    Condition Notes: A dreamy sapphire is the star of this turn-of-the-century showstopper! Largest mine-cut diamond measures 4.18 x 4.10 x 3.04 mm. Completed by a 14k gold pinstem and catch, as well as a bale at the top that has been soldered in the upright position. Some diamonds fall into the I clarity range. The piece looks slightly misshapen, as the sapphire centerpiece is off center. Circa 1900.
