This is a gemstone of great beauty and exceptional rarity. The definition of rarity is something that cannot be replaced easily and this extraordinary jewel is the embodiment of that definition. Found in a deposit in a remote mountainous region of India exhausted by 1887 this very fine velvety sapphire was taken from the ground masterfully faceted and then during the Art Deco period set into a simple elegant diamond set platinum mount. Pure beauty created by the earth and elevated by craftsmen. A true Masterpiece.
