Oval Blue Sapphire Silver Scroll and Starburst Pattern Engagement Ring
This Oval Blue Sapphire Ring with Wide Scroll Pattern Band in Sterling Silver has a beautiful Scroll and Starburst pattern band and a sparkling faceted oval 8 mm x 6 mm (approximately 1.25 carats) gemstone. This stone is set in a sterling silver prong mounting that is carefully centered in the pattern of the band.
The ring shown in this picture features a lovely faceted laboratory grown Blue Sapphire, but we create this ring with a wide selection of stone choices.
The stone in this ring is set on a striking Wide Scroll and Starburst Flower Band in Sterling Silver that measures 6 mm wide (approximately .25 inches). The twining flower and gentle swirl motif of this pattern are carefully finished at the band join to make a seamless continuation around the entire band. This band was created from sterling silver that was embossed with a rolling mill and has been carefully curved and smoothed for comfortable wear. This ring is wide enough for our personalized ring engraving, available here.
Scroll decoration has a very long history, and such patterns were an essential element of classical and medieval decoration. The use of scrolls in ornament goes back to at least the Bronze Age; geometric scroll ornament has been found in the Palace of Knossos at Minoan Crete dating to approximately 1800 BC, perhaps drawing from even earlier Egyptian and Mesopotamian styles.
