Star sapphire ring
sapphire which are aligned at 120 degrees to each other. It is important to have a clearly defined, central star with equal length arms. As you see, this is a fine example, probably from Sri Lanka, with a lively sapphire, evenly coloured, and a delicate shade of dove-grey.
The calculated weight of the sapphire is just over 20 carats, and the platinum mount is set with small circular diamonds, with five marquise-cut diamonds on each shoulder, with a total of approximately 1 carat. It is a substantial looking ring - the head is approximately 20 x 20mm overall
