Absolutely Gorgeous - pictures don't do this one justice! 280 diamonds and 28 glowing natural pink sapphires light this gorgeous vintage estate tennis bracelet up like Christmas! With a total of 5.46ct in gems, this elegant & oh-so-feminine bracelet is both a daytime & evening-wear dream! Glitzy but not gawdy, she's superbly crafted by designer Gregg Ruth, known around the world for his luxury diamond & gem pieces.
Coming in at 3.58ct, the darling pink sapphires are round cut and multi-bead prong set for a very secure hold on them. Each sapphire measures approximately 3.05 to 3.10mm, with totally eye clean 'slightly included' clarity (as are most sapphires) and 'good' cutting. They glow like diamonds, emitting a bright baby pink to deeper reddish-pink depending on the lighting.
Each circular link holds one sapphire, surrounded by 10 round brilliant cut diamonds. Measuring 1.20 - 1.25mm per diamond, the 280 diamonds total just under 2cts combined, at 1.88ct (appraisal states 1.88ct; stamp on bracelet shows 1.97ct). They too are very fine quality, grading VS-SI clarity and white G-H color, also with good cuts. I can't describe how beautiful this bracelet is in words, and as mentioned, the pictures only do it so much justice! She's just beautiful & SOOO feminine!
Certified several years ago, at the time the retail replacement value was $9,150 CDN. Today, you could expect that value to have appreciated somewhat, with the growing gold prices (this beauty weighs a substantial 16.50g of 18kt gold) and the importance of exquisite colored gemstones, like the gorgeous natural pink sapphires in it! Add the designer name into the equation, and you have yourself one very fine & valuable keepsake!
Stamped (as shown) with 'K18', 'Gregg Ruth', PS3.58 and D1.97, with a box clasp & safety eight-lock clasp, the bracelet locks very securely and measures a wearable 7 inches in length. The only problem you're going to face with this magnificent beauty is not wanting to take it off!
A treasure not to be missed this coming holiday season, if bracelets are your go-to accessory, or you feel like whispering in someone's ear for Christmas or an upcoming birthday or anniversary, don't hold back! She's worth every penny and every ooohhh & ahhhhh!!
