Lyra Morganite and Diamond ring From Yael Designs

Yesterday, I was scrolling through my Facebook feed, when I came upon this spectacular Morganite ring, from Yael Designs. I knew I had to share it with all of you, as the gem therapy to take you into the weekend.

I happen to be a total gem nerd and the beauty of this stone just took my breath away. The pleochroism* this stone displays just knocks my socks off. Those gradations of pink and orange remind me of a magnificent sunset, and the warmth of the rose gold only enhances that buttery, sunny effect.

The morganite ring was a custom collaboration between Julie and Steve Weintraub of Clearwater, Florida based Gold & Diamond Source. The center stone weighs in at 18.36 carats with 2.34 carats of sparkling, round brilliant, pave set, diamonds. It’s set in warm and inviting 18k rose gold. The ring’s suggested  retail is $11,900.

I’ve been following the work of Yael Designs for quite some time now, and I am a huge fan. I love the way they work with precious and semi precious stones taking nature’s beauty and forming it, into a stellar piece, of wearable art. Working with gemstones is not always an easy task-taking something already naturally beautiful and enhancing that beauty is no small feat- but Yael designs manages to do it time and time again.

Check out their website for some more amazing and drool-worthy pieces.

If you were to purchase this ring, on which finger would you wear it? Special occasions only or would it never leave your finger?
