WHY WE LOVE IT
According to the gem lab report, GIA calls this hue purplish-pink, which is really just a touch of blue. The color is very saturated, and is distributed evenly throughout the sapphire. The light that the facets play off of make the gem look crisp and lively in a very clear stone. The old mine diamonds have these beautifully irregular shapes and angles that give it the subdued but also crisp brilliance you’d expect from an antique ring.
This is one of the most-low profile vintage rings we’ve had in a while! This ring has simple lines but the elements are extraordinary.
