A spectrum of sapphire's awesome beauty is exhibited in this contemporary and bold fashioned pendant. Originating from Ceylon a 1.20 carat electric lemon yellow sapphire is first to be bezel set amidst the swirling gold design.
Next is a vibrant and rich Thai evergreen colored sapphire weighing 0.75 carats, which is followed by an 0.50 carat Madagascan purple, a 0.44 carat Ceylon blue and finally a 0.16 carat Ceylon pink. Each of these sapphires was selected for their top of the line and text book color, clarity and brilliance. Complimenting the beautiful colors and bringing added brilliance to the pendant are three expertly gypsy set round brilliant diamonds that are 0.33 ctw SI2 GH quality.
In total the pendant has 3.38 carats total weight of premium gemstones and diamonds and weighs a very substantial 6.0 grams of 14K yellow gold.
This magnificent piece was designed by Jill Underhill of Color Symphony (http://www.colorsymphony.com) and will be shipped directly from their location in New Hampshire.
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.
