The Orange Ombre Hoop Earrings measure 31mm in diameter each. Crafted of 18kt yellow gold, the earrings have a beautiful polished sheen that complements the brilliance of the stones perfectly. A total of 14.76 carats of bezel set, oval orange sapphires adorns the earrings. The pair is also designed with the iconic Brillante motif --a signature Paolo Costagli creation. Fresh and colorful, these earrings are perfect for daytime affairs but also transition beautifully to night-time events.
Paolo Costagli’s Ombre Collection is the designer’s artistic expression of his love for sapphires and the Tuscan summers of his youth. According to Paolo, nothing captures the mystic beauty of the Mediterranean Sea better than the colors and textures of sapphires. The stones used in this collection were hand selected in varying sequences to ensure the quality and uniqueness of each piece. A reverse-set technique is also used to bring out the maximum brilliance of the stones.
Sapphires are one of the most popular gemstones in the world. Known for its beautiful deep blue hue, this gem has found its place in many royal jewels. One of the most notable in the recent times is the Duchess of Cambridge’s engagement ring --an heirloom piece of the British Royal Family. Unbeknownst to many is that sapphires come in colors other than blue. Depending on where they are mined, these stones can be green, orange, yellow, pink, and even violet. Another defining characteristic of sapphires is their hardness. On the Mohs scale, it scores a 9 making it quite durable. This makes it a pleasant stone for jewelers to work with.
