NOTE: My photo tent lighting is apparently not conducive to photographing asterism. That said the second photo done in rather harsh natural light clearly shows the star phenomenon for both stones From an Indian Ridge estate in Tucson is this 14K yellow gold ring with a lovely duo of 7x5mm pink star sapphires, a nice natural diamond accent in support - a compelling vintage alternative to current mall dross.The design here is both classic in an upscale mid century sort of way, and yet absolutely au courant. The sapphires (I'm assuming the usual synthetic) are well matched, with lovely saturated coloration and lively six rayed asterism.
There is a clear "14K P" to the shank, for "plumb" or exact karat gold. Weight is good for form at about 4.5 grams on my portable digital scale.
Condition is quite fine with clean and bright precious metal surfaces. The sapphires are well preserved - the diamond does its reflective thing. There are a couple of thin shallow pin scratches low down on one side of the shank that I'm mentioning here simply for absolute accuracy - these are obviously unobtrusive and have no impact whatsoever on wearing or that "look" you want.
In that regard, all other evidence of finger and drawer duty supports its treasured keeping. A look at the pics should give a good idea of appearance and condition. Ring size is about 6 1/2 on my jeweler's ring mandrel (the bottom edge of the shank reaches that line on the mandrel).Vertical at the front - so yes, it will surely be noticed. If you prefer vintage solid gold jewelry for value and the distinct bonus of a road less travelled, or simply wish a single immediate improvement to the ambience of any day you chose, this will have great meaning for you.
