The inspiration for this jewel was derived from the inner riches and mysteries of a Ceylon sapphire. The dynamic and expressive inclusion, reminiscent of the arched spine of a seahorse, inspired this masterpiece’s design.
With a trained eye for exceptional beauty and unparalleled gemmological know-how, our talented designers took inspiration from the elegant seahorse and created a unique masterpiece which they aptly named The Story of the Seahorse. The seemingly delicate creatures are marvels of nature, their surprising strength adding to their fascination.
Reminding Gübelin’s jewellery designers of the elegant curved shape of the seahorse’s tail, two elegant vertebrae were created to anchor the beautiful centre stone of the magnificent ring.
The fascinating cushion-shape sapphire from Sri Lanka whose inclusion inspired its design, weighing 23.23 ct, is destined to take centre stage in The Story of the Seahorse ring.
Carefully selected by Gübelin’s experienced specialists, the 32 pear-shape diamonds are set along the mesmerising platinum vertebrae of the masterpiece.
Gübelin’s leading gem setter highlights the design of the jewel with the rare Sri Lankan sapphire for the first time, a unique and intimate moment in the creation of this unique piece.
While the last stages to its completion are about to take place, the magnificent centre stone awaits to crown The Story of the Seahorse ring.
The last of the 174 fine brilliant-cut diamonds are set, surrounding the intriguing sapphire at the centre of this masterpiece.
A synthesis of devotion and attention to detail in which 200 handset gemstones are carefully arranged to highlight the 23.23 ct Sri Lankan sapphire at their centre. The Story of the Seahorse ring perfectly embodies Gübelin's appreciation for and inspiration by nature's magnificent beauty.
