The sapphire in this ring, as well as the setting, are of excellent quality and craftsmanship! I have searched for 3 years to find a sapphire of this quality, and none I have seen could reach the exceptional qualities, especially at this price point. Rene sells VS quality sapphires … No inclusions to the naked eye! The cut is amazing! It sparkles as every turn of the hand. There is no zoning or windowing in the sapphire either. These are the best of the best, and from the source – Sri Lanka! The setting that I have is very feminine and beautiful. Having the gemological report helps me to provide an accurate picture for an appraisal for my insurance company. I highly recommend these beautiful sapphire rings! Rene’s customer service is super!
