Art Deco Unheated 1.95ct Burma Blue Sapphireand Diamond Platinum Ring GIA Certified
A Simply stunning Art Deco ring c.1935 featuring a wonderful Unheated 1.95ct Burma Blue Sapphire from the famed gem mines of Mogok in Burma (Myanmar). The colour of this magnificent gemstone is an almost pure hue of blue, absolutely gorgeous! Bear in mind that the light in Chicago, as an example, may not be so bright this time of year! Clarity is extremely good for the gem genre and this is a bright and vibrant stone, as evidenced in the pics. The gem is not quite eye clean but overall clarity is *excellent* for the gem genre. Note however that we are using a macro lens and this is barely visible with the naked eye. Cutting is good and the stone has a decent face for its weight, without major windowing. The cut is slightly asymmetrical. Lustre and brilliancy are both wonderful, and this is an extremely vibrant gem indeed. The diamonds total 0.30ct and are clean and white. The metal is 10% iridium 90% platinum, indistinctly stamped in the shank, and diagnostic of the jewel’s age. The ring has numerous tiny scratches commensurate with its age and unpolished state. Size 6.75. The stone comes complete with a certificate from GIA as attached, evidencing colour blue, origin Myanmar, no treatment.
