The one of a kind large natural pink sapphire we have used in this ring is, in a word, SPECTACULAR! From the color to the cut to the brilliance, they just don't come any better than this. The shade of pink is an intense rose petal pink which is beautifully saturated and has outstanding faceting. The color play throughout the stone is uniform and the stone does not have a window (a window is an area where the stone has no color and is see through). Because of the exceptional cutting and clarity (the sapphire is nearly loupe clean), the sapphire is also very brilliant and lively. The setting is full of micropave set diamonds with two rows surrounding the sapphire and they continue down the split shank and even adorn the edges of the band where the top of the ring touches the finger. A little sparkle and dazzle from every angle. Since the diamonds are micropave set, the high clarity grade gives them great sparkle, and the wow factor is elegant and not overpowering. The workmanship of the ring is simply impeccable and the entire look is one of tasteful decadence.
