Man's wedding band in white gold with blue sapphires

Featured Design No. SS6985MS-B


There are countless reasons to choose a sapphire-studded band for your groom-to-be: from luck to fidelity to virtue, sapphires have been used as symbolic gifts since ancient times. Sapphire is said to be the stone of intuition, and a sapphire wedding band is a classically unique way to tell your guy that your mind and heart are set on him for life.


Our gentlemen’s collection, Artin, was named after Kirk Kara’s father and created for the man who appreciates timeless craftsmanship, precision, and artistic detail. For us, sapphire jewelry isn’t just lucky, it’s part of our heritage. During their courtship, Kirk Kara created a one-of-a-kind sapphire pendant for his wife, Lucy. Because of this iconic piece, sapphires have remained central to our vintage-inspired design collections.


Inspired by classic masculine design, bold detail and connectedness, this breathtaking band from our Artin Collection features vibrant sapphires for luck. Brilliantly shining satin finish, rows of intricately-detailed milgrain edging, and expressively bold, round sapphires comprise this wearable work of art.

Your guy will be absolutely enamored with our creative process: Each bead of our delicate milgrain edging is meticulously hand-created with a special engraver’s tool; each gemstone is hand-sorted, selected, and matched for color, then hand-cut to fit his own architecturally stunning wedding band. Start talking to your groom-to-be today about the option of a gemstone engagement band, and be sure to browse each of our stunning Artin Collection designs!
