which is accented by a golden rope border. Each shoulder of the ring’s mounting reaches up to cradle the gem, and this modified cathedral style setting is evocative of Etruscan artifacts. The ring’s band is a half-round style with a high luster polish.
