She has a thing for orange. She was sure she wanted orange fire opal for her center stone in her engagement ring. However, it is not a great stone for everyday ware. It is quite soft. So, I introduced her to padparadscha sapphire. (Lab created). It has a great intense orange color and is 9 on the mohs scale and it would be a fully faceted stone. I drew up some designs based on her wish list. We custom made a stunning ring with two diamonds flanking the 1/2 bezel set padparadscha in 14k super white gold. We incorporated the same orange stones in his wedding band. It made for a wonderful wedding set in orange.
