Three Colours: Blue

FRAN BARKER

jewellery design

This natural Ceylon sapphire ring was designed for another of my Instagram followers last month. Kate knew exactly what she wanted; a sapphire ring set mimosa style to remind her of the film Three Colours Blue, in which there is a mobile of blue beads that is hung in the window to reflect different lights.

Wanting to depict an intensity of colours I opted for natural Ceylon sapphires and sourced some that reflected differently in each light; from a powerful blue to purple tanzanite colours. We opted for white gold to bring out the cool shades and compliment the stones, letting them speak for themselves.

I loved the powerful colours the five sapphires helped create in this ring, enhanced further by the white gold mimosa setting. The ring has since arrived in Australia with Kate who says she is “honoured to own such a stunning piece”. Once again, I’m blessed to have the privilege to work with such fantastic clients!
