Sapphire and Diamond Pendant in 18ct white gold.
I've always had a weakness for nice, pear shape, stones and these two made a bit of a perfect storm. I was offered a Red Spinel and this Sapphire after one of my favourite dealers had returned from a Sri Lankan trip and I couldn't resist the Sapphire. It has such a lovely colour with a great sparkle, particularly at the lower end. A week later I spotted the Diamond. With such a great colour Sapphire I wanted to pair it with a near colourless Diamond and this F colour was perfect. The clarity is great also and most engagement rings don't have this combination of quality.
Now on to the bits you want to know.
The pendant measures approximately 24mm top to bottom, approximately 6mm wide at the widest point and stands approximately 5mm high when worn. Both stones are securely held within a 3 claw setting letting the maximum amount of the stone to be seen from the front. The pendant loop is generous and will take a larger chain than the one I include (but you can have the pendant on it's own, see the options), but I feel the pendant is the star and the chain is simply to hold it in place.
If you choose the chain option, you will be getting an 18ct white gold Spiga chain, measuring approximately 18" in length and finished off with a trigger clasp.
Sapphire Details: Approximately 1.65ct, measuring approximately 8.6mm x 6mm. This is a very nice, rich, blue colour. This stone is heat treated as is the case with the vast majority of Sapphires. This is a traditional treatment, not like the many Beryllium diffused stones you can find.
Diamond Details: Approximately 0.31cts, measuring approximately 6.12mm x 3.92mm. GIA certificate stating F colour, VVS2 clarity.
Marks/Metal: The mount is made entirely of 18ct white gold and bears a full UK hallmark.
Please note that although both I and the dealer that sourced this stone believe it to be of Sri Lankan origin, there is no origin report to confirm this.
I know that colour is difficult to communicate on a website and many colours are very much artificial which is why the last image is of various pieces. The trickery you would use for blue stones won't work for purple or Orange etc.
Thank you for looking and please have a look around the other items in my shop.
