Marcus & Co. Untreated Sapphire and Enamel Ring


This bold, artistic ring features a large, richly-colored blue sapphire within a gold organic setting that expresses the Art Nouveau spirit particular to Marcus & Co. The cushion-cut, untreated sapphire from Sri Lanka is nestled within a bed of stylized leaves, subtly secured by the scrolling tendrils and tight little buds that are integral to the design. Diamonds bring brilliance and sparkle to the living structure, while touches of blue enamel unify the overall composition. The jewel merges the beauty of the mineral and the organic worlds into a compelling work of art for the hand.
