Philippe Tournaire invented this ring thanks to a sapphire bought in 1996. He then called it Opera because it had a slender shape which made him think of the movements of opera sets.
This sapphire I found very beautiful but it was a little high. I then tried to offset it to put the stone in the center of the hand, so that the breech finds itself between two fingers and that it is not too imposing when worn, the breech being very thick. Then I had to dress the other side of the jewel, with a wand and a round that I place a little higher to protect the stone.
I've named it Opéra, because the ring has a slender shape that makes me think of the movements of opera sets. The opening in the middle of the ring gives lightness to the whole, this compensates the presence of the large stone.
