Sapphire Power: 20K Yellow Gold Sugarloaf Cabochon Ring with 22.51-Carat Blue Sapphire
If you’re looking for a “power jewel” that shouts strength and confidence, this one’s for you. At its center is a whopping 22.51-carat blue sapphire with a fascinating display of inclusions, fashioned as a sugarloaf cabochon set in 20-karat yellow gold.
The sugarloaf cabochon, considered one of the most desirable and rare types of cabochon, is crafted in a conical shape, with a flat base and four sloping sides that meet at a point at the top resembling a pyramid.
The pyramids of ancient Egypt, royal tombs for their pharaohs or kings, have always been a symbol of power and permanence. They’re often described with their smooth, angled sides as a representation of the sun’s rays helping the king’s soul ascend to heaven and join the gods, particularly Ra, the sun god of ancient Egypt. Fitting then, to see how this spectacular stone plays with the light to reveal its otherworldly beauty.
