A round border of 14 calibrated French cut sapphires surrounds the diamond to form a spectacular gemstone halo complemented by a lovely milgrain frame. With approximately 0.50ctw in total, the French cut sapphires have stunning color, creating a seamless band of deep, vivid blue. Accenting the shoulders of the ring are two baguettes weighing a cumulative approximate .14ctw, and 8 round brilliant diamonds just beneath, with a total cumulative weight of approximately .28ct. adding a gorgeous sparkle. The simple band is consistent in width around the shank and is marked "950" for metal content.
The ring was appraised by an independent and accredited GIA-certified Graduate Gemologist in January of 2023 and has a stated retail replacement value of $25,000.00. When worn, the ring is absolutely breathtaking and impossible to miss. It would make a once-in-a-lifetime engagement ring for someone special!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size 9 but could be resized. The sapphire and diamond centerpiece measures a little less than 1/2" tall and wide and rests 1/8" atop the finger when worn.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the platinum setting and all of the diamonds are intact.
