You could say that Mr. Zhao enjoyed the finer things. His garages were filled with the world's most expensive cars; his wine cellar held every rare vintage imaginable. Through all of his pursuits, there were two things that remained closest to his heart: his admiration of fine gemstones and his love for his daughters. When he found a gem that was truly superior, he named after one of his offspring.
He christened his favorite emerald for Angela, his favorite ruby for Vanessa. But finding a stone that equaled his admiration for his youngest daughter took some effort. Finally, Mr. Zhao's personal gem buyer came across a ring that held so rare a collection of blue diamonds that he soon dubbed it "The Eyes of Rebecca" for his favorite daughter. It's his ring that we have recreated. Diamonds are more commonly colored yellow, brown, or colorless. The rare blue diamond is created when boron mixes with carbon while the gem is forming. Their vivid hue is mesmerizing, and their color is synonymous with royalty and power.
"The thing is, white diamonds are not really worth what everyone's been told their worth," says Aja Raden, author of the gem book "Stoned." "They don't have the rarity that's been claimed for decades. Colored diamonds actually do."
To recreate this elegant piece of jewelry, we've compiled 19 color-enhanced genuine blue diamond rounds for a stunning 1-carat total weight beauty. Fashioned in .925 sterling silver and set in an elegant design, we're confident that this is one of the best rings we've ever crafted.
For his ring, Mr. Zhao paid nearly the cost of one of his houses. But as you're dealing directly with Stauer, we're able to bring it to you for a price that won't give you the blues. Don't let this deal pass you by. As Mr. Zhao likes to say, you have to strike while the iron is hot. After all, the Eyes of Rebecca don't fall on just anyone.
