Behind Ricardo Basta's Royal Blue Saphire Quilt Ring
It all started with a 12 ct blue Sapphire and a concept to create maximum versatility for a piece of jewelry worn more than any other accessory, the engagement ring. In combining the best of Sapphire, Diamonds and Platinum within a quilt of Turquoise and Tsavorite Garnet, Ricardo Basta and his team of craftsmen were able to do just that.
With this concept, an engagement ring once known for being classically consistent, can change its reputation at the drop of a hat, and of course, a change of a custom quilt.
