This ring is completely one of a kind with a custom rosecut kite sapphire.
- entirely hand fabricated artisan made ring (perfect for engagement, bridal, right hand ring, anniversary, push gift, etc.; I don't like to label my work as bridal, but this ring is perfect for that if you choose)
- size 5.75 (can be resized from US ring sizes 3.75–7.75 (whole/half/quarter only)
- RESIZING INFO (PLEASE READ CAREFULLY): complimentary in-house resizing up or down UP TO 2 whole sizes takes 10 business days to complete as it is not a fast process and takes several hours of careful work. Please include a note in the "notes" section at checkout before choosing payment selection and also send me an email: nicole [at] knotandsplice.com with the resizing request. Once a piece has been shipped out, resizing at a later date will incur a fee. If you'd like information on whether I can resize this ring up or down more than 2 sizes, please email me first to discuss: nicole [at] knotandsplice.com.
- 14K yellow gold (we use recycled milled metals)
- handmade claw 4-prong carved talon prong setting (the setting is backed with solid gold to further enhance the sapphire's colors and reflect more light which is the best way to set a rosecut gem). Talon prongs are always hand-carved in the final piece at setting and it further shows that the piece is handmade with skill. The talon prongs have a romantic feeling to them, clasping the stone tightly and elegantly, like a safe hug. There is an Edwardian vibe with both rose cuts (with rose cuts being one of the first faceted gems; first created over 500 years ago) and talon prongs (which are, in my option, an artful revival of skillful handmade work—which stands out in an industrial, mass-manufactured world today). This piece was lovingly made with great skill and intention.
- This ring will compliment wedding or stacking bands up to 1.5mm thick (and any width) that can snuggle nicely under the setting. You may also contact us to help create a customized wedding band like a curved or arched ring (this may require us to have both rings in hand in order to match perfectly, depending on the complexity of the design—custom projects are limited, so please plan with months in advance. During the holiday season, we may limit how many new projects we can accept.
- Rectangular style band measures approx. 2mm (width) x 1.5mm (thickness)
- Details about the sapphire: This ethically-sourced custom-cut focal kite shaped rosecut Kashmir violet/pink (bicolor; the pink is a warm center flash like a heart beat...we're in love)
- Sapphire measures approx. 1.08 carats. It is 8.6mm x 6.8mm (the setting is approx. 4.4mm tall from the inside of the band to the top of the gemstone).
- Other sapphire details: Sapphires have a mohs scale hardness of 9.0 which is very strong and perfectly for daily wear (diamonds have the highest mohs scale hardness of any gemstone which is a 10.0; therefore, sapphires make a great choice for alternative bridal, anniversary, and daily wear heirloom rings).
- hallmarked "14K" inside each ring and signed NJM (Nicole Jo Melton) on the inside of the ring band

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. I believe these pieces look so much prettier in person when held in the hand and admired by the eye (I've also been told this many times by Knot & Splice customers). I hope you're delighted when you receive your special piece in the mail.
