Comment: If it weren't for its fine color, this sapphire would have set free again. But we are in the 'colored gemstone business' and unheated sapphires without window in cornflower blue cannot be left to escape anymore, even if some tiny black spots may be visible under closer inspection. What looks (almost) terrible on our tell-all images is hardly visible in person, but makes a two carats unheated sapphire with 8x5mm and no window the most affordable budget-option amongst serious contenders. Before you jump for the price though, consider the setting options. Check-out its depth, lengthwise it is 74% but also it is deeper than it is wide. What does this mean for jewelry? A setting must accommodate a very high, somewhat untidy, girdle and ideally hide the not 100% centered culet (the lowest point in the gem). Hence, a bezel with closed sides would be the cleverest choice. See old sample images from our workshop below. These are all-day all-activity settings, not classic princess styles. If you want this gem set in a more delicate style, we'll have to re-think the obviously heavy gent's ring solution. Under $1k/carat a snatch in the category of unheated fine blue sapphires over two carats.

P.S. Note the lack of color in the side- and back-images. This shows that the cutter chose just the right cutting plane to bring out the best possible color. To compare, here is a  different sapphire, where the ideal color was in the sideview, or vertical table.
