Description

With so few quality star sapphires available as every day passes, it’s one of the pleasures of my job when one passes through my hand. This certainly is one of the finest I’ve found. It’s a bit over 9 carats (9.3 to be exact), with a rich electric blue color and one of the finest stars I’ve found. The AGL(American Gemological Laboratory) rates the star as

  • Strength of Star: Strong to Moderate
  • Quality of Star: Very Good

The way the stone was cabbed (Star sapphires are considered cabbed not cut) it maximizes the physical dimensions of the stone, but this also maximizes the stars true potential for magnificence.

This ring itself is a substantial mount of solid 14K yellow gold weighing ~9.3 grams

In my career of about 20 years, this is one of the two finest stars sapphires I’ve ever acquired, since it has that extremely rare combination of having a very strong 6-legged star AND a translucent body

Did you know that for every 100 faceted sapphire that are mined, approximately three stars are discovered.

One will have good color and a bad star.
One will have a great star and bad color.
Only one out of a hundred will have a good star and good color.
Some of the more interesting lore behind star sapphires:
The three crossed rays of the asterism are said to symbolize faith, hope and destiny.
People have thought that they had demons or angels of light living in them. And because they turned dark at night, they were thought to go to sleep, just like people.
People have worn them for protection from evil spirits or attackers, they carried them in medicine and healing pouches, they are powerful spirits in the shamanistic world.
People use them for saying and seeing the future or for objects of meditation. They are said to speak for, or are the voices of the mineral world spirits.
The stars in all stones are believed to increase the gemstones magical powers, because it’s the all seeing eye of the spirit contained in the stone.
They speak only when in the light and their voice is one of movement and shadow light shades. They are the symbol of the heavens.
