5.09 millimeters in diameter and weighs a massive 2.43 carats! The
color is a rich and even textbook cornflower blue. It is VS in clarity with
very few naturals visible only under x10 or higher magnification. ANY
imperfections you may see in the photos below are reflections from the camera
lens only! This sapphire has a fantastic cut and the facets catch the light at
every angle. The sapphire is complimented by two tapered baguettes weighing
.10 points each for a combined weight of .20 carats. They are VS
in clarity and G/H in color. Clear as glass and rain water white. The
metal content is solid platinum (hallmarked inside the shank) and the
gram weight is a very lofty 4.5 grams. The ring is currently a
size 4.25 but can easily be resized. Please note we do not
photoshop our images to enhance or alter color! All images below were
taken using NATURAL indirect lighting and incandescent light ONLY. No
fluorescent lighting used. Estimated retail value of this piece is over
$10,000. The GIA dossier has a value of $350 by itself. Please scroll
down to see details of the report. Circa 1940 - 1960's.
photos have been enlarged to show detail so please refer to the dimensions
listed in the sale for the ring's actual size.
