Estate Natural Unheated 10ctw Sapphire & Diam Earrings
Absolutely exquisite natural, unheated sapphire and diamond Estate earrings! These gorgeous earrings are made of platinum and 18kt yellow gold and portray the infamous Princess Diana diamond and sapphire design. Each adorns a single, very large, oval shaped sapphire stone that rests in the center of a border of diamonds. The sapphires weigh approximately 10ct tw and according to their appraisal, show no indication of heat treatment as indicated by AGTA Report (which comes with purchase). The stones are natural blue sapphires and have a faceted face and pointed faceted back. The rich, vibrant stone is set in a platinum milgrained bezel and prong setting and surrounded by 17 sparkling Brilliant Cut diamonds. These diamonds have an approximate total weight of 1.75ct tw, G-H color and VS1-VS2 clarity. The earrings hang from a single diamond surmount that rests at the base of a gold leverback earrings wire, each being stamped "750". The earrings were appraised by an independent and accredited Gemologist in November 2005 and have a state retail replacement value of $28,000.00. They are beautifully handmade and simply a work of art. The earrings are absolutely stunning and would be fabulous for a special collection!

Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is excellent. There is no apparent damage to the platinum and gold setting and all of the diamonds and sapphires are intact. The leverback clasps are secure and in good working condition.
