Named after the hint of gorgeous colour from its 18 carat rose gold band and green sapphire, this open torc ring is a contemporary style of ring that will show off the subtle reflections of its Akoya pearl.

The Akoya pearl is a type of saltwater pearl, traditionally cultured in Japanese coastal waters. The pearl, which measures 7.5-8mm in diameter, has a beautiful lustre and elegant white colour with pink overtone.

The ring is designed so that the pearl rests comfortably against the finger. The 0.3 carat green sapphire is set facing towards the pearl to create an eye-catching touch of colour.

This ring is available in a standard UK size L, which has an inside diameter of 16.3mm and is equivalent to a standard 5¾ size in the United States.

Many of our rings can be ordered in a different size or can be resized to fit your required size. If you would like further information, please Contact Us or download and print our Ring Sizer to check the size of an existing ring.
