A brilliant-cut sapphire displays an elegant and desirable lilac hue in this creation from the famed American jewelry firm Raymond Yard. The 5.10-carat sapphire is certified by the Gemological Institute of America as originating in Ceylon, with no heat treatments used to achieve its striking color. Sapphires from this region are highly prized for their incredible color, and this sapphire exhibits a particularly fine shade of purple. The coveted gemstone is accented by two tapered bullet diamonds, four trapeze diamonds and thirty-two round diamonds totaling 0.94 carats. Set in platinum.
