The setting is elegant and architectural, with stepped shoulders. The gem is mounted in a bulbous, tapering, open-back base. The bezel is decorated with a milgrain edge, and the sapphire is further secured with four tapering, claw-like prongs. Band tapers from the shoulders. Marked 14k.

Notes

I had this stone removed from the setting and re-cut, to crisp up the facets; carat weight is exact for this reason. A GIA certified appraisal is included with this ring— appraised value is $11,950.
