This is a wonderful Sapphire Ring! The center stone is fantastic, transparent Sapphire cabochon (2.5CT). There are four faceted Sapphires on each side, they arranged in a lovely leaf pattern. Ring is created from sterling silver and then plated with 18K yellow gold. The plating is repeated 6 times, with different temperature. It's a complicated, special, very old technique, which garanties that plating will not wears off and stays in place for many decades. Ring is size 8; could be re-sized.
