It's been nearly 20 years since we have seen a sapphire of this color and size come to auction! On October 7, 2020, Sotheby's Hong Kong will hold an auction for a stunning, 118.88 carat blue sapphire stone. The SSEF & Gübelin labs have examined and graded the color of this unheated, Burmese Sapphire as "royal blue" - truly fit for a king or queen! The shape of the blue sapphire is cushion-cut, and is held within a platinum pendant setting surrounded by a halo of 16.06, total carat weight, pear-shaped diamonds. Blue Sapphires are a beautiful choice for both fashion and couples wedding rings! A blue sapphire engagement ring with a diamond halo is a classic and elegant style that has & will continue to withstand the test of time! At My Trio rings, we offer matching wedding ring sets featuring blue sapphires for you and your partner to wear as a symbol of your love and commitment to one another. Nothing says "I love you," like matching sapphire wedding rings! According to Sotheby's, the estimated sale price is $5 million. At this auction, there will be 118 pieces being sold, offering a variety of colored gemstones and avant-garde jewelry pieces. Explore the details of this auction on National Jeweler's Website.
