Blue Topaz Silver Vintage Solitaire Engagement Ring - Faceted Stacking Ring
This timeless Blue Topaz Vintage-style Classic Silver Solitaire Engagement Ring features a 6 mm (approximately 1 carat) sparkling Swiss Blue Topaz securely held in a six-prong mounting. Since its introduction in 1886, this has become the most popular style of engagement ring. This version features delicate shoulder detailing, and tapers gracefully to a 1 mm wide band.
Blue Topaz is the birthstone of December, and this ring makes a beautiful birthstone ring, an lovely promise or engagement ring, or just a special love token. Although this ring isn't wide enough for our inside ring engraving, it pairs well with many of the other bands we offer!
When I first began working at the jewelry store that was my first job, I was puzzled to learn that the typical four-prong solitaire mounting that I had grown up seeing was actually considered one of the least secure ring mountings. The jeweler would often shake his head over the number of these broken mountings that found their way across his bench. The reasoning was simple. With a four-prong mounting, if one of the prongs becomes damaged there is a fairly good chance that the stone may be lost. However, with a six-prong mounting, losing or damaging a prong will not lead to loss and sorrow - there are five other prongs that hold the stone safe.
