This ring comes from idolra’s 2018 Blue Book fine jewellery collection, inspired by the blooming “hydrangea”, which creates a ring-shaped shape of flowers. Designers alternately use platinum and sapphire to interpret the petals, and there are large particles of tanzanite hidden in the gap, reminiscent of the natural blue-violet gradient of hydrangea.
Each hydrangea consists of 4 petals, and the edges of the petals are layered on each other, showing a natural form that is slightly swelled – three of them are rounded and cut into sapphire, showing a deep dark blue; the other is made of platinum to create a micro-arc Contoured, polished to a bright mirror. These four petals are joined by a rivet made of platinum, like a stamened flower.
Five elliptical tanzanites are hidden between the petals, and the deep blue-violet tones contrast with the sapphire petals, making it the crowning touch of the whole piece. Flip to the back of the ring to see the criss-crossing branches, each of which has been carefully polished to reveal the natural vitality of the flower.
The setting is specially designed as a wide-brimmed structure to support the complex hydrangea ring face. There are 10 stepped cut diamonds in the ring wall, and the same bouquet of delicate bouquets are seen from the side.
