This ring is absolutely breathtaking and is made with one of the finest quality sapphires available. The sapphire has a magnificent velvety and intense cornflower navy blue sapphire, a color that only the rarest sapphires have. And wait until you take this ring outside in the sun, it is even more beautiful and more vivid in color. It is substantial too at over 2 carats in size. This amazing sapphire deserves nothing less than being set in the world's most precious metal, platinum. Platinum is a rare and beautiful naturally white metal that is easy to care for and will not discolor or wear away. The platinum setting is substantial at 7.6 grams but not overly heavy. You will be able to feel the fine quality of the setting but it is not cumbersome. It is very comfortable on the finger. The setting is a diamond halo design that features 18 fine diamonds around the sapphire and another 4 diamonds on each side of the band. The diamonds are near colorless and much better than eye clean. They are the perfect compliment to the outstanding sapphire. There is a scalloped edge around the diamond halo for added design interest and the ring is finished with delicate milgrain detail.
