What it is: 8.18 carat No Heat padparadscha sapphire oval set in Platinum and 18K rose gold. Melee diamonds accent the ring’s triple shank, and satin finish enhances the rose gold head and prongs.

Why it’s cool: This ring is large, but not overstated. The pavé-set diamonds on the shank sparkle to showcase the center. We chose to complete the head and prongs of the ring with satin finish to distinguish the soft, delicate color of this padparadscha.

Why it’s “Privé”: Padparadscha is a special member of the corundum family, and features a graceful, pastel color, best defined as a blend between pink and orange. This padparadscha sapphire is certified as having “No Indication of Thermal Treatment,” discerning its high value and rarity, especially given its significant size.

I adore this ring so much, I was tempted NOT to write this post. I would love to keep it!  The second piece in our countdown introduces a new stone to the Privé collection: opal.

RC1730-OPOV-2

What it is: 4.50 carat black opal set in 18K yellow gold. Accent stones comprise round diamonds, green tsavorite garnets, and pear-shape sapphires.

Why it’s cool: This black opal has extraordinary play of color. Its vivid blues and greens are striking. The ring sits low against the finger, making it easy to wear. High-polish yellow gold plays off the hue palette of the opal.

Why it’s “Privé”: This ring transitions from a classic style, featuring pavé-set diamond and garnet melee, while embracing an edgy, more stylish look. The piece was designed specifically for this opal, with the sapphire pair and tsavorites distinctively selected to accentuate the gem’s play of color.

Gearing up for Jewelry Week in Las Vegas is the most exciting time for me at Omi! While busily sketching and crafting new pieces, we cannot wait for their official introduction in just a few short weeks. Here is a “sneak peek” countdown for some of the newest Privé designs. This fancy-colored sapphire ring was just finished and released from the shop!

What it is: 5.77 carat emerald-cut fancy sapphire set in 18K yellow gold. The ring features a high-polish finish and pavé-set diamonds on its sides.

Why it’s cool: This fancy sapphire has a lighter tone in comparison to many of the darker, royal blue sapphires most often shown in the market.  Its pastel hue is on-trend, and is enhanced by the brightness of the yellow gold frame. Also, while it is common for an elongated stone to be set vertically on the finger, this stone is set in opposition. This creates a visually slimming look on wider fingers, as well.

Why it’s “Privé”: This ring unveils a different style. Without any diamonds viewable from the top, the sapphire is the sole focus of the piece. While its hue is light in tone, the color is distributed evenly throughout the stone. During the creative process, we designed the split shank and the sides of the ring to be open, allowing the sapphire’s color to be viewed from every angle.
