Story

As children we all have made wishes in some manner or the other. Whether breaking the Thanksgiving turkey “wishbone”, throwing a coin into a “wishing well” or even blowing out the candles set on a birthday cake. Although many of us might not reveal that even as adults we still have a tendency to continue when we see a shooting star.

Now you can make a wish whenever the desire comes upon you. No need to survey the evening skies... all that is required is to gaze upon your hand and voilà – a wondrous six ray star appears within the dome of this cabochon star sapphire of an estimated 7.25 carats!

Be entranced by this shade of blue – pale lavender to misty blue gray – with a clear and distinct star at the apex of the dome. The sapphire is surrounded by a corona of eighteen (18) white and clear single cut diamonds with a total estimated weight of .23 carats. All set in an icy cool mounting of platinum.

Date: Circa 1965.

**What creates the star? This optical phenomenon is called asterism and occurs when certain gemstones, such as some sapphires that contains minute little fibers of rutile (titanium oxide) in it. Most often they are cut en cabochon (round top flat bottom). The star configuration is made up of concentrated light which moves around when the gem is rotated. Anytime the sunlight hits or when a light is shone upon the gem, the star appears very distinctly.
