The color and cutting of this particular sapphire are truly spectacular. The color is a yummy bubble gum pink; to us this is the perfect shade. It's not too light, it's not too dark, it's not lavender or red. Just a gorgeous pretty pink! The sapphire is radiant cut, a type of faceting that you rarely see in pink sapphire. The fine cutting brings out the brilliance of the sapphire. The sapphire does have one tiny imperfection that is 0.6mm in size. This is very very small. It is only visible at certain angles and is located near the edge of the stone at the 4 o'clock position. The absolutely stunning color and cut of this sapphire far outweigh the tiny birthmark and so we believe that you will fall in love with this sapphire, just as we have, once you see it in person. The sapphire is flanked on either side by a large baguette diamond, each weighing near 1/4 carat! Smaller baguette diamonds (ten on each side) are channel set in the band and the diamonds extend just over half way around the ring. The diamonds are of exceptional quality and truly show the sapphire in its best light. The faceting and shape of the diamonds complements the sapphire beautifully. This ring is elegant, classy, and eye catching. Can you imagine how she'll feel when you present this exquisite ring to her? We're sure she will fall in love all over again.
