This ring celebrates the particular feel of an African summer that you'll know if you've ever experienced it. Hot, a touch savage & very golden. The petals have been brushed from the centre outwards to create a velvet texture & highlight vivid pink, yellow & orange sapphires. A thorny band twines around your finger.
Flower diameter: 13mm. Sapphires: 3.5mm each. Total 0.6 carats
Handmade in London's Hatton Garden, like all biiju pieces, and hallmarked by the Goldsmith's Assay Office.
