Welcome to my shop, The Strands of Time. I hope that you will enjoy browsing through the fine vintage and antique jewelry items in the shop and find something that is special. Please refer to “Terms of Sale” on each page.
Stones created in a lab are chemically, physically and optically identical to those mined from the earth. They're not gem imitations. Lab-created gemstones are real.
Purple sapphires are among the rarest. This pretty 14K white gold ring features a beautiful lab grown purple sapphire. Each shoulder has round diamond accents. The ring is size 6 3/4 and weighs 3.2 grams.
The setting is 5/16 inch north/south, 11/16 inch east/west and sits 3/16 inch off the finger.
The sapphire is 8mm x 7.2mm x 5.5mm and weighs about 2.53 carats. If this sapphire were earth mined, it would sell in excess of $1000 per carat. Even a gem quality lab grown purple sapphire of this size would cost over $600.
Circa 1980's, the ring is in excellent vintage condition. It is hallmarked "14K."
I am always open to reasonable offers but, if items are reduced or on sale, they are already at the lowest prices.
Thank you for visiting my shop and please come back again. I add new items regularly.
NOTE: I offer lay-a-way services for all items. Please refer to “Terms of Sale” on each page.
