A MOST POPULAR DESIGN IN THE 1940’S & 1950’S

RING IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION - NO CRACKS, ETC., AND THE SHANK IS MEDIUM TO LIGHT BUT GOOD FOR MANY MORE YEARS’ WEAR

IN SIZING MY RINGS ARE NEVER “STRETCHED” – THE SHANK IS CUT AND A PIECE ADDED OR REMOVED AND RE-SOLDERED TO THE CORRECT SIZE, POLISHED, SO THE SOLDER LINES ARE NOT VISIBLE

RING WEIGHS 5.5grams – MEDIUM WEIGHT FOR THIS SIZE RING

THE STONE MEASURES 12.4mm X 10mm AND RISES 6mm ABOVE YOUR FINGER - TOP OF RING MEASURES 13.6mm LONG ( .53in.)

25mm = 1 inch

MADE TO LAST A LIFETIME, STONE IS SAPPHIRE, NEXT IN HARDNESS TO DIAMONDS (DIAMONDS ARE 10 ON MOHS SCALE, THIS SAPPHIRE IS 9 ON THE SAME SCALE)

THE STONE CUT IS A "EMERAL FACETED " - MAXIMIZING LIFE AND RICHNESS OF COLOR

THIS REALLY RICH COLORED SAPPHIRE IS MEDIUM IN COLOR, THE LIVELIEST SHADE OF BLUE SAPPHIRE!!

THIS STONE CAME WAS CUT TO FIT THIS OLD RING –THE FINEST LAB CREATED BLUE SAPPHIRE

USING THE "VERNEUIL PROCESS" THE RESULTING STONE RESEMBLES NATURALLY GROWN SAPPHIRE IN EVERY WAY, INCLUDING HARDNESS, RESISTANCE TO SCRATCHING AND CHIPPING, LOSS OF COLOR, AND MOST OF ALL FINENESS OF COLOR

ANY WHITE YOU SEE IN THE STONE IS REFLECTIONS THANKS TO MY MEDIOCRE PHOTOGRAPHY- T ARE NO LINES OR " ZONING" IN THE STONE, JUST REFLECTIONS

THE STONE IS A TRUE SAPPHIRE (CORUNDUM) - FINEST QUALITY LAB-CREATED - AS HARD, SCRATCH RESISTANT, COLOR FAST, AND HEAT RESISTANT AS ONE FROM THE GROUND -ON MOHS SCALE - 9 (DIAMONDS ARE 10)

ESTIMATING STONE OF THIS SIZE, COLOR, AND QUALITY WOULD COME TO $10,000.00 OR MORE IF GROWN IN THE GROUND

EBAY'S DEFINITION AND EXPLANATION ABOUT TERMS FOR STONES:

What is the Difference between Lab Created, Synthetic and Simulated Gemstones?

Lab created, Lab grown and synthetic are synonymous terms. To use either of these terms, according to the FTC, the gemstone must be identical to the natural in every way: Chemical Composition, Hardness, and Optically .

Below is an excerpt from the FTC guidelines for gemstone sales for your reference.

"It is unfair or deceptive to use the word; laboratory-grown, laboratory-created, [manufacturer name]-created, or synthetic with the name of any natural stone to describe any industry product unless such industry product has essentially the same optical, physical, and chemical properties as the stone named."

The key is that Lab Created and Synthetic are identical to the natural. Only difference being it is not from the earth.

No Lab Gemstone is RARE, as the rough can be made anytime.

THIS RING WILL CERTAINLY GIVE ITS WEARER REAL PRIDE OF OWNERSHIP - AND PROUD TO WEAR INTO THE MOST ELEGANT SURROUNDINGS!!!
