Beautiful & unique 'bypass' style unheated sapphire & diamond ring! Set with a delightful natural certified purple unheated sapphire and accented by flush-set round brilliant cut diamonds, this sophisticated ladies ring can be worn day or night to accent any number of outfits!
As quoted from the Natural Sapphire Company, "Purple sapphires are quite uncommon because fine stones are difficult to find in steady quantities. Most fine purple sapphires have the same color as top quality amethyst, the most common of the purple gemstones. Purple sapphires should not be thought to look exactly like amethyst by any means. Sapphires reflect and refract light far stronger than amethyst, and are exponentially harder and more durable. Purple sapphires will last a lifetime, whereas amethyst will dull, scratch and possibly fracture with normal wear."
Hand-set in stamped 14kt yellow gold, the beautiful pear-cut purple sapphire weighs 2.05ct, measuring 9.87 x 6.59 x 4.08mm, and is certified as 'unheated'. This darling sapphire exudes a wonderful shift in tone in incandescent lighting, as shown in our 3rd image, ranging from a bright & vivid purple in regular lighting, to a richer, almost plum-like pink-purple in incandescent! We love how sapphires are pleochroic, creating this wonderful 'color shift' effect.
The ring, certified with a Retail Replacement Value of $7,550.00 CAD ($5700 USD), is designed in a 'bypass' style, where there are 2 ends of gold that don't actually meet. The sapphire is tension-prong set within these 2 'ends' of gold, with a total of 9 diamonds set within the stamped 14kt yellow gold. Totaling 0.12ct, the diamonds grade Si1-I1 clarity, with G-I color and good cuts. Hand-set, each is approximately 1.50-1.60mm round and sit flush bead-set within the gold. The sapphire itself has also been certified by the AIGS (Asian Institute of Gemological Sciences) and that certificate will be included with the appraisal.
The sizing, being a bypass ring, falls between a 5.75 to 6.25, and though it'll be a slightly more difficult job, sizing is possible within a range if needed. Please always inquire first about sizing before placing your order.
Unheated sapphires are rare beauties, and the color purple adds to their rarity that much more! Find some room in your favorite jewelry collection for this wonderful piece!
