The ring displays colorless "F" diamonds and transparent blue sapphires. There are thirteen (13) transparent blue sapphires in all. The ring has nine (9) square step-cut blue sapphires, and four (4) pentagon shaped blue sapphires. Approximate weight of the sapphires is .65 carats. In addition to the 13 blue sapphires, there are thirty-eight (38) full cut, COLORLESS diamonds with an approximate weight of 1.9 carats. Each diamond graded to "F" color ( colorless ), and VS-2 clarity.
The approximate COMBINED weight of the sapphires and diamonds is 2.55 CARATS. The ring weight is approximately 7.7 DWT.
Step-cut sapphires offer broad, uninterrupted expanses of color. Step-cuts are reserved for highly transparent sapphire rough, with outstanding color. A step-cut is not used on low-grade gems due to revealing too many of the stones shortcomings. When a step-cut can be used, the purpose is solely to reveal the fine quality of a fine transparent blue sapphire. The parallel arrangement of the step-cut facets allows the cutters to adjust the finished stone's proportions to the shape of the rough crystal. Examples of step-cuts include the square step-cut and the emerald cut. Larger sapphires are rarely given brilliant cuts, more often the larger and higher quality sapphires are step-cut like on this lovely piece.
