Comment: Rock-solid value sapphire in the best sky blue. Big face, but also longish window, though mostly under tilt, not too bad a window but it needs acknowledgment. In such a gem, you have to make a trade-off between a great color and a huge visual appearance (easy 2.5 carat) versus a weak (if still fully colored) centre. However, after setting the window will be hardly noticeable. At $1500/carat a good deal for an e-ring with a full-sized unheated sapphire of top color. See handshot. Ignore photo on certificate (which had to be scanned from a pale copy). Inclusions only under lens (and on 32 fold image). Always blue, never dark, never pale.
