Princess cuts are the most difficult cut to find for sapphires. By design they carry more weight in the pavilion or underneath the stone and as such are less appealing to foreign cutting houses. A beautiful find is this AAA+ rated Ceylon princess cut sapphire that weighs 1.04 carats and is considered top of the line for its rich primary cornflower blue color, superb clarity and precision cut and spectacular vibrant blue brilliance.
Framed by the elegant polished gold lines of a bezel setting the sapphire is surrounded in a sea of pave set round brilliant diamonds that are 0.50 carats total weight and have TOP grades of VS1 clarity and E color! The ring weighs 4.2 grams and is a size 7 (please request resizing on your order form). All jewelry items are hand crafted original designs by Jill Underhill of Color Symphony Jewelers (http//www.ColorSymphony.com). All rings also include complimentary resizing. This item also includes complimentary shipping.
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.
