Large Pledge ring with parti sapphire

Large Pledge ring in platinum, set with an Australian parti sapphire.

I recently have made a number of rings in platinum.
It is never my first choice in metal, I prefer the steely grey tone of 18ct white gold. Saying that, I am starting to understand the attraction of platinum, it's colour and properties are distinctly it's own.
This ring was an order through e.g.etal, for a client overseas.
The sapphire was from my own collection of stones, I particularly loved this stone, as it is blue with flashes of green, and constantly changes according to the light.

I love parti sapphires because they remind me of water; the sea, rock pools, blue that constantly changes according to light and motion.
