Heaven-like Ceylon sapphire, diamond and platinum ring
Sapphire’s beauties go far beyond blue—but it is blue which was first recorded in Biblical times as the ‘heaven-like sappir’. This one, straight from Hatton Garden this month, is special: it shines and flashes like a scintillating blue moon, and at nearly one and a half carats it is mesmerizing—a lively, square-cut stone surrounded by diamonds: it really ‘speaks’ to the viewer. It caught our eye because it is so beautiful, as well as being a beautifully designed ring. Any woman will fall in love with it.
Ceylon sapphires are prized, and the sapphire in this ring is an ethereal, typically Ceylon sapphire blue—totally natural. With coloured sapphires, the clearer and more vivid the colour, the more valuable the stone. This one, while lighter than the deep cornflower blues, has stunning depth of colour and transparency, and a gorgeous crystalline clarity. It is full of life, dancing with light. Its quality is matched by that of 32 round brilliant cut diamonds, which glitter along the split shank.
The diamonds are very white (F in colour, VS quality) and weigh .36 carats. The sapphire weighs 1.41 carats. The setting is platinum. All our precious jewellery is fully hallmarked in England. It carries an insurance certificate at the full retail value and a full 100% moneyback guarantee. If you do not know the correct ring size, it can be adjusted later, without charge. RRP £6,050. CCUK £2,979.
