Blue sapphires run the gamut in hue from inky blue-blacks to the palest of baby blues. Being natural, no two are exactly alike, and in particular, the lighter colors show off their understated variations.
In this 2.96 carat emerald cut, the coloration is a true cornflower blue with undertones of lilac. It boasts that no heat was applied, and therefore displays a subtle shift in tone when exposed to different light temperatures (sunlight to incandescent for instance).
It sweeps from a bluer cornflower to a paler hue with violet hints.
Vintage in date, in a French platinum setting, minimalism allows this stellar gemstone to perform center stage. An open work S curve defines each face of the under gallery.
