Turquoise and Rose Cut Diamond Latus Ring | Solid 14k Recycled Gold

Turquoise and Rose Cut Diamond Latus Ring | Solid 14k Recycled Gold


◊ Our latus ring featuring turquoise and natural grey rose cut diamond set in solid 14k recycled gold.

◊ Turquoise measures 5 x 7 mm. Diamond is approximately 6 mm and 0.5 carats. All of our diamonds are conflict free.

◊ The style of rose cut originated in the mid 16th century in Antwerp, Belgium. The rose cut features triangular facets arranged in a symmetrical radiating pattern, but with the bottom of the stone left flat—essentially a crown without a pavilion. This cut was the predecessor to other forms of brilliant cuts, such as the Old Mine Cut and Old European Cut, which were more advanced due to the development of diamond saws and jewelry lathes.

◊ The word diamond comes from the ancient Greek adámas, meaning unbreakable. Most natural diamonds are formed at high temperatures and pressure in the Earth's mantle. Carbon-containing minerals provide the carbon source, and the growth occurs over periods from 1 billion to over 3 billion years. Diamonds are brought close to the Earth's surface through deep volcanic eruptions by magma, which cools into igneous rocks. 

◊ Turquoise is an opaque, blue-to-green mineral that is a hydrous phosphate of copper and aluminum. It has been prized as a gem and ornamental stone for thousands of years owing to its unique hue. Color is as variable as the mineral's other properties, ranging from white to a powder blue to a sky blue, and from a blue-green to a yellowish green depending on other elements. The turquoise in this ring is true to the color pictures with only slight variation.

◊ If you have any preference to more or less veining (dark matrix through turquoise) please let us know, otherwise we will select a piece for you.

◊ Due to the aberrant nature of minerals, each piece of gem/mineral is unique. 

◊ Ring is packaged in a ring box, ready for gifting and is shipped via UPS with full insurance and tracking. Please select UPS Diamonds & Gold for shipping option, we will not ship with any other option selected.
