A little holiday season inspiration for that special someone……..

 

What do you buy for that certain someone who has everything?  Well, we at Omi Privé specialize in the rare and extraordinary, so here are a few of our suggestions for this year:

 

Incredible Australian Lightning Ridge Opal Ring

An amazing palette of color swirls around in this 13.46 carat opal.  We surround this magnificent gem with grass-green tsavorite garnets, deep ocean blue sapphires and diamonds – all set in platinum.  No two opals are alike and very few look anything like this one.

Pastel Pinks, Purples and Blues in a Cacophony of Color

In this design collaboration with artist/designer Remy Rotenier, we started with an amazing 12.27 carat cushion-cut pink kunzite in the center then surrounded it with rose cut sapphires in pleasing pink and purple tones.  We added in a few pretty blue sapphires as accents to round out this18K rose gold ring for the free form loving artist in us all.

Luck be a Sapphire Tonight!

If you know someone who needs a little good fortune – how about this 7.77 carat emerald cut blue sapphire from Ceylon set in platinum and surrounded by baguette diamonds and a pair of blue sapphires?  Imagine looking at this beauty everytime you pull down the handle on a one-armed bandit.

You Can’t Buy Me Love

But, you can buy this fabulous ring……featuring a passion-inspiring, unheated 4.01 carat oval ruby from Mozambique and over a carat of diamonds set in platinum with 18K gold prongs.  This is truly one of Mother Nature’s true works of art, released by the hands of a master gem cutter.

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

Thanks to an effect known as asterism, certain cabochon-cut sapphires exhibit a star-like pattern when light is reflected off the internal silk of the gem.  Finding a fine quality sapphire that exhibits this is rare, finding a pair is much rarer.  Check out these star sapphire earrings, accented with blue sapphires and diamonds in 18K white gold.  These are sure to be a conversation-starter at any event.

Emerald by Day, Ruby by Night – Introducing the Alexandrite

A lot of history and lore surrounds the magical color-change gemstone Alexandrite.  What is truly factual is the beauty and rarity of this very fine gemstone.  This 3.76 carat emerald-cut Alexandrite exhibits a deep teal blue-green in daylight and a rich raspberry-purple color in warm candlelight.  The gem originated in the exceptional chrysoberyl deposits of Brazil, which have all been played out at this time.  The gemstone is framed by a halo of diamonds, then framed again with more alexandrites that change color along with the center when the lighting conditions change.  The platinum ring shank features more alexandrites and diamonds – this is a true work of gem wizardry.
