This one of a kind Athenia ring features a stunning Nigerian sapphire in a stunning parti/teal/blue color and 8 sparkling GH/SI precision-cut white diamonds in 14K rose gold. The sapphire is partially color change in that it appears a more solid, darker blue outside in indirect sunlight. Under fluorescent and LED lighting, this ring appears more of a transparent vibrant blue. Photo 2 shows this ring in natural, overcast, indirect sunlight.
This ring was created using traditional goldsmithing techniques to create an organic form that also feels architectural and modern with a polished and symmetrical center prong setting. This ring was molded so that we could make more rings like it...although almost every sapphire we use will be one of a kind.
Athenia is truly fit for a mermaid—a lover of all things ethereal, dreamy, and true. She is not just an engagement ring, but can be worn by any person for any reason if only just to remember there is beauty in this world and that art heals. If you should want to stack a perfect ring with Athenia, we designed our Dewdrop ring to be the perfect companion (pictured in the photos).

Please note: While every effort is made to photograph the items to be an accurate representation, photography and computer monitors have limitations and differences. These images were taken with a Canon DSLR and macro lens (this shows much more detail than the eye can see). Colors and brightness may vary on different devices.
