Estate 14kt Gold Spiral Star Sapphire Cabochon Ring
This gemstone ring is quite a stylish estate piece! Crafted in 14kt yellow gold, the ring frames a star sapphire at the center of a spiraled border. The star sapphire is smoothly polished into a domed cabochon shape, and is securely bezel set. The stone displays a wonderful periwinkle blue color, and has a soft iridescent star that is faintly visible at the center. Although it is difficult to capture its unique properties in a photograph, the star has a lovely and alluring appearance in person. The textured gold band features a series of grooves, which swoop towards the center, wrapping around the stone to form a spiral formation. The tapered band graduates smoothly towards the back, and has several markings inside, including the serial number "30439," and a partial engraving that reads "Harry 2-15-4." A wonderful and unique gemstone ring, it would make a lovely addition to any jewelry collection!
Measurements: The ring has a small finger size of 4.75, but could be easily re-sized as needed. The star sapphire and surrounding spiral border measures about 1/2" in diameter. The star sapphire alone measures approximately 8mm in diameter. When worn, the centerpiece rests about 3/8" above the finger. The tapered gold band measures 1.5mm wide at the back.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting. The star sapphire is securely set, and is free of any apparent damage. There are some natural inclusions visible within the stone, which is a normal characteristic of genuine gemstone jewelry, and adds to its organic beauty.
