We recently completed this stunning new chrysoprase wedding ring set. This unique chrysoprase wedding set is inlaid with three pieces of chrysoprase on each side of three sparkling white sapphires. The white sapphires are pave` set in a triangle cluster and at first glance appear to be one bigger trillion cut stone. The total weight of the white sapphires in his ring is .12 carats and her ring is .09 carats. This set is shown in sterling silver but the set is also available in 14 karat gold or platinum for an additional charge.
For those not familiar with chrysoprase, it is a rare form of chalcedony or quartz. Chrysoprase ranges from light to dark green but is most sought after in its striking apple green color. Chrysoprase is rare due to the fact that it is cryptocrystalline. This means that instead of being formed by large six sided crystals, the size of the crystals are extremely small and cannot be seen as distinct particles under normal magnification. Chrysoprase has a hardness of 6.5 to 7 on the Moh’s scale and is in the same stone family as agate, carnelian, and onyx. Because chrysoprase is so hard, it is highly suitable for inlay and will stand up to daily wear and tear in a wedding ring. The best known sources of chrysoprase are Queensland Australia, Germany, Poland, Russia, Arizona, California, and Brazil. The chrysoprase in this wedding ring set is from Australia.
This his and hers matching ring set will be made to order in your ring sizes in 4 to 6 weeks. All of our jewelry is handmade by the Hileman family in our Arizona studio. This set may also be customized by changing the inlay from chrysoprase to dinosaur bone, turquoise, opal or any of the other stones you see on our website.
