What a fabulous 1950's cocktail ring this is! Ladies of the 50's knew how to catch your eye, and this ring is a knockout with its 11.80 carat blue star sapphire, 1.02 carats diamonds, baguettes. Are you familiar with star sapphires? I'm crazy about them. They are usually a cabochon sapphire that reflects a starlike image resulting from its regular internal structure. There is a rare asterism, a 6 rayed star that will appear to float across the surface of the stone. Star sapphires are best viewed under a light source while tilting and rotating the stone from different angles. You will see shades of blue in this lovely blue star sapphire. The beautiful halo of diamonds surrounds the star sapphire, punctuated by two baguette cut diamonds at the east and west of the ring. Absolutely beautiful!
There is one prong set round cabochon cut natural blue star sapphire, measuring 11.50 x 11.20 x 9.30mm, weighing approximately 11.80, medium light, grayish, blue violet color, moderately included, with a good cut. The stone is a six ray star with medium intensity and good movement. Surrounding the star sapphire are 12 bezel set round brilliant cut diamonds, with a bright, white H/I color, beautiful clarity of VS2-SI2, with a good cut, weighing approximately 1.02 carats. Two channel set baguette cut diamonds, weigh approximately 30/100 of a carat, with a bright, white I/J color, & VS1 clarity. The total diamond weight is 1.32 carats.
The ring is stamped & tested palladium, with 95% fineness of pure palladium, one of the rarest metals in the world. Palladium will not tarnish, is always shiny, will never need rhodium plating. It is harder wearing than gold or platinum and is hypo-allergenic. What a beautiful setting! The ring measures 5/8ths of an inch from top to bottom and 3/4 of an inch from east to west. It sits up 3/8ths of an inch from the hand. The ring is size 4, which can be easily sized up or down by a good jeweler. The total piece weighs 6.31 grams.
