Monumental 18K Gold, Sterling Silver, with a Large Center Cabochon Amethyst with Cabochon Diamonds and Emeralds and inspired by SEVAN
Istanbul is the only city in the world that stretches across two continents. Connecting Europe with Asia, the city straddles more than the Bosphorus River, it straddles cultures. As a child, Sevan Bicakci lived on a street with a church, mosque and temple three different beliefs that serve as inspiration for the very eniGMatic jewelry designer now known simply as Sevan.
"Where I am from, rings are the mirrors of the personality of the wearer. They tell all about the wearer," says Sevan Inspired by the early 20th-century Arts and Crafts movement, Sevan rebelled against mass production. Incorporating non-jewelry techniques, such as stained-glass and mosaic, into his work, Sevan earned a new reputation in the Grand Bazaar, this time inspiring other artisans to join him.
SEVAN is sold at Stanley Korshak in Dallas and Barney's Each piece is a one-of-a-kind made with the most precious of metals and stones The more laborious pieces involve micro-mosaic, a Sevan signature and Reverse hand-carvings are another signature. Sevan personally carves each stone from underneath, depicting remarkably detailed, three-dimensional sculptures.
SEVAN is the inspiration for the ring we are showing here. It was made as a "One-of-a-Kind" for Saks Fifth Avenue I believe that it was also made in Istanbul by a fine craftsman. It is a large Bold Wide Important Ring made of Oxidized Sterling Silver with 18K Gold It is made like standing fingers each housing an 18K Gold Bezel with a Dome of a Natural Cabochon Stone The Main Center Stone is a 14mm Cabochon beautifully rich AmethystAll the other stones are also Cabochons 10 of them are Emeralds and 6 are diamonds. The yellow Gold is the accent both in the front and the back of the ring. The ring is stamped both 18K and 925. It is a Size 6 1/2 and comes in its original SAKS FIFTH AVENUE Box. It is 1 1/2" wide x 1" Tall x 3/4" Deep This ring is really a show stopper. It is NOT SEVAN, by any stretch of the imagination But Sevan prices start at about $10,000. However, it does have the same kind of fashion look and is made from precious metals & all the stones are Authentic as well. It can be sized if needed The logo and 925 and 18K are marked on the inside with a very shallow indent
