This sapphire holds pools of brilliant blue light—it outflashes even the diamonds, which themselves are of high quality (F in colour, VS in clarity).The designer chose a setting to highlight the exquisite gemstone, and the craftsman jeweller spent weeks creating the setting and mounting the sapphire and diamonds, all by hand. It is in a ‘rub-over’ setting to hold the stone without the usual ‘claws’, so nothing mars the beauty of the sapphire. This calls for a jeweller of immense skill.
Precious sapphires of this size and colour are not seen in the general run of stones. Furthermore, the craftsmanship required to handle the stone so that it shows its full beauty creates a work of art. The 18 diamonds are round brilliant cut, especially white (F in colour) and VS in quality, flawless to the naked eye, together weighing .93 carats. The setting is 18ct white gold.
There is one only.
