Sterling silver wedding band featuring 2 channel set blue sapphires accented by inlaid lapis and Australian opal. The two princess cut blue sapphires have a total weight of .16 carats and are high quality. The inlaid blue lapis harmonizes nicely with the dark blue Australian opal's blue and green fire. This woman's wedding ring measures about 5.5mm wide and is a size 7. The ring is available in other sizes and color combinations by special order in 4 to 6 weeks. It is hand signed "MMH" by Mark Hileman on the inside of the ring. A matching man's wedding band is available if you would like to wear this ring as a wedding band. Here is the listing link:

**I recommend upgrading to Continuum sterling silver for all wedding ring or heavy wear jewelry. It will be much more durable than standard sterling silver and should extend the life of your jewelry. Read more about this great new metal option here:

Lapis Lazuli has been highly valued for many thousands of years. The most famous locality for fine quality lapis lazuli is the same ancient deposit high in the mountains of Afganistan where it was originally mined at least 6000 years ago.

The value of lapis is determined almost exclusively by color, with deep, intense, blue with violet tones being at the apex. Fine grained, uniform specimens, such as the ones used in this ring, attain a smooth highly polished surface not seen in lower grades. Calcite inclusions always lower the value, but pyrite inclusions enhance it in the minds of many collectors and jewelry lovers. The quality of polish, and the artistry of fashioning are also factors in value.

As you can see from the photos, this is very high grade lapis with no calcite and a few specks of pyrite in some of the pieces.

Frequently asked questions about TheHilemanCollection

It is very important that you give us your correct size when ordering as it is difficult to adjust the size without using a laser welder and risking damage to the ring. The paper finger sizers you might find on the internet and print out are not accurate so please do not use them. Tracing the inside of the ring and measuring it and measuring around your finger with a string are not accurate either. We have experimented with these methods and found that they vary from a 1/4 size to a full size in error. Please visit a local jeweler (or two) and get your finger sized properly. You should use a sizer that is similar in width to the ring you intend to purchase. The millimeter width of our rings should be included in the description.No guessing!
