Customized pave diamond lined prongs hold the center set sapphire which weighs 1.43 carats and measures 6.16 X 4.76 mm.

Excellent color saturation, clarity, luster and tone are more characteristics that place this sapphire in the top of its class.
Expertly faceted the sapphire has additional cuts along the pavilion for added maximum light return which delivers outstanding bright blue brilliance. Joining the sapphire are the skillfully hand pave set round brilliant diamonds which cover the ring's shoulders and the center head piece holding the sapphire.

This gemstone (or gemstone that is part of this piece of gemstone jewelry) has been enhanced by traditional heat treatment. Traditional heat treatment is used to improve a stones color, remove color zoning/banding, and improve clarity. This treatment is considered permanent. The only way to tell if a colored stone has been treated is for the stone to be analyzed by a lab. Generally only gemstone laboratories have the equipment necessary to make a qualified judgement with any certainty.
Untreated gemstones are rare and should be verified by a lab independent of the seller. A good rule of thumb is to always assume a gemstone has been enhanced, unless valid certification from a reputable laboratory is available. No one that sells jewelry or gems should be doing appraisals, certifications, or analysis. It should always be an independent third party with no vested interest in the sale.
