Yellow Sapphire and Diamond RingR13250
Yellow Sapphire 5.83cts, Diamond 0.46ct / 2pcs,18k gold
An art deco inspired composition of a Ceylon Yellow Sapphire and diamonds makes this ring a truly bold and stylish choice for an engagement present. A nearly-square octagonal shape, perfectly balanced by two octagonal baguettes, creates the striking geometrical look. The central unheated stone displays a pleasant shade of canary yellow, enhanced by great clarity and luster. The smart choice of proportions for diamonds highlights the prominent appearance of the ring, set in white gold.
Origin: Sri Lanka
***Like other members of the corundum family it is widely imitated and treated, but it is the natural yellow sapphire that concerns us here: a gem of never-ending beauty.***
