    Gemstone: Sapphire - 8.16 Cts.

    This pear shaped Sapphire is stunning. At first glance, the viewer's eye is drawn to different areas of the 8+ carat gem. This Sapphire from "Down Under" has a modified brilliant cut with a nice transparency. The highlight of this stone is the unique and highly visible color zoning habit. According to the accompanying GIA certification (#5192526517), the color is stated as "zoned blue and yellow" with no indications of heating. This type of color zoning is known as "Parti-Colored." These stones offer a natural polychrome Sapphire option, and this material is garnering attention as an alternative to the classic Diamond engagement ring. This eye-clean stunner is in excellent condition and dazzles the viewer with flashes of green. As one of the "Big Three" gems, this stone begs to be set into jewelry and worn often.
    Measurements: 17.47 x 10.18 x 6.52 mm, 8.16 cts.

    Accompanied by GIA Certificate #5192526517
