Fantastic 18k Sapphire & Diamond Ring
Awesome! That is all I can say. The calibre' cut sapphires on this ring really sparkle in the sun. From the sunshine state, this beauty is looking for a new forever home. Sapphires are violet and blue highly saturated and stand out nicely. This is a bit larger with with a flare to the sides, so cannot be easily stacked. It is more of a stand alone piece. Would make an amazing engagement or anniversary ring. Very light scratching and chips to stones (not eye visible) with no dents or cracks to band. (please view photos). The lovely lady that owns this ring is named Janet and was in the jewelry industry many years ago and is now liquidating a few of her items during the downturn. She was a military brat, raised overseas in Spain and traveled for most of her young life, until settling here in the states as a young adult. With no children of her own, she is looking to find a good home for her jewelry items and has entrusted me to help with this task.

The word sapphire comes from the Greek word "sappheiros" meaning "blue color." It is one of the four precious gemstones, along with diamond, ruby, and the emerald. Blue sapphire is regarded as a stone of mental focus and order, inner vision and psychic awareness. In chakra theory, sapphire is said to help open the third eye to receive wisdom and insight, as well as the throat chakra, which allows you to communicate that vision to others. Associated with deep spirituality and devotion, sapphire is thought to bring peace and contentment to one's soul, as well as trust in the fulfillment of his or her destiny.
Blue sapphire is associated with purity and love. It enhances the wearer’s throat chakra and aids the person’s communication skills. Furthermore, it encourages the wearer to stay on the spiritual path and experience the ultimate healing of mind and body by unplugging all the blockages hindering it.
