Exceptional 2.62 Carat Kashmir Sapphire and Diamond Ring - AGL
The finest, rarest and most desirable and collectable blue corundum--Kashmir sapphires--descend from a remote part of the Himalayan Mountains known as the Zanskar range. When the Maharaja of Kashmir heard about this magnificent gem, he posted guards outside of the mines to protect their value. High-quality stones from this locality are extremely rare and production has been very limited. This exceptional 2.62 carat oval stone that centers this ring is about as fine as they come - it has an extraordinary vibrancy, depth of color, and the gorgeous velvety/silky texture that is characteristic of sapphires from Northwest India. In addition to being exceptionally pure, it's glorious color is further accentuated on each side by a sparkling, bright-white antique oval diamond - together weighing 1.40 carats. An utterly ravishing and remarkable beauty. Hand fabricated in 18K gold - circa 1880-1900. *We have not repolished the century-plus old gemstone, but will be happy to upon the request of the new owner. Accompanied by gemological report from the AGL stating: No Gemological Evidence of Heat - Kashmir origin. Currently ring size 7.
